A multimedia mish-mash of 1940s radio play and live graphic novel, Intergalactic Nemesis is a lot of fun, but boy, does it need an edit.
Star rating: **
Venue: Pleasance Courtyard (Venue 33)
Aiming to accomplish over 90 minutes what most Fringe shows do in an hour, the show takes a few good ideas and overloads them with convoluted plotting and unnecessary references (Chico and Harpo Marx make a completely superfluous cameo).
You’ll also need have seen previous instalments to get the most out of it – the plot mostly stands on its own, but the grand finale is a big fat “huh?” without prior context.
Until 29 August. Today 2:20pm.
