If you missed last week’s performance of “Unmoderated: A Reading of Eastsider Comments,” you will have another opportunity tomorrow, Saturday, June 15, to watch the show during The Hollywood Fringe Festival.
A group of actors will bring The Eastsider comments section to life with tales of gentrification, abandoned sofas, homicide and hipsters. The June 15 show–featuring performances by Jennifer Defilippo, Jesse Garcia, Sarah Hollis, Bob Kundrat, Darrell Kunitomi, John Pick, Erin Shaver and Robert Williams–will draw upon a sample of some of the thousands of comments left by readers on the blog in 2012.

Blogger Tracey Paleo, who posted a review of the show, sums it up this way:
To note, this is a staged reading. There is no dramatic movement choreography, no costumes, no sound effects, no music. It is serious stage dramedy truly at its best presented by 8 tremendously gifted actors who, through merely character voice changes, bring to life entire neighborhoods along with their varied collective and individual opinions about the one thing we all find hardest to deal with in city life, change.
