Review: 'Animals out of Paper'


IndyKLEZ, Farmland, IN

1 star

Theatre on the Square: Main Stage. IndyKLEZ

is a capable local sextet that plays its interpretations of "world music,

Broadway and Jewish soul music." But rather than use its first foray with the

Fringe to craft a show with a meaningful beginning, middle and end, the group

has opted to throw a party for its fans instead. There is little to no

stagecraft – repeated reliance on music stand notes was particularly

off-putting and the "friends" (on Saturday, a Cantor and a couple of kids

playing violin and accordion) did little to enhance the show's haphazard

approach to showmanship.

Thursday, Aug. 26, 6 p.m.; Saturday, Aug.

28, 10:30 p.m.; Sunday, Aug. 29, 4:30 p.m.
