Award­win­ning tal­ent

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

Ev­ery show’s ob­vi­ously a win­ner at the Fringe, since they won the lot­tery to get in. But some artists have more con­crete proof of their fab­u­lous­ness than oth­ers.

Take Sheila McCarthy, for in­stance, who’s won a Dora and two Ge­nie Awards. She stars in It’s Al­ways You: A Mu­si­cal (from Wed­nes­day, July 3, at the He­len Gar­diner Phe­lan), Dan Red­i­can and Scott White’s show about al­ter­nate re­al­i­ties.

Fringe vet­er­ans Morro and Jasp won a Dora for Morro And Jasp: Go Bake Your­self (from Wed­nes­day, July 3, at 918 Bathurst), and they’re not just re­heat­ing it but adding some new in­gre­di­ents this time around.

And last year’s win­ner of the Fringe New Play Award, Kat San­dler, re­turns with We Are The Bomb (from Wed­nes­day, July 3, at the Pad­dock), an Oc­cupy move­ment-in­spired look at rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies tak­ing over their favourite wa­ter­ing hole and declar­ing it a sov­er­eign na­tion.

In all three cases, sounds like the ticket hold­ers will be the win­ners.

Morro and Jasp serve up their award-win­ning Go Bake Your­self again.
