…like nobody’s watching

Tom Hanks had Wilson. Jake Simonds has Spalding. Inspired by survival-in-isolation cinema and the monologues of Spalding Gray (ā€œSwimming to Cambodia,” Wooster Group), …like nobody’s watching is a funny show about loneliness.

                This seems to start out as a pleasant ramble. And by that I do not mean that it drifts. Far from it.

                It’s got the feel of being taken along on an easy hike through places you sort of know about, but by someone who knows them well. But someone who lets you do the discovering by yourself.

                It seems simple and simply delivered, but as the trek continues, interesting threads surface, and the theme of loneliness takes shape, not in an angst-ridden painful way but, strangely enough, in what feels to be a loving way. There is cleverness. An amicable, slightly smiling cleverness. Not an aggressive look-at-me cleverness.

                By the end of the show the ramble through sometimes thoughtful, sometimes silly, sometimes awkward, and sometimes outrightly goofy moments has led to a depth that can be almost hard to explain out loud but that you’ve discovered by yourself.

                Great show.

                And in the best Fringe tradition I can genuinely say – “I wasn’t expecting that!”

                What a fun show! I laughed until I cracked. I wish I could afford to see it again. My hobby is seeing this guy. So wet! One could say almost too wet. I was weary with love by the end of the show.
