IF I'M GOOD to Play Hollywood Fringe in June

Tennessee Whiskey & Fresno Chile Productions has announced the West-Coast premiere of If I'm Good, by Ronnie Larsen, at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. If I'm Good tracks the story of two people from different ends of the political spectrum and explores how we got to the disunity we have in America today. The show opens June 4th, 2023 and runs for seven performances through June 24th at the Broadwater Black Box.

About the Show

If I'm Good encapsulates the fever dream and the endemic existential crisis that many Americans went through at the height of the pandemic. Following two people on either ends of the political divide, the play asks, “Why and how did we get here?” From injecting Clorox to cure Covid, to Jewish Space Lasers, to the dangers of The Gazpacho, the nation has been trapped in an Absurdist comedy that would make Ionesco proud and Beckett high five. Perhaps in some parallel universe these two could have been friends but in the reality of today's America, with the surprising fragility of its democracy, rife with tribalism and rabid ideology, friendship seems an impossibility.
