    This show raises an interesting question: how did it earn a place in this year’s Fringefest? The parodies were pointless, and many of the skits had no relationship with the story of Annie.

      This show is fun and creative. Each skit the cast changes the roles they are playing resulting in some very funny situations, like a grown man with red hair and a goatee and a mustache playing the most adorable Annie of the all. The skits loosely follow the story of Annie but in different genres, it’s mind bending, gender bending, entertaing and very funny.

    Very funny. The WWE section was my favorite. If you like to see classic stories bent, twisted, and used in different ways, this show is a wonderful choice.
