Fringe Day 1 - Down and Dirty

Best Thing We Saw Yesterday

Phi Alpha Gamma - Dan Bernitt - Rarig Xperimental Theater

5 stars - Very Highly Recommended

Funny, vivid, poetic, scary, gorgeous. Yesterday’s most emotionally rich and satisfying experience.

This is one I really want to see again before it closes.

Next performance - Tuesday, August 5th, 10pm

A Damn Close Second

Shift - Jonas Goslow - Bryant Lake Bowl

5 stars - Very Highly Recommended

Multiple plotlines that collide and intertwine in unexpected ways, an intellectual jigsaw puzzle full of humor, heartache and smart dialogue

Another one I want to see again.

Next performance - Saturday, August 2nd, 4pm

A Helluva Lot of Fun

Attack of the Big Angry Booty - Traveling Kurkendaal Productions - Interact Center

4-1/2 stars - Very Highly Recommended

More of Les’ signature style of storytelling - mischievous, inviting, full of heart.

Next performance - Saturday, August 2nd, 2:30pm

A Compelling Experiment

Dandelion - Onomatopoeia Productions - Minneapolis Theater Garage

3 Stars - Recommended

A teenage boy’s fascinating dysfunctional cardboard world, a new script and several performances full of promise

Next Performance - Sunday, August 3rd, 4pm

Full reviews to follow shortly. But I wanted to get the word out...
