Re: “Chicago Fringe Festival on the northwestern frontier

This is my first experience going to a performance in the Fringe Festival.

I saw "Punk Grandpa" performed by Laura Scruggs, and it is simply put, perfect beauty.

Intersections of identity and vulnerability and honesty and history and family, executed by a very talented and special performer, coming together in a way that touched everyone's hearts.

If you've ever felt different and admired the freedom that comes with just being true to that difference, no matter what other people think or say, go see it! Really.

I am glad that a one-woman show has a platform like the Fringe Festival, otherwise I would never have heard this story, shed tears, laughed and come away with new insight.
