Tvolution.com Award Fringe 2018 Tallies (HHF18)

TheTvolution.com Award Tallies for mid-Hollywood Fringe Festival ‘18 (HHF18) are in!

We rank all the shows we attend in one of the five categories listed below:

PLATINUM: These are shows that are either the standouts among the standouts or shows that capture the essence of the Fringe or prove themselves unique in some way above all others.

GOLD: These are the “Oh My God!” shows, the ones that won’t disappoint.

SILVER: These are the “Wow” shows. Solid work, solid performances and well worth seeing.

BRONZE: The “Okay” shows. Read the reviews but make up your own minds. If the show sparks your interest in some way, well, check it out. One man’s “Bronze” is another man’s “gold.”

EAR WAX: Okay, villagers, we’ll all meet at the castle, don’t forget to bring your torches and pitchforks, at midnight we march.

The Gold Ribbon Symbol —  — indicates that the show has received a full review that will appear on TheTvolution.com site. Some shows will have reviews posted as we crank them out, so check out our weekly tally.

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.
