These Semi-Foolish Things
This website is, of course, about all things Fortune's Fool. Those of you who are big fans just might want to know about other projects that our co-artistic directors, Daniel Pinkerton and Ariel Pinkerton, are doing with other artists and/or other companies. Because they bring a little bit of Fortune's Foolishness to everything they do.
What the hell is Dan up to?
Daniel's musical The Lady with a Lap Dog (music by Robert Elhai) was given its world premiere in 2017 by Fortune's Fool. He is working on a new musical in collaboration with Bob, Cold Planet Warm Heart. Fortunately, they can still wear masks while they write songs together! And, of course, he wrote a story for our production of To Breed, or Not to Breed and performed it with Ariel.
What the hell is Ariel up to?
In 2019, Ariel designed the astonishing lighting for Freshwater Theatre's The Drowning Girls, appeared as Xena in Xena and Gabrielle Smash the Patriarchy! at the 2019 Minnesota Fringe Festival, in Segway Productions' Church & State, and, of course, starred as Zetta in Dog Act for us. To Breed, or Not to Breed was her brainchild, and in it, she wrote and performed two stories, as well as appearing onstage with her father, Daniel, for the first time ever.
