I’ve got news for Tiffany Anne Price: she’s not really a cat lady. “Cat lady” connotes eccentric recluse and pungent odors. But Price — who has only four cats — is outgoing, charming and chatty. She reminds you instantly of the zany, very loud friend you had in high school that was frequently attracting way too much attention to your lunch table and failing miserably in her attempts to impress cute boys. With a mega-watt smile, a massive amount of energy, Price has a treasure trove of awkward anecdotes that she’s eager to share.
A one-woman show in the 2013 Cincy Fringe, Confessions of a Cat Lady (with a side of crazy), is a quirky blend of theater and stand-up comedy.
Confessions, directed by Kimleigh Smith, moves at a frantic pace, kept afloat by sheer enthusiasm. For the most part, Price’s superhuman energy level is more than enough to power the show. But there are moments throughout when she seems tired and just a tad sloppy for comedy.
Confessions of a Cat Lady is a high-speed Fringe experience — a weird, wild, very funny night of theater. The show's final performance is 9 p.m. Saturday.
