KC Fringe "5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche" review by Detailer

5 Lesbians campy fun
Rating: 3

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche
KC Fringe Festival

If you like the flavor of an expanded Saturday Night Live sketch, I think you will find that these gals serve up a tasty treat.

I like the well-defined characters.  They connect with each other in a way that feels real even as they are reveling in the campy style.

The concept that the audience is with them in a meeting is used very effectively without being threatening or manipulative, and the ongoing spotlight on one audience member is very well done.  Often a dangerous thing to do, but they make it work very well.

There are times when I find the blocking static, and I long for some levels and more varied stage pictures.

The script doesn’t have much meat, but then, it doesn’t want any.
