Queer Acts Review: Gavin Crawford "Friend" "Like" #Me. GO SEE IT!

"For all his bite, he never comes across as cruel. Even when he made squirm, lampooning a pompous theatre artiste (in two centuries!!) although it hit close to home, I had to laugh. He makes it safe to laugh, and that takes skill as much as talent. No matter how savagely he rips into his targets, he's every bit as hard on himself, and his comedic neuroses are bravely on disply. Through it all he remains essentially a nice gay guy from small town Alberta. By the bye, apropos of nothing (except how damn good this show is), I laughed pretty much non-stop from the opening voiceover to the final bow."


Queer Acts Review: Castrati: An Electro Drag Opera. Seriously Hilarious & Hilariously Serious

"And is it ever Queer! Nothing short of a relentless, singing-dancing, full frontal, technicolour assault, replete with queer cultural references from Harry Hay’s Radical Faeries to hippy drag queens, the Coquettes and Lindsay Kemp from Bel Canto to The B52s and even Frazer’s The Golden Bough. Hovering over it all the is spirit of David Bowie circa the divine Ziggy, giving a fake onstage blow-job to Mick Ronson. As fun as all these references (real or imagined) may be, Castrati is in and of itself a delightful romp, set to wild song, with hallucinatory projections that range from the ridiculous to the sublimely beautiful.. HIghly recommended!"


Review: Many Loves' Tender Mercy in Love and Death

"The themes are Love and Death, and as with any play about death it is entirely concerned with life; particularly with the ephemera that accumulate into a life lived or a love fulfilled: phone messages, train trips, mums and dads, hobbies, vacations, growing old. ...

"Many Loves is a tender, playful, ritualized exploration of that nexus. In its last magical moments it brings us full circle, back to the joyful beginnings of life; ever-renewing, ever-lasting.You have two chances to see Many Loves at Queer Acts theatre Festival: tonight at 7:30pm; Saturday at 9:00pm. I highly recommend it."
