For those in need of theater-as-therapy due to the lasting impact of war on its victims home and away, “Boogieban” will prove to be a welcome and welcoming retreat.  For other theatergoers, the performances will make your trip to Akron worthwhile.

With its must see production of “Boogieban,” none too fragile again proves that it is one of the area’s finest theaters.  This gem of a production house expands to the national scene when this staging moves to Chicago and then to New York with the same cast and production values!

In DC Fidler’s “Boogieban,” a military psychiatrist treats a young, psychologically damaged soldier with understanding and mercy, and in the process, the younger man ends up giving the elder one a priceless gift. The somberly poetic drama, now in its world premiere at None Too Fragile Theatre in Akron, played to a sold-out crowd that included the playwright and military consultant Maj. RJ Casey on opening night Friday.

In Boogiebanby D.C. Fidler, now having its world premiere presentation at None Too Fragile theater in Akron, there is banality present. But while it starts slowly, this two-hander builds inexorably to a climactic scene that is so emotionally wrenching you feel it in your bones.
