Review: Jewish Girls Don't Kayak (Fringe)

by Bruce McKay

Where else can you get something like this show for $10 but at the Fringe. Robyn Israel takes us through, according to the program notes, a “fictionalized account” of her life. However much that may be – and it all seemed pretty real to me – it is delivered with marvelously disarming candor and poignancy. Homage is given matter-of-factly yet is reverent, cultural identity is questioned yet never discarded and Gentile men are different (I didn’t know they could be so … so … so retractable) though mom will come around at some point. While this is listed as comedy – and it did have me laughing out loud – it is so much more. Highly recommended.
