Extreme Roadshow

By John Orenstein

Written by John Orenstein

In this version of Antique Roadshow, worthless items are thrown into a fiery pit. A musical romp featuring a spittoon, the Mona Lisa, a diamond necklace, banjo clocks, and a surly mob. Love wins in the end.

Cast and Crew
John Orenstein
Writer (music, lyrics & book); PBS fundraiser
John Orenstein is an Oberlin-trained pianist who, with Debbie Orenstein (related by marriage), has been writing and performing comedy songs for over thirty years. He and Debbie were world famous in Lanesboro, Minnesota (their album, Three Blocks of Fame, is available on YouTube). After a career as a lawyer, John decided to write and produce a show as a new outlet for his primary legal skills, obsessing and worrying. He is deeply grateful for the talented people who are working so hard to bring Extreme Roadshow to life.
Barbara Wiener
As a child Barbara Wiener grew up on the Atlantic Ocean where she wanted to be an astronaut; unfortunately motion sickness moved her away from that career choice. Currently, Barbara is an award-winning filmmaker whose work has been screened around the world—as far away as Shanghai and as close as the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival and the Winona Frozen River festival. Her piece, Curious George Goes to Hell, screened at the Sundance Film Festival. Before her career in film, Barbara worked at the Guthrie Theatre and The Kennedy Center and received an MFA in directing. She lives in Minneapolis with a big dog and two irritating cats (to the dog that is).

This will be her first time performing at the Fringe, and she's excited to be in a show with such a talented cast and crew. She loves all things performance and enjoys being an audience member almost as much as being on the stage. She's looking forward to a summer filled with music and theater events and brunches on sunny patios. She thanks her husband Riley for his unending support and nurturance of her passions.
