THE SURPRISE AND LEILA LIVE are fresh from The Toronto Fringe Next Stage Festival where both shows played to rave reviews!Ginger is throwing a surprise party and she needs your help. That’s where YOU come in. Literally! The Surprise is a hilarious clown-based immersive experience that’s guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Who’s invited? Who’s the guest of honour? You have to come and find out. There will be cake! From the creator and performer of Fringe hits Chaotica, ONEymoon, and All KIDding Aside. “Bartelse is charming and funny” Mooney on Theatre “Bartelse, whatever outfit she’s wearing, is a joy to watch. The Surprise lives up to it’s title. NNNN!” NOW Toronto
This 30-minute character-based blast of zany high-energy fun introduces us to Leila, a shamelessly self-obsessed Iranian woman living in Toronto who loves to text and sing and live her best life, but is as naive about relationships as she is stubbornly confident in her own amazingness. Sporting a colourful headscarf, an awesome tiger-print outfit and a full beard, the mysterious performer behind the act (Izad Etemadi) blends over-the-top storytelling, comic cover songs and running punny gags into a laugh-filled tale about Leila befriending an Instagram celebrity and attending a gala at Casa Loma. Part of the plot involves returning free samples, but this sample-sized show leaves you wanting more Leila!” NOW Magazine.
