The festival, which wrapped up Sunday, presented scores of performances at venues in midtown, downtown and the Crossroads. The Living Room has a history of bringing back Fringe shows for limited runs.
The schedule of tonight’s back-to-back performances:
▪ “ThisThatThen,” written and directed by Bryan Moses, 7-8:30 p.m. This three-part love story depicts two people in their 20s — played by Jake Walker and Nicole Marie Green — who meet by chance and form a relationship that consists of periodic meetings at a park bench. Eventually they meet again as middle-aged people, played by Scott Cordes and Jennifer Mays. Moses is the Living Room’s associate artistic director.
▪ “The Grave” by Forrest Attaway, 8:45-9:45 p.m. Peggy Friesen, Amy Attaway and Seth Macchi are featured in this dark comedy about a unique burial ceremony in which the deceased has instructed that his ex-wife and his much younger girlfriend both be present if they hope to divide a considerable inheritance.
▪ “The Ballad of Lefty and Crabbe,” a musical by Macchi, Brian Huther and Ben Auxier about the latter days of vaudeville. This show was the Living Room’s best-attended Fringe production. Jerry Genochio, Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s producing director, staged the piece. The performance is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 per show or $25 for all three. For more information call the Living Room at 816-533-5857 or go to http://www.thelivingroomkc.com.
