This show should simply not be missed. This is what Fringe is all about, folks, that thing you can’t see anywhere else.”

“…The evening soars from hilarity to poignancy to the grotesque and back again with an immediacy and honesty that at times seems impossible….”


“…An interpretive dance number between two men that sets out to make sense of 9/11 — broken into three separate movements of course — that ultimately reads like a love affair between Keaton and Chaplain on crack….”

“…That the whole thing feels like a jazz symphony made up on the spot by Duke, Miles, Coltrane and Fitzgerald. Yes, the members of the Wet The Hippo are that good….”

—Colin Mitchell, Bitter Lemons

“Somehow, Gilkey has managed to assemble the most unassuming yet mesmerizing group of people you’ve seen in Los Angeles. I left feeling more confused, inspired, fulfilled, curious and stunned then any live performance I’ve seen in a while.”
Aubrey Mozino, We Make Movies

ANONYMOUS says “loved it” · June 23, 2013
are you KIDDING ME? go see this show. it is why i go to live theater. the lack of what it has is why i RARELY enjoy live theater. WET THE HIPPO is why fringe exists. it makes you feel things you only feel when you’re desperately in love or finally heartbroken. Fearless. Vulnerable. Sensual. Watch this show and remember what living is. And then leave and go do it.
