All Eyez On Us

Posted August 28th, 2009

So, I’m out of the office for like maybe 30 hours, and look what happens:

>>>Metro features Teenager: Anne Frank. We covered this Philly Fringe show a little while back, as it’s in one of our favorite 2009 Fringe venues: the rooftop of Parkway House on Ben Franklin Parkway, with a panoramic view of the Philly skyline.

>>>At the Daily News, Lauren Friedman gives us two slants on the same Festival: first, Live Arts shows like STORE, Welcome to Yuba City, and FATEBOOK enliven spaces that were previously underutilized or vacant, and second, you know we’re all internationalist up in here, with shows like Operetta, Mortal Engine, and small metal objects.

>>>We do like to be cosmopolitan (ask Nick Stuccio about his travels some day), but we don’t forget our deep regional roots. Philly-based picks from Pig Iron’s Welcome to Yuba City, Lucidity Suitcase International’s Off the Grid (not part of Fringe, but hey, it’ll be good) and MICROWORLD(s) Part #1, and New Paradise Laboratories’s FATEBOOK, which nobody can stop talking about, including director Whit MacLaughlin and Philadelphia Weekly writer J. Cooper Robb.

>>>Speaking of those regional roots: uwishunu plugs the Fringe production Wawapalooza 3: The Dark Roast, a tribute to and humorous poke at many things Philly, according to Eric Balchunas.

>>>Big Inquirer feature from Wendy Rosenfeld, aka Drama Queen, on Welcome to Yuba City. Aw, she also plugs this little blog here in the same post. Thanks Wendy!
