Off The Rails: Putting your perfect on pause
Part conversation, part performance, and all heart, “Off The Rails” is a hilarious, interactive look at humbly facing the unexpected, difficult, and absurd moments in our lives. Using stories and comedy, Tami turns a mirror on her Type-A, well-planned, people-pleasing tendencies to remind us that in those moments when we’re holding on tight, the best way forward may be to just let go.
ORLANDO SENTINAL REVIEW:
‘Off the Rails’ is on the money
Orlando Fringe Festival reviews MATTHEW J. PALM
May 19, 2022
Female storytellers abound at the Orlando Fringe Festival, and Tami Evans ranks among the finest.
In “Off the Rails” (Green venue, 60 minutes, highly recommended), Evans uses a fateful night with a vibrant friend to look at what happens when life doesn’t go according to plan.
“Have you ever had a friend who makes your life better but a little worse at the same time?” she asks before launching into the tale of a harrowing late-night journey home on the New York City subway — with detours into how she accidentally became a barber, why her school production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” was particularly memorable and other anecdotes comical and emotional.
As directed by Steve Berglund, Evans knows how to build a story to a satisfying conclusion and has a way with details to quickly depict a time frame — a Samsung flip phone, Nancy Reagan.
“Off the Rails” is a highly engaging show with a performer who makes the audience feel like her friends.
“Fun, Funny, and Full of Heart.”
“Off The Rails is a theatrical ride you want to take!”
“This is soul medicine for our times.”
“Thought-provoking. Real. But most of all, funny.”
“Funny, poignant, fulfilling.”
“For one hour, I could forget about the problems of the world and be entranced by a life a story told humorously and masterfully.”
