About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: An unromantic feel good comedy in one act. A hapless unromantic with an immediate urge toward the afterlife; a desperate bank robber with nebulous ties to the underworld; and Grandma Betty with limitless Jersey-style homespun wisdomisms ... It’s New Canula.

Disappointing, Overrated

See it if seeing just a seedling of a good idea is all you need to enjoy your night. The script is way too repetitive and utterly predictable.

Don't see it if you like self-indulgent scripts and horribly mismatched actors playing alongside each other.

Entertaining, Quirky, Funny, Simple, Heartwarming

See it if you have an affection for all things John Wayne, and are looking for a feel-good laugh.

Don't see it if you're trying to find a "high-art," "sophisticated" piece of work.

August 13th, 2016

"For such a relatively short show, 'New Canula' provides a lot of laughs. Dark comedy is the name of the game, and both Simpson and actor/writer Cremeans undoubtedly have a strong talent for it...Tension quickly fizzles out in the middle portion...With exposition and character development often done through telling rather than showing. Still, the actors are both funny enough to maintain the audience’s attention until the show reaches its hilarious, yet nail-biting, climax."

For a previous production

"A classic double act, but with an absurdist philosophical twist you never saw in Abbott and Costello…The repartee and comic timing are delightful, as tough guy and straight man Bull feeds set-ups to banana-man loser J Dubbs, who responds with snappy, self-effacing one-liners…Don’t miss this provocative blast from the comic past. 'New Canula' is a thinking-person’s hour of gallows humor and wisecracks…I highly recommend it."
