Cincinnati Reggae/Soul greats The Pinstripes celebrate their 10th anniversary and announce a pull-back from live shows. Plus, 'Mistaken for Strangers' (featuring the Cincy natives of The National) opens locally, The Harlequins prep live album, Automagik returns and Serenity Fisher sings in the name of love.
The newest play from creative team Serenity Fisher and Robin O’Neal Kissel is a whirlwind of new vocabulary words (say zoetropic five times fast); new professions (flavor listener) and new problems (an entire galaxy is about to be devoured/obliterated by a scary instellar storm, aka the vortex).
There is no question that Serenity Fisher has a staggering amount of talent: She plays magnificently, sings well, writes smoothly in rhyme and coins clever inversions of phrases. But this is a poorly formed and indulgent exercise that, like a Stradivarius with only one string, plays the same light note throughout.
