This production reminds of one of many strange footnotes in American history we gloss over and reminds us of just how easily that mentality can cause them to keep happening. Issues of public health, private trust, the "je ne sais quoi" of a dictator, and the manipulability omnipresent in the human condition. ... full review

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... full review

This was an incredibly interesting and original piece of theater. The acting was great as the actors were all fully committed to the world in which they were all existing. The addition of live folk music was also a huge plus! I was thoroughly impressed that every aspect of the show was an original creation.... full review

I saw this show a few nights ago and I still have hauntingly brilliant visuals in my mind. Was it the lighting? Did it all seem like a flickering movie that happened before my eyes? It was indeed very disturbing, which means they succeeded in making me FEEL something. Bravo.... full review

An experimental piece that explores the story of a healer/charlatan/con man's affect on the lives of those who wish to be "healed" by his services. The piece is charming at first, but manages to take on an almost sinister tone at times as more is learned about Dr. B's radical methods. The show provides a chilling reminder of how gullible we all can be if we want something bad enough.... full review

The performance was wonderfully unexpected, well written, well performed and cohesively directed. It felt familiar, as if it were unraveling deeper notions of the characters in my own life. All the while it was extremely theatrical with an ambitious group of spot on cues. I would recommend this play to all. ... full review
