Fringe Review: Bubble Show for Adults Only


Presented by Kurt Murray
Reviewed 16 February 2018

Bubble Show for Adults Only is titled that way for good reason as it presents the R-rated version of bubble blowing that you never played in preschool.

This is definitely the naughtiest bubble show you will probably ever encounter as our two performers find themselves in some rather compromising positions mixed in with slippery soap and loads of bouncing bubbles. Our female lead especially shows off some rather impressive flexibility, combined with her impressive bubble-blowing talents. From legs behind her head to legs up in the air – she has incredible levels of flexibility while also maintaining enough stability to be a platform on which bubbles can be blown on.

This bubble show is definitely for those who want to see something slightly different as it holds the attributes of not only cabaret and theatre, but also comedy and physical theatre, combined with the performer’s extraordinary bubble-blowing talents. This show has got it all and most audience members will find something they like within its varied features (especially those who enjoy a bit of playful nudity and sexual humour).

The show also presents interpretations of relationship dilemmas (some of a more personal nature than others), and incorporates the impressive bubble blowing techniques into these routines. Bubble Show for Adults Only provides an individual and exciting portrayal of some of life’s events, combined with a huge amount of soapy water and giant bubbles (did we mention the nudity?).

Be aware as well – these performers love audience involvement, and you may find yourself being brought up on-stage to be placed on the receiving end of a bubbly, soapy strip-tease!

A humorous and sexy take on the art of bubble blowing that will have the audience cheering in their seats, Bubble Show for Adults Only is a fun night out for all (well, those over 18).
