Review by MICHAEL FONTAINE

June 09, 2018 · original article

What I liked

The doctor takes us through a presentation of the Davidsons’ “experiences”. There is strange audio to listen to, “cursed” objects to look at and hold, and stories that…just don’t seem to make sense. If you’re a fan of paranormal investigating, you should definitely see this show.

The dichotomy between the researchers builds up throughout the entire show. The tension, uneasiness, and frustration comes to a head in the final act and makes you really feel for them.

What I didn't like

When I realized the show was over, I was hoping to have a better resolution with what just happened. You do find out what happened, but I think that could have happened within the show and it would have still made sense.

My overall impression

I always say that I can judge on how good a show is by forgetting I’m at a show. Once the lecture for “The Witnessing” started, that is exactly what happened. I wasn’t at a Fringe show, I was at a Paranormal lecture with Dr. Daugherty who was debunking any and every thing that could be considered “paranormal”.

Don't miss "THIS WAY YONDER"

Amid the coastline of South Florida, an ironclad stone crabbing business owner Ruth, takes a devastating blow when Hurricane Andrew hits in the Summer of 1991. A series of events transpire as she attempts to keep her business afloat.

Jessie's Messy Mind

A "crazy" solo show that makes a mental difference. Jessie is an artist with schizo-affective whose show is a refreshing, humorous look into the heart of mental difference. You'll either leave enlightened or simply lightened up!
