This year, I am helping to produce Candice's one-woman show, "Anatolia Speaks", and I couldn't be more proud to not only be a part of an inspiring Kenneth Brown show, but to see Candice play the role with such honesty and heart... (not to mention all the awesome reviews she's been getting). I am also a part of Grindstone Theatre's "The 11 O'Clock Number!", a fully improvised musical. I am in love with this show. Something about improvisation really gets to me... and oddly enough, a lot of us feel even more comfortable improvising songs than scenes. I love the shared passion all of us have, and the growing relationships with all the new friends I have made. There's a huge sense of trust that is earned over time between actors working together, especially when improv is involved, and you need that trust in order to make big decisions and take risks and know that your peers will catch you... and rhyme with you... and dance with you.
I love Fringe. And you should, too. Get out there and take in the food, outdoor shows, and pick a play, a musical, or dance piece to go see. It only comes once a year.
