S#!t I'm in Love with You again at Fringe

Rachelle Elie from Ottowa, Ontario presented S#!t I'm in Love with You Again with musical accompaniment by Luke Jackson on acoustic guitar. Rachelle spoke about her mother's care free attitudes about sex and then about her own early love life. Each stage off her love life was accompanied by an original song. The stage was set up with a glitter curtain and plenty of clothes for costume changes during the show.

When she found the man of her dreams she sang about the myriad of details of their married life. Things eventually slid south and affection turned to loathing. The honesty in this part of the show rang true as being absolutely sincere. The couple separated and went their own ways, but in time, they got together and discovered that there was still a spark despite their differences, thus the title of the show. I kept wondering about Luke. Was he the husband she was singing about or was he a lover? Unfortunately he was just a side note in her story, meant to be ignored except for his music.

I'll give the show 5 out of 10 feather boas.
