Theater in Sketch: THE BROWNINGS (Orbiter 3)

Orbiter 3, presented by FringeArts, 140 N. Columbus Boulevard] November 29-December 9, 2017; fringearts.com/event/the-brownings; orbiter3.org/the-brownings-production

    Theater in Sketch: THE BROWNINGS (Orbiter 3)
    THE BROWNINGS at FringeArts Theater was a poetic portrait of a tortured artist. There were many great artists that lost their lives to a tortured state of mind. But THE BROWNINGS is a testament to their alternative lifestyles. The back and forth motion across the stage at FringeArts was charged with sex, drugs, and above all, love.
