Kill Me Now: Rowan Edition invites audience participation in a live dance competition game show modeled after such popular TV reality series as So You Think You Can Dance. What begins as an extreme dance competition morphs into an examination of the competitors lust for fame and will to live. This reimagined version of Melanie Stewart's fast paced and immersive KILL ME NOW opened in the Philadelphia FringeArts festival, from September 6 - 14 2013 at The Latvian Society of Philadelphia, PA. in collaboration with the Rowan University College of Performing Arts & Campus Players.
