Well, did you find it? Did you go to opening night, took a chance on a show you knew nothing about (other than the show descriptions in our handy Fringe program)? Did you find Your Secret Surprise of the Fringe, the one you get to tell everyone about over drinks at Fringe Central?* Yay!
But even if you didn't find it last night, you've got the first Fringe Weekend ahead of you to find it. There's a whole buncha shows that have their opening performances, so pick out a handful, write an online review, then scurry over afterwards and talk them up at Fringe Central.
You, yes, you have a chance to become the greatest authority at Fringe '08: Somebody I Heard Talking About This!

Yuh-huh. A drawing that'll take care of lots of your 2009 theater-going needs in one handy swoop.
