OK, so I have a predilection for solo acts. Here are 3 other shows coming up at Out of the Loop Fringe Festival that are worth taking a look at.
Underneath the Lintel, a one-man show about a librarian determined to track down a long-overdue book. Patrick O’Brien has been performing Glen Bergeris’ play for a couple years now – from London to Minnesota.
The Morning After Show, Ayana Hampton’s one-woman cabaret with original music and “vaudevillian shtick.” The Booker T grad has performed Morning After at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York and Bootleg Theater in LA.
The Elephant in My Closet. David Lee Nelson has been a highlight in previous monologue-memoirs like Status Update, and this time he takes on coming-out-of-the-closet and the recent history of the Republican Party.
And while you’re there, you can always catch WaterTower Theatre’s The Ugly One. Here’s my review.
