PETUNIA AND CHICKEN presented by Animal Engine as part of the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. You can read the show description here.

“PETUNIA & CHICKEN is SOOO cute! You have to see it.” I told many of my co-fringers after seeing it on Sunday. And when I say “cute,” I mean it in the best sense of the word.

P&C is charming, clever, imaginative and mesmerizing. Armed only with a bowler hat and a shawl, Carrie Brown & Karim Muasher are the set, the sound effects and every character in this love story. Not only are both actors extremely talented, but their performances are extremely well-rehearsed. Great work by director Melinda Jean Ferraraccio.

I did not realize, until, near the end of the show, how emotionally invested I had become. A vocal reaction from the audience actually startled me because I had forgotten they were there. At the same time, I thought, “how awesome that they all are just as caught up in the story as I am.” That’s a bit of theater magic right there.

PETUNIA & CHICKEN is one of my favorites of all fringe shows I’ve ever seen.

P&C is being performed in (what I think) is the smallest venue. Tickets will go fast.
