The Death of Thomas Edison had a great glass player and other multimedia special effects. I had a hard time "getting" the plot but I was tired. Will be interested in reading other reviews.
The 8th Fold was better than interesting. A musical (more opera than comedy) about how kids coped after their fathers or brothers did not return from active duty in Iraq or Afganistan precipitated by Sept 11th. At the end of the show the narrator acknowledges that all 4 of the boys grew up after starting from an emotional ground zero. Technically the use of the term was spot on as far as the boys were concerned.
However, the boys' war was caused by decisions of the American President at the time, not the destruction of the World Trade Center. The English authors of this otherwise very good piece probably do not know how the Ground Zero soundbyte is viewed by many of us in the U.S. I do hope it makes the Encores which are usually shown around Sept 11th. We need to stop and think about the effects of war on the people back home.
I would like to see the Bohemian at another theater. The noice from the generator running the fans made it difficult and sometimes impossible to hear the actors properly. I suspect it is a good show.
Held Momentarily will lift the spirits of all NYC subway riders. Great musical. Being stuck on the subway will never be the same. I hope this has a longer life. Enjoy the final week of the Fringe - see great things.
Some pics from Summer Streets 2 and 3. Come back next year.
