The afternoon at the Fringe with the boys was great. A little expensive, but great. We enjoyed some of the buskers/outdoor shows (Deux Hoops and Secret Circus) and wandered the grounds. We also got their ice-cream and mini donuts covered. It was good. The best was the show. I picked right this year! Yay! Kidprovisors proved to be a fabulous choice. It suited both boys and they loved it. I also quite enjoyed the show. The group really merged the adult experienced improvisors with the young new improvisors very well and they gave us a truly entertaining hour of fun. Gibson is a full-body audience member, particularly when he laughs and he squirmed and roared through the whole thing. Oliver dropped his "I'm almost a teenager' attitude and was similarly engaged. Donovan Workun was both boys' favorite and they were thrilled to wave at him in the street after the show (and he waved back - so thrilled!). They both want to take improv classes. Now that's doing your job!
After we grabbed supper I met up with Mark and he took the boys off my hands so I could rush back to catch my two evening shows. The first, Teatro's Angels on Horseback, was a fun little show. I got my money's worth in laughs, but I was a bit disappointed with the lack of focus to the script. Jeff Haslam stole the show and I think Medley (Ryan Parker and Rachel Bowron) could do a whole Fringe show themselves, but I found it hard to figure out whose story we were seeing and why. It's a campy little piece and perhaps the party was just meant to be a set-up to get those crazy people in the same room together, I just wanted a little more flow and arc to the story.
