Dr. Bill Coplin advocates developing skill before scholarship

Sometimes a good commencement speech doesn’t happen on the last day of school. We saw a variation of this lecture by SU professor Bill Coplin earlier this week, and thought about how many students could benefit from this kind of information.

Frackenstein: Taking theater to the streets (and new heights)

Frackenstein: Taking comedy/drama to the streets (and to new heights)

First, we’d like to thank Anna Phillips for reminding us about the Fringe Festival here in town this weekend.  We attended the 2013 festival and saw Anna act out her show ‘Spatial Profiling.’

Fringe seems to be great place catch some innovative art presentations.

Last night we experienced ‘Frackenstein, which was presented along the Connective Corridor, at the Syracuse Stage patio. The one act show envisions a totally fracked future mixing elements of Cirque du Soleil and Mad Max’s Road Warrior, with a small pinch of Laurel and Hardy slapstick.

Frackenstein features Mr. Sticks (played by Steve, who must have been a gymnast in a past life) and Splendito (played by the uber flexible Freddy). The duo provides just enough shock value to keep the audience, and those strolling along East Genesee Street, guessing.

We would have loved to see this type of event take place during SU Homecoming or an ACC Game Day Weekend when it would have just freaked out visitors (in a good way).

Frackenstein will play for the next two nights. If you are in the neighborhood stop by and check it out. You just may become part of the show.

Splendito (played by Freddy) and Mr. Sticks (played by Steve) occupied an open air stage on Syracuse Stage's patio for about an hour on Thursday.
