Fresh from its wild success at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Maggie Gallant’s hilarious, endlessly surprising “Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower” comes to HPT September 5 – October 5.
In their five-star review the CBC said, “As a performer, Gallant sparkles like the Eiffel Tower’s light show. She’s energy and presence personified; warm and quick-witted and completely present. Love for life—and for Freddie Mercury—radiates off of her.” The Winnipeg Free Press called it “captivating. full of twists and turns.” In a second review “festival favorites” review, the CBC said “Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower is superb storytelling, but with a vibrancy and positivity that will brighten anyone’s day, like a long cold drink on a hot Fringe afternoon.”
