But as much as Blackboxing is a metatheatrical parody aimed at its theater-making cohorts, it’s not necessary to have made or even seen a Fringe show to appreciate its heart and humor. Ritchey is completely invested in his character, and goes all out in performing over-the-top interpretive dance, original (terrible) songs, and enacting multiple characters from a radio play. His sense of timing is impeccable—he knows exactly how long to allow for audience reaction for his many “groaner” lines—and he’s remarkably good with dialects (it’s Travis’ one actual talent, apparently.) - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
