Acquire an exploratory industry vacation absent from the Fringe campus to close by Harry P. Leu Botanical Gardens and you are going to discover the most intriguing — and frightening — introductory biology class you’ll at any time attend at Bugged Girl.

Professor Levi (Sandi Linn) is lecturing on invertebrates she has known and loved — as properly as misogynistic academics she has hated and missing — in a certainly one particular-of-a-form efficiency that fuses the pleasures of Wild Kingdom with The Silence of the Lambs. As Levi gleefully offers the viewers an intimate glance at her selection of authentic reside bugs — such as hissing cockroaches, stinging scorpions and hair-flinging tarantulas — she slowly allows slip the gory specifics of her bug-based homicides.

Linn, who wrote the script herself, is a educated scientist and training supervisor for Leu Gardens, so I’m confident you are properly harmless attending her course. But her more and more agitated efficiency is so magnetically authentic — and her animal assistants so primally triggering — that you’d greater arrive for course early and deliver paper for getting notes … just in case.
