My overall impression

With this show, Shine On Collective offers a tantalizing glimpse into their new fairy tale world. The Prologue tackles some heavy material but by filtering it through the lens of a modern fairy tale, it generates an intelligent social commentary on what those ideas would mean today. It also provides just enough of an introduction to Rose, Philip, and their world to grab the attention of their audience and entice them to come back to learn more as they slip deeper into Sweet Dreams.

Sweet Dreams: The Prologue will be remounted periodically during the San Diego Fringe Festival between June 30 – July 31. Part Two, another, different preview show will run during Midsummer Scream in Long Beach on July 29-30. Part 3, the main show, will run periodically throughout October and November.
