Despite a certain Chief of Staff’s attempt to get it shut down, The Bureau of Bat Shit Crazy has officially opened. And closed. We had a sold out run of the show, with expanded capacity at Studio-Leonard Beaulne for four of six shows.
This is what the reviewers had to say:
The Bureau of Bat Shit Crazy is a funny madcap piece, that is everything the Fringe Festival is about.

The Bureau of Bat Shit Crazy is filled with zany and fast-paced humour while also being one of the most technically ambitious shows at this year’s Fringe.
