Feelin’ Fringy…

I saw two really good shows at the Fringe Festival yesterday.

“Tape” is a play about two long time freinds meeting up in Lansing, Michigan. One of them has an agenda involving another old friend. Let’s just say the agenda is kind of malicious. This was also made into a movie with Ethan Hawke. This shortened version is absolutely wonderful. There are only three characters so it remains a nice, tight little tale about redemption. All three of the actors turn in stellar performances. They only have one performance left (Friday @ 10:00 PM) at the Rarig Center on the U of M campus. This is a show not to miss.

312.gif“Google: The Musical” takes place in the future where Google is all powerful and then decided to leave. Chaos ensues all over the world. At times wildly wacky, other times incredibly touching, this play lightly takes on our obsession with technolgy. Great music and a stand out performance by Haley Chaimberlan as the lead character. They still have three more performances, so it would be worth your while to see it. It is locally written, like most shows are for the Fringe. But this one just seems to shine a little bit abouve the others. Loved it!!
