PW Picks Your Shows, and SHAMELESS PLUG for “Boat Hole”

Posted September 1st, 2010

J. Cooper Robb is on Live Arts and Philly Fringe Festival beat for Philadelphia Weekly, picking 10 don’t-miss shows, including, among others, CHICKEN, TAKES, and Festival editor emeritus Josh McIlvain’s show Boat Hole. On Josh, Robb writes:

“When Josh McIlvain isn’t editing the official Live Arts Festival/Philly Fringe guide (a Herculean task), he’s a frequently produced playwright; and 15 of his funniest short plays (each runs between one and 10 minutes) are rounded up in Boat Hole (Sept. 15-18). The briefly met characters involve a pair of ordinary guys who see a career opportunity in terrorism and orcas who bicker over performing tricks for tourists.”

Yay, go Josh! We miss you, buddy!
