Well, that title might be ungrammatical, but there’s little else to fuss about with this show created by the Artemis Exchange for the 2010 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. It’s good enough that the Chicago Fringe has selected it for a run later this year in September. Before it heads off to entertain others, you have a chance to see it reprised locally this week, presented by New Edgecliff Theatre at the Columbia Performance Center (3900 Eastern Ave., Columbia-Tusculum).

NET gave the date to the show when they cancelled the Cincinnati Directors Competition, citing a lack of applicants. Aberrant Reflections uses high-camp physical comedy to deliver its observations regarding the “secrets, lies, myths and truths behind eons of humanity’s barbarism.” In a crazy carnival of minimally controlled chaos, actors Chris Wesselman, Chris Dooley and Emma Roberts explore religion, politics, relationships and conspiracy theories. If you missed it last June, this is a chance to catch up. And if you saw it, you might want to check it out again — you’ll find new levels of meaning on a second viewing.
