I understand that Travis Tanner was attempting to bring back the ancient chorus with the 50 people on stage, however they failed miserably. (Hence the zero for the first hour of the "oratorio." ) The huge entourage for a fringe festival play was completely unnecessary! The only point in which the "oratorio" seemed coherent was in the second half when Kelvin Ortega got his chance to dominatethe stage. The whole cast and crew should thank him for providing the few entertaining moments when he sang "Network TV Did Me Wrong"and "Positively, Negatively Me." He should have a one man show.
