My overall impression

Where else can you find actors who turn into frogs? At the Hollywood Fringe Festival’s dynamic production of AESOPERA at the Open Fist Theatre.,of course. Five fables by Aesop are wonderfully transformed into a combination of opera, drama and just plain slapstick with a talented cast that brings together all the skills that theater is made of. With music by the amazing Jonathan Price and libretto by Jeff Goode and Jan Michael Alejandro, AESOPERA is a delicious piece of entertainment,,,not to be missed. I also have to send kudos to cast member Kyle Hester who was a drama student of mine in middle-school. Kyle, you’ve come a long way. Loved it all.
