Boys Taste Better with Nutella, immediately the title of this show caught my attention. Firstly because I am obsessed with Nutella and EVERYTHING is better than it. And secondly boys and Nutella, what girl doesn’t want to see that combination.
A story of two best friends, Aggy and Frederick, who have an obsession for eating. It seems that when something goes wrong in their lives they will turn to food, don’t we all. Aggy has a long history of falling for the wrong guy and getting her heart broken. Where is Frederick seems to fall in love with men on the Internet and that always seems to go wrong too. I quickly came to realise I would not be seeing any men being dipped in Nutella, but a story of two best friends struggling with food obsessions.
The best friend duo was fun, energetic and really entertaining when on stage. At times I felt a little lost on where the story line was going, but at the end they did well in tying it all in together. The moral of the story, eating makes you happy temporarily, but best friends are there for life.
