Viral Reviews

I will write about my Fringe Festival experiences between tomorrow and Monday.

I’ll tell you this, possibly my two favorite plays, out of a great number of really good shows, have been American Jataka Tales and Candide Americana. The latter of these two I would recommend highly, I think EVERYONE WHO SEES this show will like it. The former, I’ll admit it, it might have just been me. I loved it, but you should make up your own mind.

Now, just so they’re all here, and without any pull quotes, I want to throw out the list of every review we’ve gotten for Viral. It’s my blog, I get to do this. Normally, I would be tempted to leave some of them out, but… I don’t really know how this happened, but we can’t leave any of them out.

They’re all actually… good.

We did a fun big gay musical, people were all “what?”. We did a radio play that was HIGH-LARIOUS, and the press was all, “I’m sorry, who are you?” We did a big rock musical and the press was… well, actually, it wasn’t even the press, everyone kinda hated that show…

So, we do a very small show, a very personal show, where we think it’s gonna be, maybe, twelve people who think it’s good. And that’s when people start saying “you have to see this”.

I swear to God, I’ll never figure it out.

Anyway, un-edited, here’s the list of all the press we’ve gotten from “Viral” by Mac Rogers.
