Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival – Blue Venue

Seven sell outs, Patron’s Pick and a final sell out for that bonus show – cramped little Breakthrough Theatre has successfully carried their large cast, small space concept to the Fringe festival. They did pick some easy fruit, this show features scantily clad (and even FFN) dancers belting the hits of cabaret style performance and put it right in the audiences’ face. Songs like “Don’t Tell Mama” (Alexandra Milbrath) or “An Old Fashioned Love Story” by Erynn Hair from the obscure “The Wild Party” and the LED-spangled “You Gotta Have a Gimmick” from “Gypsy” are good examples, but that’s not to minimize the songs made famous by Marilyn and Rocky Horror. The sad part about this success is there are no plans to reprise it, if you weren’t one of the lucky golden ticket holders, you missed a great entertainment. To paraphrase the beach boys:”We had fun, fun, fun till Wade Hair took our cabaret away.”

This show is part of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival. Tickets and other information may be found at http:\\www.OrlandoFringe.org
