Fletcher and Zenobia Save the Circus at the Minnesota Fringe Festival


With so much buzz surrounding Fletcher and Zenobia Save the Circus, I ventured over to the Mill City Museum train shed. I was also curious about the unique venue.

The actors were giving it their all-perhaps too much. The intent may have been whimsy but came off as forced charm. The sparse story felt stretched too thin. The venue was underutilized. The best sections were the few times the action moved vertically into the space.

I enjoyed the open air ambiance and the serenading accordion. However, this just wasn’t my cup of tea.
