FRINGE REVIEW: Uncanny Valley

Uncanny Valley has a huge imagination.  A nerd-fest musical in many ways, but also, a touching love story – this play unfolds in many weirdo ways. Mannequins are, if retail stores have taught me anything, portable, moldable models for clothing and accessories.  Yet, one would never know that in each one is a huge soul waiting to get out.  Hugo, the main nerd and creator of many masterful geek songs, longs for a mannequin, unfortunately for the uber nerd, this mannequin’s heart is not for him. At first.  And yes, it turns out that mannequins do have hearts.  Some even have Barry White-voices.  If a utopia where robots and humans co-exist harmoniously; a world where mannequins flirt with romance is your kind of thing, check this play out.  Your nerdy side will thank you. 

Four out of five stars.
