I saw two very nice performances at the Seattle Fringe Festival today. First off, it’s great to have the Fringe Festival back after a long absence.

Ghost Light Theatricals’ parody of television police procedurals and cop/buddy movies, “LAPD: SMU” features funny work from Steve Scheide (who looks like he just stepped off the set of a 1970s Burt Reynolds “Smokey & the Bandit” flick) and Justin Ison. And it was a blast trying to recognize the television theme songs played during transitions (I think I caught “Hill Street Blues,” “Get Smart,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “NYPD Blue”). Great job everyone.

I had to change gears for Ear to the Ground’s “School of Fish.” I was an ensemble-generated physical theatre piece that followed several characters and featured nice musical accompaniment.

A lovely way to finish off an afternoon of theater-going. Thanks, folks.
