Cincy Fringe Concludes This Weekend

Two more nights of creative theater at Know — two more nights!

You've probably heard by now that the ninth annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival has been underway for the past week or so. If not, you clearly didn't come across CityBeat's Cincy Fringe hub, where we've been collecting previews, reviews and ongoing coverage of the fest since even before Day 1. Since you only have two more nights to enjoy the final few productions, here's a rundown of everything we know: Peruse CityBeat's Cincy Fringe hub here, where you'll find reviews of all 32 performances. Check out the official Fringe Festival guide here, where you'll also find a schedule that includes Friday and Saturday night's final shows. “Marching Through the 2012 Fringe,” CityBeat issue of June 6. Check out what people are saying about @CincyFringe on Twitter here. And here's a little something on Homegrown Theatre, a company created by native Cincinnatians and is performing The Doppelganger Cometh and Overtaketh at the Emery Theater tonight and Saturday night.
 
 

Delicious

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.  

Marching Through the 2012 Fringe

1 Comment · Wednesday, June 6, 2012
As CityBeat’s June 6 issue goes to press, the 2012 Cincinnati Fringe Festival is about half over. All 29 shows have opened and a few have concluded their runs. You still have several chances to see some great shows before the Fringe concludes on Saturday.   

Bombus and Berrylinne (Recommended)

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.  

The Mistakes Madeline Made (Recommended)

0 Comments · Saturday, June 2, 2012
The mistakes Madeline made, which give title to this 75-minute excursion into wanton lack of bathing and job despair, are exactly those our heroine Edna adopts as her personal route to coming of age and meeting life on its own terms. A how-do-we-get-grown-up story seems appropriate for the annual intern project at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC), this year the work of five actors, directed by fellow intern Jenny Estill.   

It's Very Fringy in Here … Hello? Hello?

CityBeat's hub for Cincinnati Fringe Festival coverage, including reviews of first performances

The Cincinnati Fringe Festival is in full effect, and CityBeat's intrepid team of reviewers is on the scene. Check back early and often for reviews of all 32 performances, nearly all of which will have their first performance reviewed. You'll be completely in the know for this weekend's Fringy festivities.  

The Doppelganger Cometh and Overtaketh

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.”  

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.   

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.
