Review: 'Animals out of Paper'


Theatre Undeclared, Burnsville, MN

2.5 stars

Theatre on the Square: Main Stage. Those who think the

Fringe's one-hour time limit is a hindrance to ambition should see this show.

This talented group of young players from the Twin Cities manages to pack an

entire musical into 60 minutes. It's unwieldy and dangerously close to being a

burst-into-song version of Friends, but there's enough wit and self-parody

woven into this story set in a funky coffeehouse to allow for the clunking

bits. If you're looking for a novelty show, this may be it.

Friday, Aug. 27, 9 p.m.; Saturday, Aug.

28, 6 p.m.; Sunday, Aug. 29, 9 p.m.
