Fringe 2017 - Returning Favorite - Allison Broeren
Allison Broeren (2007 Top 20) of
La Vie Theatre - Debacle: Stories of Life’s Ultimate Fiascos!
Acclaimed storytellers Allison and Jason reveal how their seemingly innocent choices lead them astray into some of life's craziest blunders from evil cat sitting, dirty ice cream, drug dens and so much more!
I’ve enjoyed Allison’s spoken word/storytelling prowess ever since her first Fringe show back in 2007. Her preview back then was enough to pique my interest and get her on my Top 20 list and her show delivered on that promise, as has every other Fringe show she’s done that I’ve seen since, so why wouldn’t I sign up for more? She’s also a leader in the spoken word/storytelling community, hosting open mics and shepherding new artists into the field. She’s teaming up this Fringe with Jason Schommer. (I’m not familiar with Jason, but if Allison’s partnering with him, he’s bound to be equally good.)
And here's some handy links to the full list of pre-Fringe top 10, and 11-20, the rest of the 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!
