KC Fringe Festival
In a standing room only house, I saw the Fringe production of "Head" a show that was inspired by the beheading of John the Baptist at the request of Salome and Herodias the wife of King Herod. Written and directed by Kyle Hatley, this show started out very powerfully with an excellent performance by Grant Prewitt, the Fool. The story was retold in an 21st century look at why the death of "The Profit" was necessary. There were some excellent performances from several actors namely Matthew Rapport as King Herod, Natalie Liccardello as Salome and and an outstanding performance by Alan L. Boardman, as the Chef.
The majority of the play was well written and well acted by all the performers. It was not until the ending of the play where everything just seemed to dwindle to a halting stop.
I look forward to seeing more from this visionary
writer/director/producer not only in the Fringe but in the mainstream arena.
