Pineapple Club – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

Pineapple ClubExcerpt from press release:

Robin Henderson, creator of the Best of Fringe hit Dance Animal, is thrilled to be returning to the Toronto Fringe Festival with Pineapple Club, from July 7th-16th, 2017at the Factory Theatre Mainspace. The opening performance is on Friday July 7th at 3:15pm. Then Sat July 8th at 7:30pm; Mon July 10th at 9:00pm; Tues July 11th at 1:15pm; Wed July 12th at 11:30pm; Fri July 14th at 7:30pm; Sun July 16th at 12:00pm. Media is welcome at all performances.

One part comedic dance, one part sketch, one part social commentary, Pineapple Club provides a joyful, yet dark take on the emotional fallout of 2016. Loosely anchored in the five stages of grief and borrowing from the catalogues of artists who passed in 2016, Henderson blends the diverse talents of Paul Barnes, Jonathan Shaboo and Pascale Yensen. The Pineapple Club is a blazing mash-up of comedic dance, sketch comedy, puppetry, and music.

Welcome to the Pineapple Club. Come for the comedy. Stay for the calamity.
