Last month, I saw 50 shows at the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, and wrote review of about half of those, but even with the combined efforts of OW's staff we only managed to cover 50% of the 100+ productions available. Thankfully, a few of the shows that slipped under our radar are being...

In my post-mortem wrap-up of the recently-concluded 2013 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, I neglected to mention the lifeblood of the festival: the volunteers. The Fringe's corps of volunteers is mostly amazing, dedicating thousands of man-hours each year to keep the event running smoothly. The only problem with volunteers is that there are never...

After fourteen days, hundreds of performances, and countless thousands of beers, the 22nd Annual Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival finally came to a close last night. My brain, butt, and liver are exhausted after this epic entertainment marathon, but I have just enough neurons left to share a few final thoughts on Orlando's largest-ever...

Fringe wrap-up: Schneider’s list

While we wait just a few short hours until the winners are announced in the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival’s first-ever official critics’ awards, Orlando Weekly has asked me to post a list of the top five shows I’ve seen. It makes for a harsh sample, since the work I was privileged to witness...

Fringe Review: Children in the Dark

We’ve all heard the cliché about our lives flashing in front of us just before we die. Well, Neutral Ground Ensemble from New Orleans takes that cliché and unwraps it, literally, by allowing four spirits to open the “boxes” of Bob’s life.

Fringe Review: Teaching Shakespeare

“All’s well that ends well,” wrote the Bard. And Keir Cutler’s one-act dramedy, Teaching Shakespeare, not only finishes with a flourish but also starts strongly on its way to becoming perhaps the best one-man show at this year’s Fringe.

Fringe Review: Ses-qui-cen-ten-ni-al – The Civil War Remembered

You don’t have to be a Civil War enthusiast to appreciate this historically influenced monologue by Storyteller “Country Joe” Rosier. And one thing’s for sure: There’s no lack of detail in Rosier’s storytelling.

Fringe Review: Little Miss Fringe Festival

I started watching Dance Moms because Toddlers & Tiaras looked too creepy. Then Dance Moms got too ugly, so I switched to … um, Toddlers & Tiaras. Now I’ve seen Little Miss Fringe Festival, and I’m thinking I should probably be on a list somewhere. Jeff Jones plays our host, a sleazy kids’-pageant impresario who’s sort of like Marcus...

Fringe Review: Circus Arts: An Aerial and Acrobatic Adventure

This dizzying twirlabout is hardly an adventure. The show started off slow and never quite reached a crescendo. The underlying theme of the production was mankind’s inherent desire to fly. Aerial silks were the primary means of conveying flight and the aerial artists seemed fairly skilled. The problem lies with the venue. Although the...
