2016 Capital Fringe Review: “POWER!” Stokely Carmichael

I wish that recent events had not made this powerful theater experience so necessary.

2016 Capital Fringe Review: ‘Petunia and Chicken’

I have never started a Fringe with such joy. The cause of that joy is kids’-show-in-disguise Petunia and Chicken, the brainchild of Animal Engine (husband and wife team Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher), a physical devised theatre ensemble based in New York City.

2015 Capital Fringe Review: ‘Bortle 8’
