I've been to three more shows at FringeNYC, and my Gothamist theatre cohort Mallory has posted another set of reviews today, including one from yours truly about a show you absolutely must not miss but don't have that many opportunities left to see.
The Salacious Uncle Baldrick is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. It's a hilarious satire of 17th Century French farce with a modern sensibility. There were literally moments in this show that I couldn't stop laughing no matter how hard I tried. The writing is clever, the cast is fantastic -- and there are only two performances left, tomorrow and Saturday. The show I was at last night definitely still had tickets left, so I imagine the next two do as well, so check-it-out.
And credit goes to whom it's due: with over 180 shows and limited time, as much as I've been trying to see a lot (10 shows in four days so far), I obviously had to pick-and-choose things that I felt either seemed promising, interesting or representative of the type of theatre the Fringe tries to promote. I don't know that I would have chosen to see The Salacious Uncle Baldrick had it not been for this post by Bex. She knows her funny!
