Review: The Templeton Philharmonic (Fringe 2011)

Reviewed by Gaëtan Charlebois

For most of this very happy 30 minutes of sketch comedy, I was laughing, but - good deal of the time I was wondering: Who are these young women and where the hell do they come from? Their performances - in a pile of tiny vignettes linked nicely together by outbursts of movement and dance - were incredibly proficient. The script, by the two (Briana Templeton and Gwynne Phillips) and their director (Kevin Matviw) wobbles occasionally with some long set-ups which are more interesting than the punchlines, but when they do characters (instead of jokes) - like two lunatic ladies who lunch - it is not only a marvel to behold but an absolute hoot. If you need a brisk theatrical wind to cool you down, this is the show! (BTW: They're from Toronto.)
