This Life Chose Me: A Ninja Musical (Reviews)

“(This Life Chose Me: A Ninja Musical) is quite an entertaining one-hour show, which uses the sentimentality of musicals to parody the violent nature of ninjas. Wilbert’s voice and lyrics are outstandingly witty, yet her strength was in the non-musical scenes. Her improvisation and acting skills had the audience laughing throughout every line.

“Katie Wilbert’s concept of a one-woman ninja musical is certainly compelling and thoroughly deserves further exploration… Wilbert’s humor has a Saturday Night Live sensibility.

Every once in a while you meet a real life ninja, one who boasts such talents, and Katie Wilbert is one such ninja. See her show, “This Life Chose Me: A Ninja Musical” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It’s what Jesus and Will Ferrell would do.”

Out of 2871 shows performed by 24,107 artists, Katie Wilbert and her show, “This Life Chose Me: A Ninja Musical,” were chosen as one of the Fringe Top Picks by Whats On Stage. Only 46 other shows were mentioned.

“This Life Chose Me: A Ninja Musical” is lots. It is charming, funny, and engaging. The songs are good! If there were an award for best solo pieces, I suspect this show would have made the nominations list!
