More Fringe Festival Standouts

ArtsBeat reviews a couple of Fringe Festival productions playing at the newly revived Bleecker Street Theater. According to Andy Webster, the score for “Winner Take All (A Rock Opera)” is performed by “an R&B powerhouse who could out-sing Satan with her hands tied behind her back.” Meanwhile Anita Gates thinks “Chasing Heaven” is “funny, thoughtful, brightly acted and about as timely as a play can get.”

Fringe Festival Standouts

If “Lines” doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, ArtsBeat has posted reviews of a couple of other local productions. Andy Webster ponders “Le Gourmand, or Gluttony!”, a “fanciful operetta about the 18th- and 19th-century food critic Grimod de la Reynière”; and Jason Zinoman thinks that, owing to the “majestically silly” performance of Harriet Harris, “Yeast Nation (the triumph of life)” could be the Fringe Festival‘s next breakthrough hit à la “Urinetown.”
