Thanks to the recently finished Fringe Festival, I’ve seen more than my fair share of out-there cabarets in recent weeks, featuring everything from tap-dancing to drunken improv. Davis Gaines, Orlando ex-pat and long-running star of Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera, arrives at The Abbey this weekend with Double Standards, a straightforward reminder of the artform’s...

Donating_Sperm_To_My_Sisters_Wife.JPG

As a “liberal Southern road comic” discussing hot-button topics like lesbianism, abortion, the metric system, and ketchup on eggs, Stewart Huff is used to having punches thrown at him in redneck bars across the Bible Belt (which apparently extends from New England to California, with atheistic holes in NYC and LA).

Orlando Fringe Review: Paisley Tippy-Toes
