My Sinking Ship

Well, I loved it. I don’t know why more people aren’t seeing it.

Her first show, All the Things I Never Told My Mother, will always have a special place in my heart. And her last show, I’ll Marry You For Health Insurance, remains by far her best-written script to date (albeit one that I struggled with). But this one? Definitely her most entertaining.

Basically, it’s not much more than a collection of goofy recollections of drunken (and otherwise) debauchery. These are punctuated by a series of crappy, amateurish, kindergarten-theatre-style transitions that I found hysterical. (In particular, the line “Oh, look, everybody — a music stand!” is a standout.)

There’s really not much to say that the show description doesn’t make abundantly clear. This is one Fringe show that is exactly what it looks like: the best spoken-word in a raft…ever. Nothing more. And nothing less.
