Fringe review: Andrea Merlyn's Book of Secrets



Daniel Forlando, MA

4 stars

Editors note: this review contains NEW times for the production.

Tomfoolery with perfect timing, a rubber face changing

expressions before you can blink, dexterity to make you hold your breath

— Forlano is a one-man circus with an uncanny resemblance to the

inimitable Danny Kaye with a pinch of Charlie Chaplin, a dash of Harpo and a

splash of Buster Keaton. The shy guy becomes the highlight of the party without

saying a word. To say more is to spoil the discoveries. Unbearable is

delightfully bearable.

IndyFringe Theater: Wednesday, Aug. 28, 9:00 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 28, 3:00 p.m.;

Sunday, Aug. 29, 7:30 p.m.
