    REVIEWS THEATRE DANCE

    The blazing heat of the Present Company's uncooled Theatorium made Paul Scott Goodman's "Him & Her" a challenge to observe. What a shame: Goodman's musical two-hander, while imperfect, was one Fringe show crying out for maximum audience comfort, because Goodman, who appeared in the piece's first half ...
