Fringe review: Few rough Edges

Show captures youth in song.

by

The song cycle Edges presents four young people on the brink of adulthood, all searching for a place in the world. They sing about familiar problems such as the fear of commitment and the need to belong while also standing out, as well as less run-of-the-mill plights like abusive relationships and parental abandonment. The songs are a good mix of earnest and comic, with “In Short “, a darkly humorous tale of the consequences of love gone wrong as a particular standout. However, the music is both clever and tricky, and all of performers are unfortunately forced at times to sing out of their ranges. But these four outstanding actors and their talented accompanists are great examples of our city’s theatre up-and-comers.
