In this episode, Ruth and Liz challenge smash Fringe sensations/musical improv troupe Songbuster to a lip sync battle. Featuring Steph Malek, Matty Burns, and Orphan Black’s Kristian Bruun.
If you missed episode 1 of The SHOW SHOW, where Theatre Brouhaha’s Kat Sandler and Tom McGee get tipsy and recount the history of the Fringe Festival, don’t worry! You can watch it here.
Nine musical theatre performers set out to create their own legendary musical from scratch, right before your eyes. Will it turn into a Little Shop of Horrors? Will they Grease the audience? Will the sun come out tomorrow for this group? Your suggestions help drive the creation of a never-seen-before-and-never-seen-again musical!
Directed by Carly Heffernan and performed by Tricia Black, Kristian Bruun, Matty Burns, Ashley Comeau, Alexandra Hurley, Stephanie Malek, Josh Murray, Nug Nahrgang, and Connor Thompson, with musical direction by Tom King.
About The SHOW SHOW
The SHOW SHOW features aspiring hosts Ruth Goodwin (The Howland Company) and Liz Johnston (Bad Dog Theatre) as they interview theatre artists and comedians about life in Toronto as a performer, on their show, about shows.
Eager to conduct the greatest interview of all time, The SHOW SHOW is a mishmash of various styles—one minute it’s a lip sync battle, the next it’s Theatre Brouhaha drunk in a living room. Directed by the incomparable Jacqueline Andrade.
