Taste of Fringe 2018 Recap
Red Hot Mama
We were thrilled to welcome Melanie Gall and her powerfully emotive, technically dazzling voice as she shares her one-woman musical “bio-play” with Kelowna. Gall took to the stage as Sophie Tucker, who recaps her rise through early 20th century vaudeville, cabaret and Hollywood while giving a performance at the peak of her career. The format allows Gall to fully inhabit Tucker, relating the indignities of being forced to perform in blackface and fired for her plus size, telling jokes that would make Joan Rivers blush, and singing the ‘20s standards and bawdy love song.
Fresh off their dates at the Edmonton Fringe Festival, the award-winning RAGMOP Theatre brought their unique brand of comedy to the Mary Irwin Theatre for Hotel Vortruba, a surreal wordless physical comedy where finding shelter is not so simple. With other worldly room service, broken lamps, creaky floorboards, and giant rats, a guest confronts a proprietor who has been hiding his true self. A gorgeous, hilarious and daring theatrical experience where magic lingers in every shadow. Come check into Hotel Vortruba.
