  1. Johnny Boy came to “life” with the help of three magnificent singers/actors! A must see.

  2. I haven’t heard many people talking about this show, and that’s a shame! I loved every second of The Ballad of Johnny Boy. This trio of talented musicians and actors was absolutely fantastic. Perfect comedic timing, a concept I’ve yet to encounter (in 19 years of Fringing), buckets of energy, and top-notch acting in what’s ultimately a heartwarming tale told in the most hilarious way. Do not miss this!

  3. Great musical piece by these guys! Packed with original music and wonderful harmonies, the show delivers a touching story that many will be able to relate and shine a light on. Wonderful!
