Titanna Bowa: How to Succeed in Hollywood

 

Review


Cubic Centipede Production’s take on making it in Hollywood is a dark but humorous portrayal of celebrity stardom and the film production process. The production company that brought last years The Sinner’s Club returns with over an hour of murder, kidnapping, and satirical comedy, spinning an intriguing tale of Hollywood’s egotistic, talented, and adored stars. Desperate for fame, a group of immoral and somewhat psychotic filmmakers kidnap Wilma Clifton (Stephanie O’Neill), tinsel town’s treasured sweetheart, and force her to star in their magnum opus. What follows onstage is simultaneously dysfunctional, chaotic, and funny, with its many talented performers portraying men and women destined to make in a land of vice and luxury. The play succeeds through the chaos, despite so much onstage action and a relatively small space to work with. The cast and crew are able to balance their unique blend of satire and humor extraordinarily well, Titanna Bowa is definitely worth checking out -Levi Gogerla

    Hey everybody! If you are looking for an absolutely awesome show to see at the Edmonton Fringe Festival this coming week then you have to go and see Titanna Bowa: How to Succeed in Hollywood. From the crazy creators of last years hit Fringe show The Sinners Club, writer/directors Dylan Rosychuk and Jeffory Kuzzak Punyi have concocted an all new, joyously weird and extremely entertaining laugh riot that will only wholly surprise with how boldly ludicrous and ludicrously bold it can be. Rosychuk and Punyi have impressively constructed this darkly hysterical production with such a sharply written satirical edge that it practically overflows with a massive amount of refreshing originality, gleefully insanity and unrestrained creativity that will always have you laughing out loud throughout all of its bloody mayhem. Plus all of the performances from the entire cast are totally excellent and entertainingly pull you right into the darkly fun and ever increasing absurdity going on around them to a joyously dynamite effect that is truly infectious thanks to their constantly silly energy. As you have Stephanie O’Neill, Marc Rico Ludwig, Katie Martin, Jackson Card, Sarah Elder and Nibras Alam along with Rosychuk and Punyi themselves holding nothing back while filling the stage with a bizarrely awesome electricity that is just too much fun to resist. This show is a definite must see that you are not going want to miss.

    This show has a sequence in the middle that is the hardest I have laughed in ages, and then it makes you think about why you were laughing. Black satirical comedy done right. One of the best shows I’ve seen thus far at this years Fringe.

    an iteration on 2017’s Sinners’ Club that ironed out most of the kinks
    the show keeps a rollicking pace, with a high density of gags, yet rarely is overwhelming in its inanity
    Rosychuk & Punyi, once frequently lost in their own chaos, now have found their groove
    writing of the downtempo sections is a lot stronger than it was for Club
    back it up with watertight performances aboard free, breezy dialogue, and you got a hit on your hands
    uh, weaknesses
    satire is a bit limp and some of the swearing, superfluous
    a grand time with scarcely a weak link to be seen
    4.5/5
    can’t wait to see their next offering
