Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Walt Disney World. I can hold court with any group, relaying the history of the Disney company (especially the theme parks). I love it so so much.
And I love this show.
Rory Sheridan tells the story of Walt Disney through a mouse’s written memoir found by a space archeologist in the future. It’s irreverent, hilarious, weird, and spectacularly brilliant. He embraces the digital technology required of this year’s Fringe very well and kept my attention through the entire show. His performances are ridiculously good, playing multiple characters and captivating me for every moment.
And it’s not just because I love Disney.
It certainly helps that I’m familiar with the source material. But who isn’t?
I love love love love love this show. I love this show more online than I would on stage, I think, and that might be the measuring stick by which this year’s shows are judged.
Regardless, this is the one — so far — that I will be talking about once the festival is over.
DO NOT MISS IT.
