Paul & Erika’s HOUSE SHOW World Premiere at 2020 Cincinnati Fringe Festival

CFF20_Paul and Erika's House showFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CINCINNATI, OHIO (May 19, 2020) Coming to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival this May and June is Paul & Erika’s House Show, a brand new 35-minute virtual house show for adults full of strange stories, original music, digital puppetry and more.

A highly entertaining love letter to live audiences everywhere.

This entire show was conceived, developed, and produced between April 15th and May 15th, 2020, in Paul and Erika’s Covington, Kentucky, apartment.

Erika Kate MacDonald and Paul Strickland, 15-time “Best of Fest” winners at Fringe Festivals here in Cincinnati and across North America, have teamed up to make what they call a “house show too fun to stay in one house.”

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL HOUSE SHOW?
Paul keeps telling people “We don’t know how to make a movie!”  Erika finds herself calling this “a… video?”  The only thing they both agree on is, “It is definitely a show!”  When you buy a ticket you’ll be given a link and a password to watch the full show online any time during the Festival dates.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Paul and Erika are local creators who actually moved to Cincinnati because of this city’s amazing creative opportunities – specifically, the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, where they have been creating hit new shows for the last seven years.

Paul and Erika’s Fringe shows have sold out every year that they have performed at the Cincy Fringe. Past shows: 90 Lies An Hour (2019), ExTrashVaganza! (2018), Balls of Yarns (2017), Ice Candle (2016), My Left Teeth (2016), Tales Too Tall for Trailers (2015), Papa Squat (2014), and Ain’t True & Uncle False (2013).

They tour their work professionally across the U.S. and Canada.

ABOUT THEATRE MOBILE
Theatre Mobile makes theatre. That moves around. Founded by Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald, Theatre Mobile aspires to scratch that itch for alternative, bare-bones, creativity-forward theatre in Cincinnati.
