Another Fringe show makes a comeback

Viet Nguyen’s haunting Fringe piece, Reincarnation Soup, comes back to life for two weekends at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center:

Reincarnation is making a comeback.

Mandell Theater at Lowndes Shakespeare Center
812 E. Rollins St

At the border between birth and death, a mysterious, old blind woman serves mind-cleansing soup. What happens when the soup doesn’t work?

After a successful run at the Orlando Fringe, Reincarnation Soup comes to the Mandell Theater in association with Empty Spaces Theatre Company. Viet Nguyen’s solo show explores memory, mythology, and the Vietnamese experience.

Where: Mandell Theater at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center

Sunday, June 20, 2pm
Wednesday, June 23, 8pm
Thursday, June 24, 8pm
Saturday, June 26, 2pm

Tickets: $10 at the door, cash only

Reincarnation Soup is a small show that will stay with you. It deserves to be seen– and celebrated.”
-Elizabeth Maupin

“The overall effect is alternately chilling and heartwarming.”
-Carl F Gauze, Ink19

“Nguyen has a knack for using just enough humor to soften you up for the emotional blow later on.”
-Tod Caviness, Orlando Sentinel
