Fringe 2015: I Liked You Better Online – Bakehouse Theatre – 3.5K

The pretentious persona to pick up a potential partner is definitely the theme. I Liked You Better Online is the tale of the romance over technology. It is an absolute comedy that takes the show and the characters we play online to enhance our-not-very-interesting-selves.

Emerging from the darkness with great enthusiasm, Luke McMahon who played Steve greeted the audience with the consistent energy that he portrayed throughout the performance. Chloe, played by Lara Schwedt matched that, but also added this girl next door charm that suited the character very well.

The show had a captivating flow that sets it apart from others, with scenes that are reminiscent to sitcoms. The music score can be improved, but is still very appropriate. They have made use of the performance area in quite an amusing way that will give you a feel of you are in the scenes.


The show revolves around this technological wonder, Tinder, so if you don’t have a generic concept of what this mobile application is about, it is best to do your research beforehand as just to be able to relate a little bit better. Everyone seems to be familiar with it, or maybe they use it in a daily basis. But worry not; they’ll give you a crash course if you haven’t got time.

They have entertained since the 9th, and it will end on the 14th of March at Bakehouse Theatre in Angas Street, Adelaide. Definitely something that will make you think that some things can be better online.
