Tired Clichés had a great run at the 2010 Winnipeg Fringe, which is wrapping up around me as I write. I sold out part of the run and had big and really responsive houses for the whole thing.
And check out some of these reviews!!
Now it's on to Edmonton Fringe... after a little camping expedition across the southern Canadian prairies!
(aka. FOUR-and-a-HALF STARS)
- Anthony Augustine, Uptown Magazine (Winnipeg)
"[Eddington is] a whiz at the breathless free association that marks Dawe’s observational humour."
- Morley Walker, Winnipeg Free Press
doesn't have Dawe's geeky boyish charm, he does display many admirable
qualities in his own performance style: he's quick, intense (to the
point that he borders on frightening sometimes), and - as you might
expect from a composer - he has a great ear for the rhythm of language.
There's nothing clichéd about his performance or Dawe's writing."
- Joff Schmidt, CBC Manitoba
"As someone once said, you can’t miss with good material, and
this is an absolutely great TJ Dawe script. What I liked best, though,
is the way that Alex Eddington made it his own, by bringing his
physicality and talent for sound to the production. It was a totally
mesmerizing hour. ..."
