Daily Fringe #5

Minnesota Fringe

Take note: Live Action Set, presenting "Deviants," has cancelled tonight's 7 p.m. performance due to injury. So far the remaining shows will run as scheduled.

Daily Fringe #5

From what we saw Monday, things are hopping! Of course, that fits with the 10 percent ticket increase we saw on opening weekend. And the now nearly 1,100+ audience reviews. Yay!

This year, the venues are grouped close together, many within walking distance. Heck, the Rarig has four theaters in the same building! So, consider the idea of walking, biking, or taking Mass Transit to the Fringe. Some tools to help:

Get walking directions on Google Maps: For example, Rarig to the Southern is just ten little minutes.

MetroTransit's NexTrip gives you up to the minute info on where the next bus is, in addition to a search function that will help you plan your route.

Biking! The Fringe program has suggested bike routes. MetroTransit buses and trains have bike racks that allow you to get to more distant venues and bring your bike along.

So very Fringe green!

Your pals,
Bill and Matt

A special request: On Saturday, an artists at Rarig misplaced a MiniDV videotape of her performance. The tape is small, in a clear plastic case and clearly labeled "Fringe 08." If you happen upon it, just drop it off to at a box office. Thanks!

Bid on the prints at eBay.

Local artist, Visible Fringe alumnus and friend of us all John Largaespada has graciously donated four digital prints to Fringe. John specializes in photoillustrations that are a little strange, a little haunting and entirely fascinating. And he's interpreted the now-famous Fringe kitty:

Their names are (from the left in the larger print): Pumpkin Seed, Bobo and Boo.

P.S. Here's your Easter Egg for the day. Just in case you need a Fringe date.

P.P.S. Here's another one you've probably seen. We've had it stuck in our heads for a few days. Need to get it out.
