What girl hasn't imagined her dream wedding? This girl, nominee for 2011 Canadian Comedy's Best One-Person, imagined a dream wedding...to herself. This high-energy solo comedy is funny, smart, and warm.
As its title suggests, ONEymoon is a one-woman send-up about a character so self-absorbed she decides to cut through the clutter of dating and relationships to marry herself. Christel Bartelse, the creator and star of this show, is a formidable, thoroughly entertaining performer with tremendous physical gifts at one point, she even tap dances. But, while her show hits some predictably funny and uncomfortable notes, it settles for an easy- listening ending, instead of trying to get at more provocative truths about ourselves and the others we (think) we want to be with. - David Hoppe
