Fringeworthy

Open Thread! Raaaarrrgggghhh!

Dearest Fringe people,

At this point, we've reviewed many dozens of shows, aired our somewhat-considered opinions about the craft of criticism, pondered the pitfalls of inebriated game-show participation, waxed semi-historical, and waded into a debate that has lots of people pissed off for different reasons. Success! And we still have one more weekend.

But what about your Fringe? Loved a show? Hated one? Heard some juicy cocktail talk at the Baldacchino Gypsy Tent? Say so in the comments.

    I saw 25 shows and of them most highly recommend Cecily and Gwendolyn's Fantastical Balloon Ride (sadly closed), Illuminopolis, Pandora: A Tragicomic Greek Romp, Manifesto!, Sisters of Ellerly Hollow, On the Rag to Riches, and They're Just Makin' That Crap Up. Cabaret XXX was really fun too :)

    Do not miss IKILL. It's one of the best shows in this year's festival (along with the now closed but hopefully remounted Squirrel or The Origin of a Species) and one of the few movement pieces. It's beautifully executed by an ensemble of young performers around theme of war, death and its effects on us in a Japanese physical movement aesthetic. They've created some really stunning images accompanied by a great soundscape of recorded and song/chanted pieces. REALLY SUPERB. BRAVO!

    Someone was overheard after On the Rag to Riches:

    "B#tch made me laugh so hard I think I may have to kill someone later. Shiiit."

    I don't know what that means, but I certainly know it's why I do theatre.

  • I made out with Jonathan L. Fishcer and all I got was the knowledge that the L stands for Lattelbreyerson which is a weird name

    Are there closed threads on this site? lol
