Review On SHISHI-KEN 〜 THE PATH OF SOUL TRANSCENDENCE〜

What I liked

I like the minimal use of props and lighting, there was a point when all lights went out and the only glimpse of sunlight came through inside the theater and it was amazing and spiritual.

What I didn't like

Many times that the actor stayed on the floor was hard for me sitting in the back of the theater. Also I couldn’t help but wonder whether that sword was real and whether the front row felt safe or not. I was truly concerned for their safety.

My overall impression

I just stumble upon this show while waiting for another show at the same theater but I’m impressed by the performance of this samurai story and the guttural sounds he made as he swayed his sword mere inches from the audience.

Hi, everybody! Sweet, sweet, sweet!! I’m Victor Sotomayor and glad to be part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival community. Host of Italo’s Blog Talk Radio where I interview actors, directors about their theater productions. I also wrote, produced and directed The Oz Monologues for 2018 which received Sweet Ratings on the LemonMeter and currently working alongside Irina Kompa in her brand new Potato Nose production of The Journey of The Little Prince which I’m sure audiences will enjoy and find very sweet and inspiring as well. Thank you for supporting local theater and local artists. Have a super sweet time at the Hollywood Fringe!
