FRINGE REVIEW: Rocket & Sheshells In A Sofa So Good

There is a lot more to a dumpster couch than you might imagine.  Awkward mumble-clowns Rocket and Sheshells can attest to this.  Sure, their naiveté and cute ignorance allow for more adventures to come out of remote controls and vibrators than they are customarily known for.  And for that their imaginations are due some credit. When the play started I wondered how these two tongue-tied clowns could burble their way through an entire scene, never mind a play, but they do it wonderfully.  The beauty of this play (and the non-stop laughs that accompany it) is this terrific intersection where simplicity of set and props meets light hearted and insanely creative ideas.  You kind of get the sense you know where Sofa So Good is eventually going, but you’re excited to watch it happen.

Four out of five stars.
