Blank: The Musical: Broadway Bad Girls

 

Review


Anyone who has been to a bridal or baby shower knows about Mad Libs. Blank: The Musical brings this party ice breaker to the stage, putting a new spin on an old favourite. It’s a daring concept, and it almost works. The thing about Mad Libs is that they’re hit and miss. When they work, they’re hysterical, and when they don’t, things get a little awkward. Because this show is based entirely on this concept, its success depends largely on the audience. On a good night, the crowd can get silly, and the impressive talents of the show’s three stars can shine through. With an audience that is shy or shaky with their grammar, though, the show falls a little flat. To really make the most of this musical, bring your weirdest words and don’t be afraid to be a little risqué. -Erin Wallace

    What an awful review. Erin’s Wallace, did you even see the show? Because your review reads more like a synopsis and explanation of how improv is suggestion based entertainment. If Vue weekly wants to continue as a Fringe main staple of Fringe show reviews, they better look to hire some better writers, and maybe some who know what a review is.

    Blank was a entertaining and fun improv show with an incredibly talented cast. I throughly enjoyed the show, and can’t wait to see it a second time.

    I think one star is an incredibly unfair rating for this show! It is a fantastic concept, and they do pull it off! Though the reviewer is right that the show depends heavily on the audience, I think the talented performers did an incredible job of making the songs funny and entertaining even if the suggestions didn’t quite fit. Not to mention the fact that the performers all delivered incredible voices, and chose songs that suited the show and their voices perfectly! I would recommend this show to all my friends!

    One star is inaccurate. It’s a fun show with charming performers. Go! Laugh. Enjoy! It’s worth it.

    While I think that this show could benefit from some more organization, it was very funny and it certainly does NOT deserve a 1 star review. Absolutely unfair.
