Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
San Francisco juggler Aaron Jessup steps off the concrete plaza and on to the fringe stage in a one-man show that recalls his coming-of-age as a second-generation street performer.
The autobiographical show allows Jessup to combine a smidgeon of improv comedy and a lot of actual acting with some tricks that should impress even audiences who’d rather drink shoe polish than watch a busker. A glow-in-the-dark juggling sequence is worth the admission to the hour-long show.
The heart of the story, however, is the bittersweet bond Jessup forms with a childhood rival. There’s plenty of pathos to go along with the flying bowling pins.
— Bartley Kives
A time-travelling European adventure, a one-man, multi-character laugh riot that goes from hilarious to heartbreaking and back again, Flying Dreams weaves the worlds of theatre, vaudeville and busking. Drawing from Jessup's life as a second-generation street performer. The Fresno Bee voted Flying Dreams one of the top "hits not to miss" of the Rogue Festival.
"People can't stop raving about this show!" - Dixie Mills, Producer of the Santa Cruz Fringe
