Fringe 2019 Shows I Just Can’t Watch Right Now, but You Probably Should - part 1

Visitation - DangerVision Productions - Crane Theater

Description: Grief is not tidy or well behaved, nor is this show. This creative collaboration explores the grief experience from funny to poetic to painful by mixing performance and video projection

The More Information tab for this show’s page begins, “Loosely set in a funeral home…”

OK, I’m out.

Which is a shame, because there are a lot of writers and performers in this one who I admire the hell out of and who do great work.  A friend involved already helpfully warned me off, not because it’s bad, but because in my current state it’s way too much.

But a show that has writing by, among others, Heather Meyer, Gemma Irish, Sam Landman, Tyler Mills, and Rachel Teagle; and performers like Charles Numrich, Victoria Pyan, Ben Tallen, and Clarence Wethern - damn, I really want to see that.

So I recommend it for you.

Because I can’t right now.

First show - Thursday, August 1, 2019, 5:30pm, Crane Theater
