“Getting to Know You” was made for the Fringe. Its intimate setting- the house caps at eight audience members per show- and circular seating cultivate the feeling of community that the Fringe is all about.
As an audience member, you have minute long conversations with each of the different characters, all of who come in emotionally charged, and watch different stories unfold, all at different times.
Annie Lesser presents these mysteries and encourages audience members to talk amongst themselves after the show to put together all of the characters story lines.
It’s fun, it’s short, it’s about getting to know strangers. Go, it’s worth it.
Brigid Marshall describes the rehearsal process as well as the skills required to be involved in such a unique piece in my interview with her at Hollywood Fringe Hot Spot, Lotteria Grill.
