The ones that truly matter….

 

BEST OF THE FRINGE

THE SECOND COMING OF KLAUS KINSKI

The stunning performance by Andrew Perez as the actor Klaus Kinski was beyond riveting, and director Eric Johnson rode the tail of the dragon shaping this into the most mind-blowing show of this Fringe.   Adele Cabot’s voiceover work aided significantly to this staggering examination of the line between genius and madness.

BEST SOLO SHOW (FEMALE)

THE GIRL WHO JUMPED OFF THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN

A young woman faces the fatal seductiveness of fame, clinging to the top of the Hollywood Sign.  Written and performed with stunning, emotional honesty by Joanne Hartstone, directed by Vince Fusco.

BEST SOLO  SHOW (MALE)

HELP! I THINK I MIGHT BE FABULOUS

Alfie Ordinary is beguiling in the most thoroughly entertaining show of the 2017 Fringe.

BEST MUSICAL

TURBULENCE!

Chris Bramante, Miles Crosman, Molly Dworsky, Sam Johnides, Branson NeJame, Kat Primeau and David Reynolds boldly go where no man has gone before.  And they go there singing and dancing.  A grand romp of intergalactic rivalries and good ol’ human frailties.

BEST COMEDY

BONO AND THE EDGE WAITING FOR GODOMINO’S

Writer/director Richard Lucas’ clever utilization of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot to mock the absurdity of star status in our society by transposing Beckett’s two tramps into Bono and David Evans of the rock band U2. Performed to prickly perfection by Lucas, Curt Collier, Jeff Blumberg and Bruno Oliver.

BEST DRAMA

THE INTERFERENCE

Lynda Radley’s intense and uncompromisingly bold play applies the contrivances of classical Greek theatre to address the very modern tragedy of sexual violence on today’s campuses.  Cathy Thomas-Grant in association with Rogue Machine created a stunning staging as a young woman who defies accepting the role of a victim’s fate, which society would seek to force on her.  With Chris Bozzini, William Craig, Addyson E. L. Culpepper, Dakota Dickerson, Mallory Erwin, Jacquelyn Ferguson, Alexandria Garrett, Parker Johnson, Buddy Kennedy, Brittany King, Caroline Pitts and Brandon Ruiz.

BEST ENSEMBLE

LADIES IN WAITING: THE JUDGEMENT OF HENRY VIII

James Cougar Canfield portrays Henry VIII, in his play about England’s most oft-married king finding himself in death’s limbo, facing the verdict of the six women who were his queens.     Director Mitchell Glass establishes the pathways of the ladies Henry wooed, wed, loved, discarded and condemned as they flowed in orbit about him.  A stellar cast in Canfield (Henry), Hilary Kelman (Catherine of Aragon), Wendy K. Skuse (Anne Boleyn), Laryssa Schoeck (Jane Seymour), Jennifer Haining (Anne of Cleves), Elli Stovall Brown (Catherine Howard) and Claiborne Tomlinson (Katherine Parr).

THE ESSENCE OF FRINGE AWARD

ANDY: THE RED-NOSED WARHOLA

Director/adapter Ezra Buzzington invites his audiences to experience a riotous rollercoaster ride down the rabbithole of the mind of Andy Warhol.  A dazzling, cerebral delight featuring

Kara Emry as Warhol and Krista Conti and Will McMichael as “Beauty #1” and “Beauty #2.”

Written by

An award-winning L.A. playwright and rabble-rouser of note who has hoisted glasses with Orson Welles, been arrested on three continents and once beat up Charlie Manson. His first play, Among the Vipers was a semi-finalist in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition and was featured in the Carnegie-Mellon Showcase of New Plays. It was produced at the NPT Theater in Ashland, Oregon and Los Angeles’ celebrated Odyssey Ensemble Theatre. His following play, “The Little Boy Who Loved Monsters” was produced at The Hollywood Actors Theater, where he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times for his “…inordinately creative writing.” The play went on to numerous other productions including Berlin’s The Black Theatre under the direction of Rainer Fassbinder who wrote in his program notes of Kearney, “He is a skilled playwright, but more importantly he is a dangerous one.” Ernest Kearney has worked as literary manager or as dramaturge for among others The Hudson Theater Guild, Nova Diem and the Odyssey Ensemble Theatre, where he still serves on the play selection committee. He has been the recipient of two Dramalogue Awards and a finalist or semi-finalist three times in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition. His work has been performed by Michael Dunn, Sandra Tsing Loh, Jack Colvin and Billy Bob Thornton, and to date, either as playwright or director, he has upwards of a hundred and thirty productions under his belt, including a few at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as puppeteer. After a wild and misspent youth, which lasted well into middle age, Kearney has settled down and is focusing on his writing, as well as living happily ever after with his lovely wife Marlene. Ernest's stage reviews and social essays can be found at TheTVolution.com and workingauthor.com. Follow him on Facebook.
