Fringe 2017 - Top 20 - #19 - Stranger
Memory, history, text and ritual entangle three strangers in a sprawling, modern epic, summoning the immense joy, messiness and struggle of being seen at the intersection of race and faith as Jews of Color.
Intelligent explorations of religion are always a draw for me. Featuring artists of color is another plus. And one of my co-workers in the Guthrie Theater box office is the writer/producer on the piece. There’s a video clip on their Fringe page (warning, it loads and starts playing automatically, so scroll down and open up the More Information section to actually watch the thing.)
(Random shout-outs: two other religion-focused shows that nearly made the cut - Good Friday: Round One, and Katie Versus The Devils; also another Fringe show from a fellow co-worker in the box office - Buffy The Bedbug Slayer)
And here's some handy links to the full list of pre-Fringe top 10, and 11-20, returning favorites, and all the random shout outs in these Top 10/Top 20 posts - links all gathered in a single list to take you to fuller posts and Fringe pages. Enjoy!
