by BWW News Desk - May 20, 2019

For Fringe veteran Lindsay Beamish, the ideas for her next project always come from a place of no ideas. She simply finds a rehearsal room and starts to experiment.

From just that sign came improvised corporate sales pitches, contemplation of parenting, fertility and need and the memory of a powerful haiku that defines Beamish at her core. (more...)
