Nancy Snipper's comments on Fringe 2013 shows she has seen

I was delighted to
attend three soloist shows where each actor performed with stamina, great
characterization and self-deprecating humour. That being said, it is one thing
to act and another to write a script that is not merely a showpiece for your
talents. I think the message in these two of the plays got lost: “Little Orange
Man” and “Zack to the Future”. Certainly there was great wit in the latter and
impeccable comedic timing. Zack Adams is a great talent. However, in both
plays, the script/scenarios meandered and the result lacked emotional impact
I was most impressed
however, with Erika MacDonald’s performance in her biopic play, “Tap Me on the
Shoulder”. She sequenced events detailing how she became a rapper very well. Furthermore,
her rapping was excellent. She really was professional in her delivery, and
However, the same can’t
be said for Ingrid Hansen’s “Little Orange Man” – a play involving plush-toys
that serve as characters. The story was too absurd, and the interaction with
the audience was rather childish. It was about herself as a girl suffering from
ADD who misses her granddad and looks for him in the sea, but not without
dozens of mini tales thrown in between the search for him. If only she had
gotten to the point. Hansen’s energy is
electric, but a story must have substance, and it lacked that. This is sad,
because it really – to my mind – was about mourning the loss of her granddad.
