Strickland and MacDonald’s enthusiasm is contagious.
By Jean-Paul Fournier
As fringe performers, Paul Strickland and Erika MacDonald are simply masters of their craft.
From their opening song, the multi-talented duo energizes the crowd, and sets up the quirky and upbeat premise of the show, at the same time establishing their style of kooky and imaginative brand of humour. With catchy tunes, quirky visual effects, goofy sketches, wonderous wordplay, and even a well-timed PSA, the two guarantee to provide “the greatest performance of a travel guide to a place you cannot go”. And I would go as far as to say they provided “the greatest performance of a travel guide… period.” Yes, it is that good!
To be a part of an audience having this much fun is rejuvenating. Strickland and MacDonald’s enthusiasm is contagious, as they feed off the cheerful laughter of the crowd all the while rolling with the timing of the audience’s reactions. And just like their beautiful harmonies, their timing, their energy, and their delight in amusing a crowd is on point.
