Why do I love Fringe? Sure, there are one-man/woman shows, comedies, musicals galore. And they’re often dynamite, fantastic and genius. But every once in a while, something comes along that REALLY tries to be different, unique, strange and unusual.
This year, you’re already part of one of those. Because Shine Labs has been quietly watching you from the shadows—and you’re a perfect candidate to learn “The Truth”. All you need to do is accept your chance to be a test subject during this year’s Fringe festival and off you go.
Really, that’s all I want to tell you about this particular experience. I mean, yes, it’s theater—sort of. It’s really a lot more than that. It’s sort of a LARP (Live Action Role Play) experience. It’s sort of a walking tour around the Santa Monica Theater Row. It’s sort of a strange mind-trip where you can find yourself (like I did) standing on a street corner, watching an actor dancing to music while listening to her tell a terribly sad story about her past AND knowing at the same moment that:
Yeah, it’s THAT kind of experience.
Because The Truth is one that you can only learn directly.
But it’s one every one should learn—and as fast as possible. In fact, it’s one I’m very seriously contemplating going back to learn again.
