Review: KARAOKE AFTER DARK at Raring Center Arena

Review: KARAOKE AFTER DARK at Raring Center Arena

This production runs now through August 14th

This production is part of the Minnesota Fringe and was put on by Orthogonal Productions and created by Curvee B. Karaoke meets improvisational burlesque! Audience members will have the chance to sing their favorite songs, and our rotating cast of burlesque performers are going to try and make it sexy. Somehow.

This was an interesting concept but a fun concept! When audience members walked in, the host Curvee B asked audience members if anyone wanted to sign up for karaoke, they would choose from a list of songs and then the burlesque cast members would do an individual improvised performance to that song. The audience had a lot of fun as they were singing and dancing along and cheering on the performers.

Review: VIETGONE at Guthrie TheaterReview: VIETGONE at Guthrie Theater

What did our critic think of VIETGONE at Guthrie Theater? When Saigon falls in 1975, Quang and Tong, two Vietnamese refugees separated from their previous partners, have a sexy meet-cute in Arkansas that promptly becomes a no-strings-attached relationship to pass the time. Living in the land of 'cheeseburgers, waffle fries and cholesterol' (aka America) proves to be an intoxicating adventure that leads Quang and Tong to question their futures, both together and in their new country. Part history play and part memoir, this whip-smart comedy is punctuated with flashbacks and bursts of rap songs, all while giving unabashed reflections on American culture and offering a human-centered view of the Vietnam War and its aftermath.
