|2010 Fringe Festival Day 11: One last show
Continued from Day 10: Bating Clean-Up. Sunday, the last day of the Minnesota Fringe Festival, is usually a light day for me. As a reporter, my reviews, pictures and interviews can't affect any later shows. As a patron, I'm generally tired and go to one or two that just never fit in the schedule. In this case, the Mill City Clinic is a downtown hospital a block away from the Guthrie. The performance filled the hour, so getting to the next show would be tricky. It worked well as a stand-alone.

They had several High School friends performing, and saw the show twice.

"Do not touch the science"You Are Not Paris
is a nicely presented High School play. Slow and deliberate, the well-rehearsed ensemble cast retains their individuality while bouncing off each other. The show is a series of skits detailing medical conditions (such as synesthesia
) where all the scientists slip effortlessly into and out of the condition at hand. The interaction with the video(s) is fun to watch. Three and a half stars rounded up for good ensemble acting. My last show of the Fringe! 49! I saw fringes in 18 of the 19 venues. Now, to work on the videos…( final tally and ratings under the cutCollapse )
