From Press Release
“* * * *…Evelyn Reese is funny. Damn funny.” – Winnipeg Sun ’08
“Highly recommended…a triumph of crazy charm and savvy sassiness.”
-Toronto Star ’06
By Susan Fischer
There’s no stopping Evelyn Reese. Everyone’s favourite Executive Secretary/party animal is taking it to the streets in a walking tour of the Bloor and Bathurst neighbourhood. Her previous Fringe hits – The Evelyn Reese Show and Evelyn Reese’s Family Room – built a following for Evelyn here in Toronto and across the Fringe circuit. Now that following can follow Evelyn down Bloor Street as she interacts with merchants and shoppers in the Annex – steps from Toronto Fringe headquarters.
If this rye ‘n-ginger-induced, chain-smoking divorcée of a certain age knew what guerrilla theatre was, that’s what she’d call her show. But labels mean nothing to Evelyn Reese. She just knows in her bones that if she takes people on a tour of Honest Ed’s, the Country Style Hungarian Restaurant, a bra-fitting boutique and other establishments, they’ll want to hear what she has to say. And they sure will – whether she’s telling stories or creating them on the spot in live and interactive encounters with innocent bystanders.
Everyone’s met an Evelyn Reese and at the end of the tour, you’ll know a little bit more about this enigma wrapped in hot-pants. And about all the gals she reminds you of.
