What I liked

The underlying message and allegory. Full writeup at https://cahighways.org/wordpress/?p=14459

What I didn't like

The placement of Brinkley’s chair blocked audience view at times. Perhaps move him back a bit between the rows?

My overall impression

The Dangerous Cures of Dr. B is an example of the other type of Fringe show: a show that uses humor to get across a very serious point. In this case, the humor serves to deflate the power of the cult of personality. Dr. B serves as a metaphor for President Trump, and the dangerous cult that surrounds both, oblivious to the fact they are working against their own interests. This is a show that must be seen, although, alas, in Los Angeles it is so much preaching to the choir. Full writeup at https://cahighways.org/wordpress/?p=14459
