Bubble Show for Adults Only takes the audience on a wild ride from start to finish. Multiple times throughout the show I found myself turning to my friend with wide eyes thinking ‘what have we gotten ourselves into?’ But the pure joy and hilarity of the performance – and most importantly, the bubbles – constantly drew us back in.
If you’re looking for a show that goes beyond usual Fringe level of weirdness, this is the show for you. The quirkiness of the two characters on stage, matched with the astonishing ability to control such a fragile medium as bubbles, made for a very engaging performance.
For opening weekend, the artists did a wonderful job. There were some minor technical issues on the night but they easily breezed through these to continue on with the show. I’d recommend sitting towards the front of the stage or as close as possible, as a side view does expose some of the magic of the performance.
As the name of the show suggests, this is for adults only. Now if you’re not keen on the weird and wonderful side of Fringe, the artists were quick to inform us post-show that they also perform a family friendly version. Which I’m sure will be just as fun and quirky as it’s adult interpretation.
All in all, if you’re down for a wild ride through abstract concepts using bubbles in a way you never thought humanly possible, then this is the show for you.
