Review: (Ottawa) My Second Smile (Fringe)

Celebration of Life
by Jim Murchison

Noah Spitzer is mature beyond his years. I guess that’s what happens when you face cancer at the age of 16, are told it’s probably nothing and then survive it. No that’s too weak. He celebrates it. This is not to say that he is happy he got cancer but he is a whirlwind of happiness now, not just a survivor.

He dances like the wind, he is hilarious in the way he portrays other people’s reaction to the big C. He also shows the sad side of loss but ultimately comes around to: we’re all going to die, live while you can. There are so many layers to this young man’s performance. He is a poster boy for life, not for cancer and he is joy unleashed on the stage.

I flat out loved this show! 

runtime: approximately 60 minutes with no intermission
My Second Smile is at the Ottawa Fringe
