IndyFringe review: "Welcome to Blanksville: An Improvised Tribute to Choose Your Own Adventure®" 

Touting itself as a tribute to the classic "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories, Welcome to Blanksville chooses to go nowhere. It's an improvised sequence of scenes, in which the narrator asks the audience to decide if the stock characters on stage should -- metaphorically speaking -- choose door "A" or door "B." There was talent on the stage from the main characters, but there were moments when a few of the actors were frozen for words, or worse, desperately repeated something they had already said (only louder) hoping to get the same modest laughter. The improvised story seemingly had no beginning, climax or ending; it was like a little improv jellyfish, floating around without structure or consciousness. However, the lead acting was engaging and there were a few good jokes from the main characters. Wednesday, 9 p.m.; Thursday, 6 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, 7:30 p.m.
