Before the show began, the theatre was almost completely full of audience members sitting in their seats with big smiles, a few dance moves, and perhaps a beer in their hand. It must have been because they knew they were about to see a great show (in my humble opinion, the best Fringe production I’ve seen this year).
The small intimate theatre was a perfect setting for the one man show put on by Jay Nachman. My Dad Is Now Ready For His Spongebath, is an ode to Nachman’s father, who passed away after a fight with lung cancer.
The intensite begins from the moment you walk into the theatre. Soldiers with rifles and gas masks look you up and down right after Fringe volunteers take your ticket.
