    Great show. Characters were diverse, real and interesting. The conflict really drove the story and discovery was truthful. Well played.

  • A Love Lost Life   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Evey

    I am not even a Brando fan, but this show was very powerful, I did not know about his tragic life's end... Just a great show, and Rob Ashkenas was so realistic I thought I was sitting there with Brando. More people need to see this show. Thanks Evey.

  • Interview: Poofy du Vey: Courtney Cunningham   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Robin Chase

    After seeing Poofy last summer in Winnipeg, it was great to hear Courtney talk about her background in theatre, and to discuss the show and the character of Poofy du Vey. This is a show not to be missed and I urge everyone to see her show in Orlando.

  • Matanzas: A Survivor’s Story   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Lee Missavage

    The dramatic historical drama "Matanzas" about the French Spanish battle near St Augustine is an excellent counterpoint to the light comedic shows in most other venues at the festival. I saw it this afternoon and highly recommend it. Scott Isert, the only actor in the play, brings the story to life with a passionate fervor that pulls you right into the story.

  • So Kiss Me Already, Herschel Gertz!   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Ryan

    From Amy's Blog:

    Do people know about the reviews at
    Current mood: tired

    Hey, Orlando Fringe Peeps --

    Did you all know that the pseudonymically-named Carl F. Gauze is reviewing shows on a website called He is, indeed, in a somewhat humorous, conversational fashion, with writing that's rather free and loose (he calls "Pentacostal, Wisconsin" "Wisconsin Pentacostal", for example). You can see my review here, or here:

    So Kiss Me Already Herchel Gertz!
    By Amy Salloway
    Awkward Moment Productions
    Red Venue
    Orlando Fringe Festival, Orlando, FL

    Oy, was this show ever Jewish! There was a chair near the entrance to the Red Venue, and as the line built up two tired Jewish women kvetched over who should sit there: "No, you should sit." "No, you. I can stand already." It was a great way you set the mood for this one woman first person story of growing up in Milwaukee and having to deal with summer camp. I say first person because so many one person shows try to play 10 or 30 charters, and they often end up as hard to follow mish-mashes. Ms. Salloway avoids that, telling about the trauma of adolescent and finding a first boyfriend, no matter how inappropriate.

    Amy is sent away so her mother can have some surgery with the parting shot "I can't deal with you AND my uterus". The camp is a conservative Jewish summer camp "Camp L'Chaim". Where I come from summer camp meant boys and girls are kept in separate states. Here, the sexes mingle freely, but you can only listen to Jewish folk music and eat your meals in Hebrew. Amy has body shape issues (ok, she's fat) and social issues (her parents aren't wealthy) and acceptance issues (she's the new kid and everyone else is paired up). So who doesn't she get? Slow talking Velcro kissing Herschel. He's no prize, but he's better the Schmolo the Homo.

    Amy's story is bouncy and touching, with a nice variety of humor and pathos. We've all gone through similar things growing up, and its fun to look back and see how we might have been, or maybe where we are right now. The folk music is folksy, and there's a handy Yiddish decoder ring to help the goyim. Be a mensch, see the show. You'll plotz!

    "I enjoyed your show... I did tell you that I peed a little... I needed that bed pan you were holding, but for some reason I just couldn't hold it in any longer!" (thanks, Sarah)

  • Out of Pocket   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Ryan

    It's strange what Maupin wrote about you - she loves you guys but thinks the script is wrong... I'll admit I liked last year's show so much because of the energy you got to put into it, the immediate but obvious changes of characters and scenery and the humor.

    Also, I think the ending of this play didn't have as much of a message - but that might have something to do with the script being too long and having to cut things down.

  • Thoughts anyone?   16 years 18 weeks ago   by Ryan

    There is a semi-related discussion over at Maupin's blog -

    Personally, I don't know why we need celebrity announcers at all - I'm sure they're fun to record (and listen to the first 2 times), but if they're gonna spend all that time in the studio they could record 3 or 4 of them at the very least -- I kept hearing other voices like Ryan and Genevieve in the background, but they never said anything... I like that SPORT's program encourages you to talk back to the announcement.

    Lately I've been using those 60-90 seconds to type a text message and send it to the Twitter.
