by Phillip Andrew Bennett Low | 8/4/09 • Well, I loved it. I don’t know why more people aren’t seeing it.
Her first show, All the Things I Never Told My Mother, will always have a special place in my heart. And her last show, I’ll Marry You For Health Insurance, remains by far her best-written script to date (albeit one that I struggled with). But this one? Definitely her most entertaining.

Basically, it’s not much more than a collection of goofy recollections of drunken (and otherwise) debauchery. These are punctuated by a series of crappy, amateurish, kindergarten-theatre-style transitions that I found hysterical. (In particular, the line “Oh, look, everybody — a music stand!” is a standout.)
There’s really not much to say that the show description doesn’t make abundantly clear. This is one Fringe show that is exactly what it looks like: the best spoken-word in a raft…ever. Nothing more. And nothing less.
Phillip Andrew Bennett Low (email@example.com) is a playwright and poet, storyteller and mime, theater critic and libertarian activist, who lurks ominously in the desert wilds of St. Louis Park, feasting upon the hygienically-prepared flesh of the once-living. His main claim to fame is probably as co-founder of the Rockstar Storytellers, and as founder/producer of Maximum Verbosity, a garage-band-like theater troupe that is in a state of constantly re-defining itself.
