Sounds like an amazing buffet of dance. I would have loved to see the lindy and tap. I'm a big fan of lindy hop and wrote a fictional novel : girlinthejitterbugdress.com. Too bad it wasn't better organized, but perhaps they can build on this and next year make it better?
I was in attendance and I agree with the reviewer above. "Make'em Laugh & Make'em Cry" was a well-balanced suite of dances that delighted and moved everybody sitting in Kilbourn Hall Thursday night. A 2013 Fringe Festival highlight moment-- congrats to choreographer Anne Harris Wilcox and Present Tense Dance and Friends for putting on such a beautiful concert.
Great show..but..was anyone else put off by the comment early on by one of the performers about matters of "dubious veracity" or something along those lines: the moon landing, the economic recovery and.... The Holocaust?
Not only in bad taste and insensitive to say the least, there's enough falsehoods about a topic like this to add another layer of confusion.
Alan Frost: I checked the program from the show and it was indeed labelled as "Henry VI" by the Shakespeare Players. However, a quick Google search suggests that you're right, that scene was indeed from "Henry IV, Part 1." Thanks for pointing that out!
I'm so glad I went down to this event last night. The gang from CITY really pulled it off and the Speigelgarden was beautiful on a cold Fall night. I would have scored a Zero had I played, but drinking beer, eating crab cakes while snug and warm by the chiminea was the prefect way to enjoy the hilarity that ensued. Kudos
I think you meant to identify one of the Shakepeare plays as “Henry IV Part 1” not “Henry VI Part 1.” While Falstaff was still alive and appeared in Henry VI, young Prince Hal (aka, Henry V) was already dead and gone by that time.
Nuts and Bolts has it's own 60 minute show this friday night at RAPA at 9:30. you should come out to see the whole thing
At the risk of being labeled a philistine by Rochester’s self-appointed cultural mavens, my I express my hope that a bolt of lightning (or at least a few hundred pigeons) will soon take care of this latest of Paley’s metallic (metallICK?) monstrosities?
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback! Sorry for the confusion, I talked to someone at the box office desk, which is where I've asked for information about shows in the past, Hence my reference to an "info desk."
The actors did a great job, I just thought it was a shame that no cast information was available at the theater during the festival. And yes, that was my understanding about the show, which is why I was perplexed by the response I received. It was a busy night, maybe I just caught the person at a bad moment. It happens.
Not sure who you talked to Adam since Geva doesn't have an "info desk" and we would not have said we aren't involved with the production since its actually a Geva show and will have its own run here after Fringe ( at which time I'm sure there will be programs with cast info). But glad you like it!

This is the best art thing going on in the city this year.
Something similar is happening on walls in Buffalo's Allentown District, which is similar to our Neighborhood of the Arts. I have lots of more ideas for wall murals and traffic singal box paintings in the city and maybe in the suburbs as well.
Our city is being transformed by these surprises of color and creativity happening in the most drab unexpected little corners. It's wonderful.
Will the MAG be inviting Tom Otterness back to town so he can slaughter another dog as his contribution to street "art".
I would like to thank the folks responsible for Wall Therapy. Some of the most respected and well-known wall muralists in the world now have traveled to our city and shared their work. They see Rochester as a destination to meet their peers from around the world and share ideas and fellowship, as evidenced by the fact that many have made repeat visits from very distant places to participate. They have purposefully chosen some of the most challenged neighborhoods in our city to beautify and create inspiration. They have given many of our city's most talented local artists an opportunity to both share their work in highly visible venues, and to be included in the global media attention that the event has achieved. They have encouraged an atmosphere of diversity and free expression, of joy and community. They achieved this through grassroots support and hard work, and financed it through the contributions of folks who understand Wall Therapy's value. The barking of a small handful of critics cannot change these facts.
I went to the philly show with my son. Before the show started, he turned to me and said, "this is either going to be horrible or awesome". It was awesome and hilarious. Would love to see them again.
