New Review: Be Brave, Anna!

Yes, I did it -- I reviewed 21 shows in this year's Fringe. Can't believe it.

Here's Be Brave, Anna!

And here's the tease:

Call her Vickie Lynn Hogan, Anna Nicole Smith, or proof that our culture teems with talentless celebutantes: Tara Schuster's Be Brave, Anna! asks us to feel for the late starlet and nearly succeeds. The 60-minute piece, directed by James Rutherford, parades most figures from Smith's circle before us, blaming all for her demise. But because both author and director have asked Jessie Renee Hopkins to seem even dimmer than Smith was in real life — not an easy task — it's tantamount to placing tacks on a raceway and revving the engine.

And yet, neither one of us saw any of the same shows. Perhaps I'll see you at the Encores series.

One can hope, right? LOL.
