TURBULENCE!

The chemistry between the members of this ensemble was palpable and the force was strong in them...This is one of those Fringe shows you don't mind seeing more than once...Unless you want to be kidded for missing out on the BEST (according to my wife) show at HFF17, then you simply MUST See this show.

Shattered

Told through 35 characters, which included many of the emotions that haunt most of us, this show made its mark and earned the distinction of being among our favorite shows of HFF 17. It was funny, sad, heart-wrenching and hopeful, and left us with a true sense of purpose to becoming the person we were meant to be. Kudos to Ms. Varco for a true Fringe work of art.

Magic 8 Ball (My Life with Asperger's)

This show has got to be one of the hidden gems of HFF 17. Wonderfully directed by first time directorial team Penni and Crystal Wilson, the show was written and performed by George Steeves, who is also a singer-songwriter with songs available on iTunes. Needless to say, this was one of the best shows we have seen at Fringe this year...If you only have time for a few shows at Fringe, this is a MUST SEE! We are proud to give Magic 8 Ball one of our highest recommendations.

NOSFERATU, A Symphony In Terror!

In what has to be the most unique show we have ever seen at Fringe, Crown City Theatre Company brings us the stage version of the classic 1922 film, Nosferatu. What makes it so unique is the complete lack of dialogue, other than what is projected on the back wall, and the amazing voice of the narrator.

Confessions of an Arab Woman

Joumana Haddad is considered to be one of the most powerful Arab women in the world today, and this insight into her was breathtakingly beautiful...The imagery and staging were first rate, and the piece left us thinking long after the final bow. This was a true work of art.

Billy ..... From Como to Homo

In what has to be one of the most physically demanding of solo shows, 70 year old Lynne Jassem tap dances her way into our hearts in this amazing and brilliant production, directed by the solo queen herself, Jessica Lynn Johnson...Jassem is a natural storyteller and weaves her life story in such a way that it is ripe for a sequel...You simply MUST SEE this show.

Ascent

To put it nicely, it was a hot mess. Of course they waited until it was over to tell us “we're a work in progress.” Boy was that an understatement. The concept is there but the show lacks structure.

An Evening with John Wilkes Booth

It was an insightful journey through the mind of a killer, and Stephen Spiegel was excellent in bringing the audience along. The show was wonderfully written and directed by Lloyd J. Schwartz.

Chemo Barbie: My Lady Bits' Journey Through Breast Cancer

If there were an award for the most tender, emotional and inspirational show at Fringe, then Chemo Barbie would win hands down. I have personally never cried so much during a Fringe show as I did at this show, which tugged at my heart and connected with my past experiences with friends and family...Heather Keller is a powerful actress with the emotional strength to make her journey relatable to her audience as well as inspire them to live. The show was wonderfully directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson, who squeezed out an amazing story of triumph and hope from the tragedy that could have been Keller's life. Believe me when I tell you that seeing Chemo Barbie is a life-changing experience I will cherish forever. This show is a MUST SEE and truly worthy of an extension. Don't miss your opportunity to be inspired.
