SON OF A HUTCH Review

CFF_Son of a HutchSON OF A HUTCH presented by Left Out Productions as part of the 2014 Cincinnati Fringe Festival.

You can read the show description here.

Fringe favorite Joe Hutcheson (writer/performer 2011 Critics’ Pick of the Fringe MISS MAGNOLIA BEAUMONT GOES TO PROVINCETOWN) returns this year with a personal story.

Hutcheson’s script is smart, funny and touching as he shares memories of family and growing up as a “Hutch.” A great performer and storyteller, he easily slips in and out of characters as he reenacts key moments from his past. Due to how the show is structured, it does jump back and forth in time very often. There were a couple of instances where the transitions in time were a little unclear to me. Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing some of the stories performed a bit bigger to offset the quieter moments.

Overall a great start to this year’s festival.

P. S. It’s nice to know that my dad wasn’t the only one that “watched” TV with his eyes shut.
P.S.S. Best dog name ever!

Only three performances remain through Sunday, June 1. The Gateways to Healing venue is on the smaller side, so I’d recommend getting weekend tickets early.
