Shut UP, Emily Dickinson! (Review)

0 Comments · Thursday, May 30, 2013
We’ll never really know what kept Dickinson a prisoner in that upstairs room in Amherst, Massachusetts, but if you see this show you’ll have some insight into the kind of demons or gods that might have plagued her.  

Maps (Review)

Eight dancers perform on a bare stage at Know Theatre, backed by a large white projection screen on which simple animation (by Mam-Luft & Co.) plays out.

The FringeNext series of shows, now in its third year as an element of the Cincinnati Fringe, invites performances produced, created and performed by high school students.  

MixTape (Review)

This show's 100-percent family friendly content is a win-win for those looking for the theatrical equivalent of a cool glass of water on a hot summer Fringe night.  

Catalina (Review)

0 Comments · Thursday, May 30, 2013
Catalina is a lively take on history and on theater, puts 16th century events into a 21st century syntax and suggests that the woman's movement was bound to come.

This inventive show at the Art Academy is produced by North American New Opera Workshop of Cincinnati, comprised of current or past CCM Opera students.  

And the Rand Played On... aka The Hell with Edutainment, Let’s Have Fun! (Review)

0 Comments · Thursday, May 30, 2013
As most good theatre is, And the Rand Played On... is a cautionary romp, and the mirror it holds up sets off alarms.  

And All the Rest Is Junk Mail (Review)

0 Comments · Thursday, May 30, 2013
This spunky two-woman show explores communication of all kinds, as well as miscommunication, in a quirky, often farcical romp.  

Thou Shall Rot in Hell (Review)

This show is engaging and, most importantly, funny — and it’s clear that teenage actor/playwright Zak Kelly is a talent on the rise.   

Delicious

0 Comments · Thursday, June 7, 2012
Family-friendly Fringe shows aren’t common, but Psophonia brings a playful, even childlike romp to the Festival with Delicious. As frequent Cincy Fringe participants, the Houston-based, all-female modern dance company more often has focused on women’s issues. But as with their previous Fringe shows, Co-Artistic Directors Sonia Noriega and Sophia L. Torres once again go all out on eye-catching costumes, props and other visual elements in this series of brief vignettes.  

Bombus and Berrylinne (Recommended)

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 5, 2012
And now for something completely different, as the Monty Python guys used to say: Four Humors Theater, back for another year at the Cincinnati Fringe, brings a wholly different — and totally charming — piece for audiences of all ages, Bombus and Berrylinne.  

Nothing (Recommended)

1 Comment · Sunday, June 3, 2012
Nothing, Nic Balthazar’s piece about bullying, makes it U.S. premiere as Unity Productions’ Fringe production, presented at Know Theatre. A one-man show, the multimedia play uses video and music to move the story forward. Nothing mixes forms and does it well: one part engrossing stage drama and one part, documentary.   

Kiss Kiss Missiles: A Retrospectacle (Recommended)

0 Comments · Sunday, June 3, 2012
The most engaging of the three dances presented by The Space/Movement Project in Kiss Kiss Missiles: A Retrospectacle is the first, with all five of the company’s dancers barefoot and wearing costumes that could almost have come out of their everyday closets with a sash or a ribbon added for the stage. A dancer wearing a flaring red skirt and dark top appears in movement as slim and supple as pulled taffy.   

The Doppelganger Cometh and Overtaketh

0 Comments · Sunday, June 3, 2012
In her director’s notes for The Doppelganger Cometh and Overtaketh, Leah Strasser says, “We hope you find this play as funny as we do, because we still laugh every time we hear it.” If that was the goal of Strasser, who also plays a central role, and her colleagues who have announced the birth of Homegrown Theater, a new local company, I’m afraid I need to say “Better luck next time.”  

On Her Pillow: Too True Tales of Black Little White Girl

0 Comments · Saturday, June 2, 2012
Honour Pillow probably already knows that she’s going to have a tough time making you feel sorry for her when she takes the stage for her solo show at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Having spent the early part of her career as a runway model in New York, she bears a fine resemblance to Julia Roberts with Halle Berry’s complexion, and it’s that issue of racial identity that fuels the better part of this personal history and emotional travelogue.
