RUNAWAY RUE, reviewed – Gia On The Transfer


Reviewed by Heather Dowling

After I heard about this kid-friendly puppet musical telling the story of a canine who runs away, I keep in mind pondering, “A puppet present for youths at Fringe? Actually?” Oh, sure… actually.

RUNAWAY RUE is admittedly entertaining. Actually heartwarming. Actually one of the vital professionally executed musicals I’ve seen pulled off in 60 minutes at The Hollywood Fringe. My face was hurting from smiling after the primary half-hour, and I discovered completely happy tears by the tip. And the kiddos within the viewers alongside me have been clearly captivated, being provided mild knowledge about household, friendship, belonging and the which means of “furever.”

When Rue’s Furever mother drops a bombshell—they’re shifting throughout the nation!— Rue is one devastated canine. Even Rue’s Fairy Dogmother can’t change her thoughts about shifting to Hollywoof, particularly when Rue learns she’s shifting in with a brand new step-dad and his good pet named Jack.

It was a delight to witness. The puppets and puppeteering have been fantastic, however as an actor and typically singer, I used to be knocked again by the unbelievable human performances “supporting” the furry forged. These actors delivered to life such a vivid and playful world and the vocal performances have been unbelievable.

I’m now satisfied that I’d like to see extra household pleasant, child acceptable reveals at Fringe after seeing the broad smiles on the faces of kids and their dad and mom as they loved a LIVE efficiency, on stage, collectively. I’m sure that a few of these kiddos found – for the primary time possibly – what we Fringers already know: dwell theatre is magical.
