"Broken Brain Summit" and "Circumference"
Hi, theatre meetup people --
Thanks so much to those of you who expressed interest in seeing “Circumference” and “Broken Brain Summit” at Old Arizona. I just wanted to say that I would loooove for any and all of you to be there, and that yes, there is a discount with a Fringe button, and also that I need “Circumference” ushers (one each night) for Saturday 4/5, Friday 4/11 and Saturday 4/12, if you’d like to ush and see the show for free. Just let me know.
All info about both shows is below, should you have missed it elsewhere...hope to see you at Old Arizona this week or next!
BROKEN BRAIN SUMMIT
Heads will roll (and sing) when renegade researcher Dr. Dendrite gathers a motley crew of brain experts for a midnight meeting. Inspired by the true stories of actors who have experienced brain trauma, and scripted by Fringe favorite Amy Salloway and Interact Center for the Arts. A show filled with metal heads, talking plants, memory loss, anger management plans and a whole lot more!

By Amy Salloway
The Ghosts of Gym Teachers Past meet the Fear of Fitness Centers Present and the Obsession with Weight Loss Future in this most-true comedy about size, sweat…and exercising your demons. From “Broken Brain” writer Amy Salloway, creator of the hit touring solo productions “Does This Monologue Make Me Look Fat?” and “So Kiss Me Already, Herschel Gertz!”, comes a funny and complicated look at the myriad ways we are -- and aren’t -- our bodies.
“A MUST-SEE: poignant, sensitive and hysterically funny”. -- St. Paul Pioneer-Press.
“Smart, funny, fearlessly candid, and generously endowed with talent.” -- The Georgia Straight.
“Dynamite! Funny and touching, ‘Circumference’ is what a Fringe play should be.” -- The Coast (Halifax, NS).
