Theater critic Nelson Pressley gave us a very nice shout out at the end of his fringe review today:
A better bet: a comedy duo from New York called Delusions of Spandex, performing the poorly titled but often funny “Dorks on the Loose: It I Awkward.” They barely last 35 minutes, but at least they leave you wanting more.
And we also had this nice little interview in the article “How to Choose at the Fringe Festival?”
Last week we visited one production because the name sounded funny, because there were no wigs or tacky costumes in the publicity photo and because the theater was air-conditioned ( crucial, folks). “Dorks on the Loose: It I Awkward,” at the Warehouse, turned out to be a gem. It’s the brainchild of Phaea Crede, 26, and Becca Jones, 27, who run a monthly sketch-comedy show on New York’s Lower East Side under the name Delusions of Spandex. Both have training in theater and performance, including time in classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade, but “Dorks” is refreshingly un-highbrow: Over six sketches, the ladies skewer cellphone dependence (that sketch was originally written in a bar, the pair tells us by phone from New York), that “scourge on society” known as the hipster and “women’s news.” Where Jones is giddy, Crede is deadpan; it adds up to an exuberant 30 minutes. “Dorks on the Loose: It I Awkward” is Saturday at 3 p.m. and midnight. $15.
