Fringe Festival 2016: "Sometimes There's Wine"

Day: 8

Show: 36

Category: Comedy

By: Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool

Created by: Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool

Location: Theatre in the Round

Summary: A follow-up to the Ivey-winning 2 Sugars, Room for Cream, but this time with wine.

Highlights: I love 2 Sugars, Room for Cream so much that I saw it three times. This show is more of the same, which is funny, smart, observational comedy by two of the funniest women in the Twin Cities. Much like coffee, wine is something that people drink to help get them through social occasions. Like weddings, work functions you don't really want to go to, or a long layover at the airport. Toting a glass of wine around the stage, Shanan and Carolyn are funny, natural, charming, and very personable as they portray several different women, with a few recurring characters. I could watch these two every day, so I hope they continue to develop Sometimes There's Wine and that we'll see it again.

Warning: the performance I attended sold out, so you might want to make reservations in advance or get to the theater early.
