Fractals

Fractals written and performed by Krista White follows Geraldine and her muse and editor, a cab driver. Using music and a verbal canvas to paint a humorous and insightful look at the moments or fractals that make us who we are, White has created a solid work. This is well worth the time and travel to see.***** – DF

Band With No Name

Band With No Name was highly entertaining. Frank James with his band mates, called ELASTO AND THE RUBBER BAND, (They were named from a basket this Wednesday afternoon.) cajoled the crowd with Springsteen, Blue Oyster Cult, and The Eagles, all after learning which songs and how to arrange them a few minutes prior. (Again…drawn from a basket!) A few gaffs occurred, but considering the time span it was a good show.**** – DF

Crippled

Be prepared to experience a flurry of emotions. In CRIPPLED, written by Paul David Power, nothing is held back when sharing a story of loss, discrimination and redemption. Using simple lighting and sound, the actors move parts of the bare bones set to show shifts in time. It is incredibly effective. This is honest storytelling at its best. You will cringe. You will smile. You will cry; and you will laugh through the tears. – ***** AK

The Event

The Event is a one-person piece written by John Clancy and performed by Bob Paisley. He is at times preachy, his observations political and sociological; but they are also dead on when one considers our current political climate. Stepping in and out of the light and lowering his voice, he engages the audience and taunts the technicians. You will sit in awe, wondering how he remembers every line and gesture. The piece is not only original, it is thoroughly entertaining.**** – AK
