POSTED 6/7/2021 – Who knew Bigfoot was actually a caring, musically gifted mental health therapist? That’s the interpretation presented in the delightful FEET: A SHORT, SASS-QUATCHY, MENTAL HEALTH MUSICAL, written and performed by Megan Tripaldi and Hollie Pryor (Polyphonic Theatre Ensemble). A slightly neurotic banjo player sings a song of desperation in the middle of the woods when a North Eastern Bigfoot shows up to listen and lift spirits. The songs are smart and catchy and Megan and Hollie are wonderful to watch. A funny and hopeful show dealing with the extremely important topic of mental self-care. A high recommend!

POSTED 6/7/2021 – Some sound issues but I had a smile on my face for this one. A trippy COVID PSA for our time.

POSTED 6/7/2021 – “It was just a lot to unload in the middle of the woods,” said the Northeastern Bigfoot, summoned by the spiky tones of a four string banjo and a lament of spiraling despair sung into the wood by our main character. What follows is a charming and heartfelt musical conversation between the singer and [their] cryptozoological mind projection. Earnest performances and clever lyrics carry the day, though the supportive therapy themes were quite conventional (for a Sasquatch) and a bit preachy/teachy. Still, the message is one I want to believe.

POSTED 6/8/2021 – All the yes! All of it! A perfect, hilarious mirror into the souls of so many of us in pandemic America, put into a banjo-ukelele musical featuring a pseudo therapist Bigfoot.
