Last weekend’s “Come Out With Pride” parade and associated events were a fabulous celebration for Orlando’s GLBT community, and/or a huge traffic headache if you live downtown. I avoided the mob scene at Lake Eola, but I did pay an alternative observance to the event by enjoying proudly out actor/musician Kevin J. Thornton’s Stairway...

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...

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.

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...

Emily Dickinson (Tanya O'Debra) was a poet, recluse, and the most annoying person ever born. If you decide to spend an hour with her, be prepared to part with a healthy sum of your patience. The preceding isn't my own opinion; it comes verbatim from the opening lines of Shut Up, Emily Dickinson. But...

Fringe Review: Poe and Matthews: a Misadventure in the Middle of Nowhere

Poe and Matthews is a two-man trifle created by Emily Windler, who plays the 19th-century writer Edgar Allan Poe, and Brian Kuwabara, who plays the much lesser-known author and Poe contemporary Cornelius Matthews. The play’s conceit is that, somehow or other, the two friends find themselves marooned on a desert isle and now must...
