Fr!ngeist: SplasH2O

After several days of beautiful weather, we were due for a nice storm. And since tanning is not an option today, go see a Fr!nge Play or two (or eight) this afternoon. To make sure you don’t see a dud.. read on…
Torontoist was lucky enough to catch SplasH2O yesterday, foreshadowing today’s moisture. You may have seen the trio around the Fr!nge Tent saturating passerbys with some impromptu aquatic comedy, but count yourself as lucky if you didn’t… you’d be going in fresh.
The French (from France) and Canadian (from here) import put on a technically tight production, looking at water in its various facets (faucets?) through high-energy, modern-mime, sketch comedy. While some of the filler sketches may have been done before, the vast majority of the show was drizzling with creativity and dripping with genius.
In the end, don’t be a wet blanket… go to the Fr!nge and go see these boys. Expect sold-out performances so buy your tickets in advance.
Warning: France Lost the World Cup (extra half ist awarded).
Pre-show music: Vaudevillesque Deliciousness.
Note: Family Friendly.
