With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Lynne Jassem answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show
The tale of a driven 10-year old on the Perry Como TV Show in 1957 who is juggling her stage mom, gender confusion and mortality…all while tap dancing.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
I felt, after working on my show for over a year, that it’s ready for “the big time”.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
This is my first time, but my director has been the last two years and he said: sleep, eat, stay warm…and don’t get cray cray.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
Well….that was one point I would make! But I think the tap dancing, physical comedy, mime, song and story-telling combo is very unusual.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
I would like to see Ruth Lynne Miller…because #1 I am being interviewed with her…and #2 she is even older than me.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
