Description

Hilarious new improvised comedy starring members of Tony/Olivier Award-winning companies: Mischief Theatre and The Showstoppers. Smash-hit TV show Celestia 7 ran for 15 seasons. Some of the cast became international celebrities, others faded into obscurity. Now, headlining a sci- fi convention, they share your favourite episodes. Of course, the real drama lay behind the scenes. In-fighting, relationships, sexual tensions, ego... it was 15 years of science friction. An homage to everything from Star Trek to Galaxy Quest, you suggest what's in tonight's episode and Starship Improvise will boldly go where no improv comedy has gone before.

(****)
With the audience only providing the title, initial emotion, and starting location on a starship, this show has a predefined structure that gives it a big leg-up on other improvised shows. The pre-filmed credits and introductions tell us who their characters are within the Star Trek well defined command structure. With this as a starting point, the actors easily slide into their well worn roles to exploit the seams of fun in the given premise of the day.

It is early in the Fringe, and I have only seen 36 shows of the around 160 I will see. So far, this was the 6th most enjoyable I have seen at the Fringe this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: https://fringefan.com/
