Nik Rabinowitz has just turned forty, and is on the verge of a midlife crisis. Except that apparently forty is the new thirty, so now he’s not sure when to have the crisis, which is a crisis in itself. Also, his wife has just had their third baby – so really, he can’t have a midlife crisis – there’s no time. In the meantime, while he’s figuring all this out, he’s decided that instead of buying a Ferrari and abandoning his family, he’s going to put on a new one man show – Fortyfied.
Fortyfied explores a variety of subjects. There will be stories, there will be accents and – it will be funny, which is all you really have to know. Historically speaking, most of you will enjoy it very much, a small minority will hate it, and yet another small minority will love it so much you’ll want to give a standing ovation but feel too awkward to do so. To the latter, we urge you to overcome your fears before attending the show, remember – standing ovations don’t start themselves.
Fortyfied. It’s a pun, or a spelling error – depending on your worldview. Either way, it’s on at The Baxter from December 6th to January 14th.
