The Jellybean Forest
Two friends harvest jelly beans for a pet and meet a selfish princess in this underdeveloped and under-rehearsed kids' show. The bored young audience talks constantly.
The Fall Of Team Justice
Incomprehensible, puerile and amateurishly produced, this 90-minute show about superheroes and the "red menace" is 85 minutes too long. Think children playing dress-up.
At its best, this solo rendering of a former TV agent's journey from mid-life crisis to supposed enlightenment is tolerable dinner-party conversation. At its worst, it's overacted, irritating and often offensive.
How To Outsmart A Troll...
Kory Livingstone's largely charmless version of the Three Billy Goats Gruff has some decent songs, but the musician has few storytelling skills and fails to connect with his young audience.
An obvious, insincere rant about two Toronto transplants - one an aspiring starlet, the other a sarcastic screenwriter - who are living together in L.A. Pointless, unfunny and lacking any human or artistic truths.
Rich White Bitch
This therapy-and-preaching session masquerading as a piece of autobiographical theatre hits some truths, but the presentation is frustrating and self-indulgent.
This play opens with a masturbation sequence - fitting, since you'll feel screwed out of a good time while watching this creepy story about twins who rent a room in... um, you tell me. The cast deserves better.
