2018 Audience Reviews
The following reviews were submitted by Fringe Member: Anna Palmquist
Company: MonTra Performance
Show: Aphrodite's Refugees
Venue: Rarig Center Xperimental
The history in this show is awesome! The way she portrays each member of her family is amazing. The stories are great and heart braking and beautiful and funny. The painting part was cool too. The only this I didn't connect with was the weird echoy bits she does about the gods. That seemed really our of place and disconnected from the rest of the show. I would cut that and use the time to tell more about her family. It's cool that she is creating awareness about refugees so it's worth seeing just for that aspect!

Show: Couple Fight: The Musical!
Venue: Rarig Center Thrust
Not a fan of the added Music
I've been lucky enough to see all the couples fights over the past years, and this group is my FAVORITE must see show. But I have to say, the music got in the way of experiencing the fights with the couples in real time, as if I was watching the original fight happen. Instead, they were singing about the fights, which felt one step removed. While the music was well sung and well written, it didn't work for me as well as the straight up "let's reenact a fight" format did. Next year please go back to your old format! You all rock! Hearts Forever!
