Devoured by Tigers - KC Fringe Festival Review by alanskoalas | KC Stage Reviews

There is nothing unique about the storyline-plot of this play. What is almost unique is the incredible performances of every cast member.

Our Author Died Today - KC Fringe Festival review by alanskoalas | KC Stage Reviews

This play has two seemingly distinct, yet related,
scenes. It explores the philosophy of life, of being, of
doing, and of relationships. What is hell? Does it
occur after death or during life? If you love reading
philosophy and loved your college philosophy class, then
this play is for you!!! Throw in a lot of great acting
by actors that showed tremendous passion in the delivery
of their lines.

Take a trip through the past with The Bikinis | examiner.com | OffStage | Scoop.it

A veil of sadness has begun to creep across the theatrical community in Kansas City, with the final production of the American Heartland Theatre now playing at Crown Center. It was announced earlier this year that The Bikinis would be the final production of the theater which opened in 1987. The final show will be Aug. 25 and there are no more tickets for that performance.

To Make It Right - KC Fringe Festival Review by alanskoalas | KC Stage Reviews

This play opens with Samson beginning his confession
process to his priest. The confession process is
really a "flashback", as Samson has died. Josiah and
Seth are boyfriends and Samson is Josiah's cousin.
Josiah is summoned home because Samson is in the
hospital on his deathbed. Josiah goes home alone,
refusing to let Seth go with him. Seth later shows up
and what follows are some hilarious scenes.

Swoonie's Dream - KC Fringe Festival review by alanskoalas | KC Stage Reviews

I'm sorry to say this play was a real disappointment. I
don't know if I am simply too old to appreciate a clown
performance anymore or if it just simply was not good. It
is mostly non-verbal physical humor by clowns. This play
is ok for children to see, so I would suggest that you
bring your children and/or grandchildren. Maybe the kids
will like it better.
