On March 16th, the Akritical Report goes live!

“NewsSpeak”, the fourth #AkronBreadbox production, features a diverse array of local artistic talent as they "report on" some of Akron's biggest news stories. Or all of this could be... “FAKE NEWS”.

This live vaudeville performance explores Akron’s deep journalism roots and celebrates some of Northeast Ohio's most talented artists.

Featuring dance, theatre, music, sketch comedy, poetry, art (and a few surprises), this variety show has something for everyone!

Come early to grab a drink and visit a fine selection of local art and craft vendors!

It is the mission of Wandering Aesthetics to transform our community by strengthening human connection, empathy, and intellectual discourse through storytelling, live performance, classes, and other high-quality cultural encounters.

Dreamt into being on the mountains of Appalachia, where founders Benjamin Rexroad and Kyle Jozsa completed a thru-hike of the 2,185.9-mile Appalachian Trail, Wandering Aesthetics rose (like an overused cliché) from the ashes of Heads Up Productions. The organization is an Akron, Ohio-based storytelling theatre company bent on exploring our American roots and identity through the lens of narrative. We build community through person-to-person contact, connecting disparate peoples through events and performance, investigating the human link in our diverse cultural heritage. For more, visit
