The Soaps! A Live Improvised Soap Opera: City Hall Edition (Fringe must-see show)

The Soaps: A Live Improvised Soap OperaThis is the second year that The Soaps has been asked at the last minute to step in for a Fringe show that has cancelled. It’s terrific news for me. I love The Soaps, as you can tell from my review of last year’s show.  The cast is fast, funny, and very talented.

It’s good news for Fringe because the show is a Fringe fund raiser so all the money from ticket sales goes to Fringe.

It’s good news for you because it means that you have a chance to see some spectacular improvisation, laugh for an hour, and try not to pee your pants. I strongly advise going to the washroom before the show.

It’s not such good news for the show because they aren’t in the printed Fringe program and the blurb in the online program is pretty short. There’s more information in their press release. Last year there were a lot of people who didn’t find out about the show until it was too late for them to see it. Don’t let that happen to you this year.

I don’t know if the editors are going to let me say that The Soaps is a Fringe must-see show in the title so I’m saying it again here, just in case. Go see The Soaps! A Live Improvised Soap Opera.
