The Fringe Omnibus for May 27, 2016

Things are beginning to glaze over:

Fruit Flies Like a Banana: Alphabetical Disorder (Green) Not every musician can play classical music while hanging upside down, but this group can. Part musical virtuosity turned to evil purposes, part dance no sane choreographer would stage and more fun the P.D.Q. Bach juggling kittens, you’ll never accurately describe “Fruit Flies” to someone who’s never seen it.

Space (Brown) Lock five people in a space ship for half a decade but just don’t expect them to be nice when they arrive at Planet X. Corporate exploitation and personal vendetta make this a challenging play to watch; it delves deeply into what motivates people to engage in great adventures for little profit and even less humanity.

God Is A Scottish Drag Queen IV (Silver) I hate to say this about the Divine Creator of the Universe, but the joke wears a bit flat. This is the last pass of Mike Delamont in this role and if you’ve not seen it it’s still sacrilegiously funny. But if you’ve seen the first three I’ll just say this: “Star Wars.”

“Rocket Man” and “Kaleidoscope” by Ray Bradbury (Silver) Bradbury’s sci-fi was less about space ships than relationships; this one man gem executes dramatic readings backed with simple but effective effects. This Sci-Fi about people and what they desire rather than light sabers and hyper drives. Simply superb.

These show was presented as part of the 2016 Orlando Fringe Festival. For show times, tickets and more information please visit . http://orlandofringe.org/
