Capital Fringe Fest 2009: Our Comprehensive Rundown

Hey Fringefolk~

We figure it can be pretty hard to keep all these shows straight. To make it easy on ya, we've created this page—a comprehensive rundown on all the shows we've covered. (We's a lot to handle.) Make sure to check back, as we'll be updating this list every day to provide you with that stress-free, feel-good Fringe experience you've been dreaming about. Enjoy!

    Hope you get a chance to see and review "Waiting for the Trigger" at the Goethe Institut Gallery. DC Theatre Scene gave us four stars and called it "...the funniest, most purely enjoyable theater experience I’ve had in a long time... a delirious and welcome departure from reality." Two more shows this coming weekend!

  2. #2

    Why isn't there a review of the Rude Mechanicals' "The Tempest: A Celtic Musical" on this page? It's a Warehouse Mainstage show, has been listed as one of the top ten shows to see at Fringe on Express Night Out, and has received excellent reviews from DC Theatre Scene and Theatre Mania. Such an oversight is inexcusable - this show has been one of the highlights of this year's Fringe, and not seeing a review here, one can't help but wonder how comprehensive or useful Fringe and Purge actually is.

  3. #3

    Also hoping you get a chance to see and review "Lila: The Love Story of Radha and Krishna." DC Theatre Scene gave us five stars and called it "a must-see performance"! Two more shows this week.
