Off-Off-Broadway Review: “The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer” at FringeNYC 2016 at Teatro SEA at the Clemente

It is a difficult and a brave undertaking to choose to stage Henrik’s Ibsen’s “Peer Gynt.” The Classic Stage Company recently accepted the challenge with a sparse two-hour (with no intermission) version in June of 2016. It becomes more difficult when one attempts to overlay the complex script with a new narrative – the quest of an LGBTQ Peer Gynt…

Off-Off-Broadway Review: “Zamboni” at FringeNYC 2016 at The Steve and Marie Sgouros Theatre

Jamie drives the Zamboni at the ice rink and loves his job.

Off-Off-Broadway Review: “Miss” at FringeNYC 2016 at 64E4 Mainstage

“Miss” is about unspeakable acts: horrific, unforgiveable, heinous acts committed by seemingly “normal” and “respectable” individuals. Because of the structure of Michael Ross Albert’s play, it is difficult to speak of these acts without having to issue a plethora of “spoiler alerts.” The most unspeakable are committed by a Laura (played with a suspicious gritty innocence by Rosie Sowa) a…

Off-Off-Broadway Review: “Reconciling” at FringeNYC 2016 at the SoHo Playhouse

“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.

One of the many LGBTQ themed offerings in the N.Y. International Fringe Festival is “Cyrano: a love letter to a friendship” penned by Sean Peter Drohan who has attempted to create a play that slightly parallels the infamous Rostand drama but with a modern day gay twist. In this adaption, Cyrano, played with a nerdy self-pity in flawed physical shape,…
