Cut to 1969, the Summer of Love and Woodstock. Well, almost. This Philadelphia dance company offers a modern homage to Woodstock or — according to the program notes — what the people listening to the concert might have been doing in the fields during those three days that defined an era.

Arienette, central character in the interest-compelling production Names, is a young girl beset by demons, not unlike a character in an old-fashioned story.

Night Walkers

Homegrown Theater (Cincinnati)

Theater is a medium that allows metaphor to really breathe, and Elizabeth Harris’ play does just that. The well-established Cincinnati playwright’s collaboration with Homegrown Theater proves to be a provocative, cerebral and often painful experience.

Tolstoy’s famous opening line to Anna Karenina proposes that all happy families are alike, while each unhappy family is miserable in its own way. Patchwork’s entry for the 2014 Fringe, Bebe, proves the opposite can also be true.
