2018 Audience Reviews
The following reviews were submitted by Fringe Member: Kara Balcerzak
Company: Oncoming Productions
Venue: Southern Theater
I'll get my quibble out of the way first: the end is a let-down, a bit too pedestrian. But the first 80% of the show is so spectacular, I'm still giving it 5 stars. Rob Ward and Emily Lindholm are absolutely amazing and mesmerizing!!! The space scenes are hands down the most gorgeous moments I've seen in the festival so far.
Company: Wayward Theatre Company
Show: Far Away by Caryl Churchill
Venue: Rarig Center Arena
Confusing play staged beautifully
As others have said, this script is rather confusing, but the acting, music, set, costumes, and directing were superb. Check it out if you don't mind uncertainty in your theater.
Company: Custer & Schmidt
Show: Our Best Life
Venue: Rarig Center Thrust
We ended up here when another show was sold out, and I'm so glad we did!! This is one of the best shows in the festival! Shanan is hilarious, smart, and charming. She's having a blast on stage, and her laughter is delightfully infectious. Final bit = 100% earned. Someone get her a Netflix special ASAP!!
Company: Grand Island Theatre
Show: Hamlet, but Hamlet's a Chicken
Venue: Minnsky Theatre
More than a chicken
Really impressive actors who kept straight faces -- and deep emotion when emotion was called for -- despite some of the most absurd scenes I've ever seen in theater. Check this out if you're looking for a solid hour of laughter! (And the chickens were adorable.)
Company: Flash Grenade Productions
Show: The Flashlight Zone: 20 Science Fiction Plays in One Hour
Venue: Theatre in the Round
Excllent and intriguing
This is a superbly acted show with a great script! Having the audience pick which piece was next provided a good palette cleanser that let me reset between vignettes. Many of the premises of these short pieces could easily extend into an entire play. Highly recommended!
