Dino World offered yet another take on Jurassic Park at Fringe.

The wacky love child of a certain Jurassic-themed-park, and a certain Chocolate-themed-factory, Dino World gives a one of a kind tour of the prehistoric past. When the dark secret behind these dinosaurs is revealed, it’s eat or be eaten in this original parody musical.

Although I was ready to root for the nerdy kid who loves dinosaurs, the show lost me with the coming of age song about needing to shave. It might have mad sense for the kid, but the same song uses sung by other more mature characters as well. I liked the sexy but unfeeling lawyer. Dinosaurs were portrayed by dancers dressed as if for burlesque. Although I'm very familiar with the source material the show left me confused. I steered several friends clear of the show i the large orange venue, so I felt, that I did my duty. 

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
