I'm a semi-intelligent person. Well, I'd like to think so. While watching this one-man show about Social Security Numbers (or as we Canadians call them, S.I.N.'s), the information that came at me was overwhelming. I have to say, he's one of the most active actors on stage I've seen as he jogged for most parts of the show and performed enough action that it was no mystery that he's fit. It's one of those topics you don't think about, Social Insurance Numbers. At least I don't. Well, it was the last day when the fringe was slowing down and I had a full morning already. Let's just say my energy petered out in the first half, but I perked up at the last half hour. This show was getting some mixed reviews but only because it didn't appeal to the lowest common denominator. It needed intelligent people to appreciate it and I wasn't one of them. If you're attending other fringe festivals in Canada and the U.S., then check this out when it arrives in your town.
