Bohemian RAPPsody - De-Taming of the Shrew - Shift Happens
WARNING: GODDESSES UNLEASHED! Unabashedly Wyld Womyn undulate groova-licious jubilation at redemption and release. Resounding beats drum, voices lift, spirits move-and worse, thoughts evoked! BEWARE YE! RUN!
Yes, shift happens. This was another one where the singers got off the rhythm of their pre-recorded accompaniment and things just kind of snowballed. There was also rapping, hence the title. It means well, female empowerment and all (and when done well, I'm a big fan) but I'm not sure how entertaining this particular Fringe offering might turn out to be. The preview didn't do them any favors. But kudos for going big. Lot of performers, high degree of difficulty, likely their first audience. We at least know the sort of thing they're shooting for now.
