Underbelly

Reviewed By: Justin Olynyk

July 26 2012

In Underbelly, Jayson McDonald performs 20 short poems in the style of poet/critic William S. Burroughs, who travelled across America in the 1950s and 1960s commenting on the decline of his country. McDonald performs these poems in a quiet, detached manner, further suggesting that he is disillusioned with what is happening in America. Like good performance poetry, this material is funny, clever and makes you think at the same time. However, the gunfighter poems were probably the weakest parts of the show although I realized he was trying to tackle America’s obsession with heroes who save the day. Still, Underbelly is a top notch Fringe show that is definitely worth seeing.
