Review On She Kills Monsters

Jim Blanchette


This ensemble loves the material and each other. They commit to this marvelous script and their tenacity pays off. The women of this company constitute one of the strongest female ensembles I’ve seen at Fringe. Leading the charge is Vivi Thai, her beautiful transition between awkward role-playing newb to impassioned adventurer is measured and perfect. Susannah Snowden-Ifft, as the perky and adorkable Tilly, expertly tackles the tricky role of geeky sister and fantasy heroine. The core relationship between Vivi Thai and Susannah Snowden-Ifft is potent and real, exactly what the show needs to make us care about the characters in both the real and the fantasy world.

This is a fun and surprisingly touching evening of theatre.
