Film Flam

It sounds like the unpromising lead up to a punchline: What do you get when you combine a poet, a screenwriter, a novelist... and the Super Bowl? Read More | Comment »

Long Fringe Review: Akimbo Bubble Scuttle Ruckus

The latest project that improv group Da Foundry has forged is exactly what it sounds like: a nonsensical, irrelevant hullabaloo. In Akimbo Bubble Scuttle Ruckus, playwright Topping Haggerty strings together a mess of short sketches that, as we learn in the end, are all strangely linked. Read More | Comment »

Long Fringe Review: Drawing a Paycheck

Annie La Ganga always knows what I need. I show up to review Drawing a Paycheck without a pen and hallelujah, she has carefully rubber-banded stubby pencils to the programs, which ask silly questions about arts & crafts and terrible business ideas. Read More | Comment »

Long Fringe Review: Don't Go in the House

Sometimes the best theatre isn’t very, well, theatre-y. No dance numbers, no special effects, no cast of costumed characters invigorating a painstakingly constructed set. Maybe nothing more than a bit of audio-visual enhancement providing context for a single actor speaking on a plain stage. Read More | Comment »

Long Fringe Review: Southern Fried Chickie

Larry the Cable Guy has met his match in a busty, blond Tupelo, Mississippi princess. In her entertaining one-woman show Southern Fried Chickie, Christy McBrayer proves that she's become everything her daddy wanted her to be: a strong, beautiful woman who knows as much as any man and can still drink him under the table.

Long Fringe Review: 'Holier Than Thou'

If the second coming were to occur in 2012 America, how else would we determine who he or she is than with a reality television competition? That’s the hook of Holier Than Thou, which features seven performers (both onstage and via giant video talking heads) offering an oral history of their attempt to win the powers of the Messiah for a week.

Long Fringe Review: 'The Alien Baby Play'

The Alien Baby Play is a weird little play, but it’s a good one. Bethany (Kathleen Fletcher) plays a 15-month pregnant lady who’s invited an audience for the arrival of her extra-terrestrial offspring. Read More | Comment »

The Answer is ... Geek Bowl VI!

See, it's a part of that whole
Geeks Who Drink pub-quiz phenomenon,
where geeks who drink gather in pubs
in cities across the U.S. to try to outdo each other
with their vast knowledge of pop-culture trivia. Read More | Comment »

Back Home for the First Time

A keening wind. A whippoorwill. A midnight train whistle. Some things are just born with a lonesome sound – that high, plaintive tone full of longing. Hank Williams was born with it. And Jimmie Rodgers. And when Scotsman Duncan McLean flips on the vintage reel-to-reel recorder and you hear his countryman sing, you know Thomas Fraser was born with it, too. Read More | Comment »
