Odd Words’ Fringe Fest Curtain Call: ‘Shylock’ Reviewed November 21, 2011

My last review for NOLA Defender from Fringe Fest is up front and center. Shylock was such an amazing play it deserves the placement. It’s just too bad it only had a two night run as it deserved an SRO week. I neglected to call out the director, Elsa Dimitriadis, who deserves her share of the credit for such an excellent production.

Reviews of local plays is a new thing, but I’m having so much fun doing it look for more reviews either on the blog or on other local sites. The weekend of reviewing started with a play I had to pan, but I had the privilege of covering an amazing night of performance poetry at Writing the Edge and to finish with Shylock was a treat. Sadly I couldn’t manage a whirlwind weekend of plays as I did last year but if I had tried that and writing reviews, I’d probably be convalescing somewhere in an oxygen tent on a B-12 and steroid drip by now.

Out of the three events I covered two were solid hits so I have to say it a wonderful Fringe Fest here on Toulouse Street. A big thanks to Ben and Stephen at NOLA Defender for adding me to their reviewing corps (and it takes a corps of talented people to cover as many events as NoDef managed from the extensive Fringe schedule).
