Hello Generous Backers!
Today I finished my last show at 4:30pm here in Winnipeg and head home tomorrow. It has been quite an adventure in this Canadian Prairie Provence! The people here are lovely and they love their annual Fringe Festival. Many folks take two weeks "holiday" just to see as many shows as they can. My venue was in the Manitoba Museum and had 175 seats. Unfortunately, since I got panned by the local newspaper my first show, audiences tended to gravitate to 4 and 5 star shows. My average house was about 20. Those who came to the show enjoyed it and I did get some great reviews by the audiences in the comment section of my panned review. I got another great review in a local daily, which I will paste below.
Despite the unfavourable (yes, I write Canadian now) review, I had a great time performing, meeting fellow artists and seeing a bunch shows. There were 172 to choose from! The woman who put me up (my Billet) was super sweet and we had fun seeing shows together. Her cat, Mocha, and I got very close and in the end we were sleeping together!
I'm headed home for two weeks and then off to Edmonton for their Festival. We will see how MY THREE MOMS does up there, a couple of Provences over. I will keep you posted.
Meanwhile, check out this great review of MY THREE MOMS by Winnipeg's Jenny Revue.
Thanks so much for your support for my Canadian tour!
Bye for now,
