Broceliande: The Death of Merlin
"And as he taught me of his sorcery,
from "Broceliande: The Death of Merlin"
Praise for Broceliande
"...edgy, intelligent, lit-dorky...back and ready to rule."
"...intense and riveting...exhilarating, well-acted and visually
"...a brilliant job of combining classical theatre presentation
with spoken word slam poetry...you haven't lived until you've seen a bunch
of blue hair rocking to Arthurian hip-hop."
"I'm still kind of dumbfounded after seeing this show...I just had
no idea they were this good...one of those Fringe shows that seemingly
comes out of nowhere and knocks me on my ass. I loved this show...intensely
compelling to watch...simply but inventively done...a compelling nightmare,
a one-act expressionist verse tragedy
Cast: two male, two female, a musician, five total.
