Kerry Ipema, the Brooklyn, N.Y. actor/writer behind the hit One Woman Sex and the City (2016) returns to the Fringe with another stellar parody show, this time a rollicking two-hander performed with fellow New York writer/comedian KK Apple.
This time out, Ipema and Apple skewer the (mostly faked) ecstasy and absurdity of chick flicks, reenacting Titanic, Pretty Woman, Beaches, The Notebook, Legally Blonde, and Dirty Dancing in a hilarious, high-energy 60-minute show. Co-written by Ipema and TJ Dawe, this comedy comes from a place of love, mocking the ridiculous (and usually written by a man) rom-com tropes and not the chicks who love these flicks — with some sharp social commentary on the side.
While the tight-and-bright script provides a laugh a minute, it’s Ipema and Apple’s skills as physical comedians, singers and dancers that really make it shine. (Ipema’s Rose from Titantic, in particular, is a true treasure.) A smile will not leave your face the entire time.
