A year ago, Know Theatre announced a
strategic plan to shift away from being a traditional company offering
annual seasons. Instead, Know announces programming on a rolling basis.
That led to a lighter-than-expected stretch in 2012 and 2013, which
nonetheless featured several excellent productions.
There are just a few days left for the
2013 Cincinnati Fringe, our annual celebration of weirdness and
creativity, produced by Know Theatre. It’s over on Saturday evening (the
final party is at 10:30 p.m. at the Jackson Street theater’s
Underground Bar), but there’s still time to catch several productions.
A note in the program says that Ron “wanted to deter his
students from the allure of totalitarianism.” My impression is that
explanation was merely an excuse he gave one student’s parent. Whatever
Ron’s original pedagogical motives were, those motives dissolve with his
innocence as he takes on the lascivious appeal of power.
