Many Folk in SoCal may not have been aware that reality as they know it has been in peril over the course of the year, however, both audience and critics have been enthusiastically stepping up to save it, in Cavort Theatre’s newest work ‘The Universe (101)’.
The show that features a totally original script and many magical and mental effects has wowed audiences and critics alike causing comparisons to be made to such stellar company as Steve Martin, The Marx Brothers, Mel Brooks, Abbot and Costello, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and Douglas Adams’ Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy! The show picked up the coveted Hollywood Fringe ‘Pick of the Fringe’ award, the ‘Encore Hollywood Producers’ Award’ in addition to receiving a ‘Double Sweet’ and ‘Audience Choice’ award from review site Better Lemons. The show also made the 2018 top ten shows to see in LA selected by Stage Raw!
The Universe (101) is brought to you by Cavort Theatre, an award-winning UK company and creator of the 5 Star Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe and London Horror festival spectacular ‘The Devil Without’.
