A contemporary Vaudeville routine with ukulele, puppets, mutlti-media and gangster rap presented by the “Gruesome Twosome” Canada’s youngest drug cartel..
Legoland has been performed in Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, New York, Bellingham, Seattle and L.A.
“Wrestling is real. It’s the world that’s set up.” That’s just one of the bon mots issuing forth in Jacob Richmond’s killer-smart script. Two Edward Goreyesque children pop to life in the persons of Penny and Ezra Lamb… With a smirking deadpan worthy of Kafka, Amitai Marmorstein and Celine Stubel deliver a true gift to the Fringe circuit.” -Michael Harris, The Globe and Mail
“This clever company from Victoria takes a strange script by Jacob Richmond, casts it perfectly and presents the resulting carnival of kookiness with such assurance that Legoland is one of this Fringe’s must-see events.” -Peter Birnie, Vancouver Sun
“ …warm, funny and unexpectedly poignant… Kudos to playwright/director Jacob Richmond for a story that is powerfully witty, moving and wise.” -Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star
“Jacob Richmond’s comedy Legoland is a sort of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for teenagers… the braininess and original touches in Richmond’s script — combined with superior acting and direction — make this one well worth seeking out.” -Adrian Chamberlain, Times-Colonist
