OK, so there’s not much about Fidel Castro or even Internet dating in this grab bag of original songs by talented Winnipegger Adi Sara Kreindler. The singer/songwriter sits behind an electric piano in a sparkly black dress and offers up a few lines of fringe-ish patter between her wide-ranging musical numbers, but comedy is not her forte.
It ain’t theatre, either.
But this former university prof has a strong voice, a lovely face, and clever lyrics — everything from Medusa’s problems meeting nice men to a little tango number about academia called Sponsoria — and somehow she makes the decidedly old-fashioned 50-minute set appealing.
— Margo Goodhand
From the official Fringe program:
With her wicked wit and piano stylings, Adi Sara will remind you of Tom Lehrer, only prettier.
This Winnipeg original has been leaving a trail of standing ovations.
Join her for a look at postmodern love, the energy crisis, bourgeois hypocrisy and unusual dietary experiments.
PLUS: sultry jazz, haunting ballads, stirring marching songs, crime, passion and more!
