2 Sugars, Room for Cream
Carolyn Pool and Shanan Custer's two-woman comedy enjoyed a sold-out run at last summer's Minnesota Fringe, with one online commenter avowing that the duo "charmed the pants off everyone in a three-mile radius" (not literally, we have to presume). Now the show returns for another go-round at Illusion Theater's Fresh Ink Series. Pool and Custer are indeed possessors of outsized charm and onstage chops; their show is composed of vignettes about things they find amusing, loosely tied together by caffeine ingestion. This was a hot ticket at the 2009 Fringe, earning an encore slot. Turn up at Illusion for some refreshing summertime funny-bone tickling (another online commenter termed Pool and Custer "classy, complicated, hysterical, beautiful ladies." We should all enjoy such good press). (Photo by Ballistik Coffee Boy)
