IndyKLEZ, Farmland, IN
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.
