Rave review from Ed Malin (Click the link above but warning - MASSIVE SPOILER ALERTS)
"There's not a dull moment in this show, nor will there likely be an empty seat. The fast-paced performance seems to get a laugh from every facial expression the talented ladies choose to give us."
"Would no one read a book or go see a movie about Asian American women unless they were made to be "exotic"? Siho Ellsmore and Marisa Marquez are suggesting just this in their hilarious show Yellow Brick Wall: Angry White Men Played By Two Happy Asian Girls."
The dog days of August in New York are always made more bearable by the annual arrival of The New York International Fringe Festival, that granddaddy-of-them-all! A cornucopia extravaganza of theater, performance art, dance, music, multi-media…anything and everything that can be viewed by an audience plays at The Fringe. A production of The Present Company, this year’s Fringe edition is number 16, and performances take place all over downtown in more than 20 venues, with attendance expected to top 75,000 people. Fringe 16 runs from August 10-August 26. Yes, New York, it’s All Fringe, All the Time rocking downtown this month.
Now, in my ongoing effort to keep you Fringe-savvy during August, here are some early highlights, shows to be on the lookout for as you’re navigating the sheer vastness of viewing opportunities at the festival. And be sure to log on to the Festival’s website at www.fringenyc.org for a complete run-down and schedule. Take a look at:
