KISS AROUND PASS AROUND Review

CFF_Kiss Around Pass AroundLinks to all reviews can be found using the REVIEWS link at the top of the page. Blog postings, links and more are available on my Facebook fan page. You can also receive updates on Twitter from @BTCincyRob.

KISS AROUND PASS AROUND presented by Shoshinz as part of the 2015 Cincinnati Fringe Festival.

You can read the show description here.

When my niece was little, she would pull together a mish-mash of toys and spend hours creating her own little adventures. There is the same kind of simplicity and imagination in KISS AROUND, PASS AROUND.

Japanese performer Yanomi is a joy to watch. Her energy and charisma are infectious. As Kiss Around, Pass Around, she quickly had the audience under her quirky spell. Just thinking about the show makes me smile. A truly unique experience.

Perhaps the fringe-iest entry of the year. It’s definitely a Fringe experience I’ll remember for years. Three performances remain through June 5.

I would enjoy hearing what you think about the show or my review. All I ask is that you express your opinion without attacking someone else’s opinion. You can post your comments below
