“Postcards from the Fringe” Part Three
June 24th, 2012 by Wayne Current
The Fringe festival closes today. Congratulations to all the volunteers, artists, and organizers for making it such a success! For those of you who still want to catch a show, it’s not too late. Along with the regularly scheduled shows, at 9:00 p.m.tonight there will be a bonus show for the productions that sold the most tickets during the first four days of the festival. Here’s a link to this years Best in Fest winners!
Of the winners, I particularly enjoyed Wanderlust by Martin Dockery. Dockery is a compelling story teller who tells tales from his travels in West Africa. It’s funny, energetic and intelligent. Well worth seeing.
I was also very impressed with Vernus says SURPRISE created by Ken Godmere. Choreographed to a soundscape, Godmere plays an Octogenarian in search of a gift for his grand daughter. Godmere’s timing is impeccable. Vernus is unquestionably a technically well executed production.
Yesterday, I finally got around to seeing Hip-Hop Shakespeare by Melanie Karin, David Benedict Brown. I’m glad I went. Both Karin and Brown know their hip-hop and their shakespeare very well. If you are into either check this one out today at 4:30 p.m. or when it goes on tour!
Tonight is your last chance to catch some shows! Make it happen!
