Vancouver Fringe Festival review: The Birdmann: Birdhouse

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Fans of Trent Baumann’s Birdmann will be thrilled to meet his companion, the delightfully deadpan Egg (Sachie Mikawa).

      When their birdhouse is threatened by the Regurgitator, a nature-killing phenomenon, Egg starts running back and forth across the stage. When Birdmann asks what she’s doing, she replies, “Panicking.” Later, attesting to her vegan status, she says, “I don’t even look at the Milky Way.” The world-saving fun in this show includes music, juggling, and a convention of stuffed toys. Successfully silly for an all-ages audience.
