If eleoquent can be used to describe a hip hop musical this hip hop musical is elequent from beginning to end..all the elements are here for an evening that not only made me laugh,,,,but made me feel...and want more of these two amazing actors...if you miss this show...you are not in the inner circle of the musical theatre world.

Any other shows that look like stand-outs? What are people most interested in seeing this year?

I saw Bash'd tonight. What a stunning piece of theatre. The sad part is that the theatre wasn't even half full. Those guys are fantastically talented. They have constructed something that is fresh, funny, and touching. I really enjoyed myself.

I believe there are two more performances left. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Everyone, get yourselves to the Village Theatre and experience this piece before it's gone.

Too bad the Actor's Playhouse is shutting down. This show would be a big success there. I have no doubt, though, that if there are producers with enough interest, that these guys can land an Off-Broadway space, and garner some great reviews and word of mouth.

I didn't get to see Bash'd at Toronto Fringe, but it certainly was the one that gained the most buzz this year. Glad to see this show doing good elsewhere.

I'm going to try and see it tonight. It sounds great.

As for the Fringe, I'm reviewing shows and have seen six productions so far. The only thing worth seeing so far is Bombs In Your Mouth. Seriously.

So far, I can highly recommend this show, of course, The Gospel According to Matthew, and A Beautiful Child.

I just read the nytheatre.com Review of Bash'd by Martin Denton.

Very well-written and informative.

It's 3/4 way down the page, on the left hand column.

So far, it seems not. I really wish they would. Hopefully, this show will get a run in NYC. It needs to be seen.

I hope to go again on Friday, which is the last show.

Bah, I have to work on Tuesday. I do want to try and see this, though, based on your good reviews. I'll try and go Friday.
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?
