Got something to say about a Fringe Show you’ve just seen?
Clash of the Titans was wonderfully entertaining family friendly comedy with gags, puns and very clever team plays that keeps me coming back year after year. Never quite knowing what to expect next, I was on the edge of my seat as the players tackled the various scenarios they faced with unexpectedly hilarious results. Five stars for this piece of unscripted genius.See All Reviews Submit a TalkFringe Review
I have just watched the second “episode” of Upstairs Downton and Sunday March 4th is the final – do not miss it! It’s not too late to pick up the story – it is recapped at the beginning – but with suggestions from the audience, who knows where the story will be heading? Be sure to see this team of hilarious improvisors making Adelaide proud!See All Reviews Submit a TalkFringe Review
Today I took the family to see Kokoda, as I saw this last year I didn’t want to miss out on showing my family what an amazing story and performance this is!
Todd Gray Todd Gray Todd Gray well what do I say, today was utterly brilliant. You held the whole audience in awe anticipating what was going to happen next. You have the talent to captivate your viewers and your scripts and acting was amazing.
To tell such a well written story with such raw emotion truly does show how much time and effort you put into every performance. This certainly portrays what our soldiers endured and the appreciation we have for them.
The poems that were told were quite emotional and were my favourite part of the show and brought a tear to my eye.
You got a standing ovation today and well and truly deserved!
Do yourself a favour and go and see this show you will not be disappointed!See All Reviews Submit a TalkFringe Review
Most people recognise that most actors are out of work on a regular basis. Fact of the game. Fact of life etc. Nick Mercer’s recount of his making ends meet while trying for those elusive acting roles is charming, funny and human. Pat Wilson’s monologues are witty and colourful as Nick relays life at the bottle shop during those peak times during the year; Christmas etc. The direction by Adrian Barnes is crisp and suitably energetic. All in all – it was a really good night out. I laughed and was thoroughly entertained by the talents of Nick Mercer. Worth a trip out to the Goodwood Institute. PS The Vietnamese bistro nearby was excellent!See All Reviews Submit a TalkFringe Review
An enthralling show! Todd Gray’s commitment and passion for his role and this show shines via an incredible energy in his re-enactment of an Australian ‘Chocolate Soldier’ during WWII. Kokoda had me completely hooked throughout and Todd Gray’s captivating acting performance was complemented beautifully and smoothly by the sound engineer. A highlight of this show is at several points, Todd Gray stops and flawlessly recites historic poem verses which is a great touch that sets the tone and mood in the room sublimely. The show is very non-visual, but Todd Gray paints the scene so fluently (with help from the sound effects) that you can picture the surroundings and characters he has conversations with as if they too had actors re-enacting them.
5/5 for sure! I wholeheartedly recommend Kokoda to anyone looking for a more ‘serious’ style of entertainment this fringe season (there are still a couple of humourous touches). It will suck you in from start to finish and it’s impact will leave you with a lasting stir of emotions and appreciation for those who served.See All Reviews Submit a TalkFringe Review
