"What an amazing show! It mixes dance, music, spoken lines, and and singing perfectly. It was a non-stop enjoyment for all the senses. It also has just the right amount of audience interaction where it’s not so much where it’s uncomfortable, but just enough that you feel like part of the show. The melodies and beats kept me tapping my foot and wanting to get up and dance with the cast. It was so very unique and very well done."

"A brilliantly entertaining re-telling of a legendary Hollywood tale, told in the town where it originally took place. Performed by an ensemble of 8 actors who work together perfectly to create a dream-like atmosphere exploring this Hollywood legend that incorporates live percussion which provides a heartbeat for the actors while accentuating mood and propelling the action forward."

"Scarlett Fever is a unique, inventive and well-polished work of physical theatre, and while it’s terrific if you’re interested in experimental storytelling or have a love of Old Hollywood history, you don’t need either of those to appreciate this richly entertaining piece. - MUST SEE SHOW"

"...this is about as good and magical as it can get, friends. Wuchte takes us on a uniquely cohesive physical and musical journey into the mythic quest for the actress to play Scarlett O’Hara and ends up taking us into a surprisingly internal ‘all things Hollywood’ experience that resonates quite soundly today. With music created by Wuchte & award-winning composer Michael Teoli that is provided live thanks to Wuchte, Kent Jenkins and Gordon Wimpress, 8 actors deliver a performance you won’t want to miss."

"Scarlett Fever revisits David O. Selznick’s highly publicized search for the perfect actress to play Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind. One of the most successful publicity stunts in Hollywood history, the facts have been examined in books, dramas, and documentaries. Writer/Director/Creator John Wuchte’s idea is to view the story through his unique fusion of kinesics, stylized dialogue, and percussion. The result, unlikely as it sounds, is a captivating and hypnotic dance through a Tinseltown tall tale."

"Eerily broad Scarlett Fever is even so, incredibly evocative and immanent in its presentation style especially in actress confessionals and camera seductions... Definitely one of the more fascinating and resonant productions at Fringe. Recommended"
