    Orlando Fringe review: 'The Greatest Musical Never Written by Two Nobodies'

    Orlando Fringe review: 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson'
    The most striking thing about "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" is how well emo music suits the United States in its infancy. Raw, fearless and expressing big dreams in a big way, Michael Friedman's music captures the spirit of 200 years ago when men were...
  • Orlando Fringe review: 'The Death of Brian'

    Editor's note: Theater Simple is reviving "Death of Brian," which it presented at last year's Fringe Festival. Here's our review of the 2013 production. For a play about a zombie, Ricky Coates' frenetic one-man romp has plenty of life. We meet his Brian...
