DEINDE Review: That Sounds Cool, Aaron Riccio

Our first review is out! Aaron Riccio, whose voice we missed at Menders, is back¬† (and happily reviewing at full steam again – recent months had seen his essential site, That Sounds Cool, on a bit of a seeming slow down). I would say it is mostly positive, with the cast and design team winning…

(Photo: Justin Hoch at jhoch.com. Pictured: Jane Lincoln Taylor, Zack Calhoon, Bianca LaVerne Jones, Anthony Wills Jr.) In a recession, value counts more than ever, so the good folks over at The Happiest Medium have come up with a great idea – two reviews for the price of one!

(Photo: Justin Hoch at jhoch.com. Pictured: Jessica Angleskhan, Zack Calhoon, Isaiah Tanenbaum) Flux is very lucky: we have now developed a relationship with critics and artist-bloggers that stretches over multiple shows to create a shared body of call and response. Toby Thelin has now seen 6 Flux shows – from the 3 plays of the…
