Close Second for Funniest Fringe Preview - Night 2
Kitty Kitty Kitty - For starters, you’ve got Sam Landman and Katie Willer walking around in cat ears. That visual’s pretty much all I need to sell me on this one. The plot involves a suicidal cat, and cat cloning, and cats pretending they know how to talk dirty to one another. And yes, it’s weird as heck. But that’s kind of why I like it. Again, it helps that the performers are so good. To sell a concept like this, they almost have to be. If they don’t take it “seriously,” how could we invest in such an oddball story. Love is apparently just as much a mystery to cats as it is to us human beings. Which I guess is comforting. Fringe Preview host Jeff Larson returned to the stage after the scene to say, "That was a strange thing to only be able to hear." Hey, Jeff, we saw it, and it was still mighty strange. But I'd like to see more.
