Fringe review: Andrea Merlyn's Book of Secrets



Avenging Orange Productions; Indianapolis

3 stars

The story follows museum employee Will as he seeks a means

to shut off the mysterious and constant music in his head and reclaim his

sanity within 17 days. After proclaiming a new view on life, he soon falls in

love with his new boss and, of course, problems arise. What made this play

especially charming was how enthusiastic and animated the actors were,

especially those in supporting roles. The jokes don't always land as they

should and the scenes are inconsistent, but the spirited vibe of the performers

keeps the play engaging.
