For those of you who already expressed interest in coming to see a fringe show with me, and for those who have not yet expressed this but are keeping it bottled up inside for whatever reason, here are my potential (not set completely in stone) plans for these first couple days of fringe:
Tonight, Friday, it’s all about Uptown.
5:30 Red Hamlet by Red Theater at Theatre Garage
Break for house managing; i’ll be facilitating box office goodyness over at Cult Status Gallery for the BYOV show The 612 by Rogues Gallery Arts. Sounds really interesting. Come buy a ticket from me; see 4 short plays plus a gallery show of visual art!
10:00 Deadline: A Choose Your Own Adventure Story by Interplanetary Appeal at Bryant-Lake Bowl (I saw these guys do choose your own adventure improv at Huge Theater a few months ago, it was really funny.)
Friday will probably finish up with some drinkinating & socializing at Moto-i (this year’s Fringe Central location).
Tomorrow, Saturday, big day on the West Bank:
1:00 Once Upon a Time in the Suburbs by Ferrari McSpeedy Theatrical Productions at U of M Rarig Thrust
2:30 Buckets and Tap Shoes by 10 Foot 5 Productions at U of M Rarig Proscenium
4:00 TBA! Too many amazing companies in this timeslot! If I think I can get there in time: Fletcher & Zenobia Save the Circus (by Edward Gorey) by Live Action Set at Mill City Museum. Or if i can’t: Disney Dethroned or Brain Fighters or Underneath the Lintel. Crapola. Please, someone tell me that you want to come see one of these shows with me and make the decision for me. I will, for the most part, yield to accompanying friend’s preferences (especially since you’re paying for a ticket and I’m not)
5:30 maybe Our Freaking Kids Show by Mainly Me Productions at U of M Rarig Thrust, or maybe taking a break, getting some food and lying in the grass somewhere.
7:00 Callahan and Lingo presents: The Last Ditch by ACM Productions at U of M Rarig Arena or possibly another attempt at getting over to Mill City for Fletcher & Zenobia & will try plan to see Allegra* & Rob’s show later in the week.*I have to put that in, Allegra’s my Fringeboss 😛
8:30 Minnesota Middle Finger by Ben San Del Presents at Theatre in the Round
Phew! I did it! I mean, I planned it. Now all that’s left is to go enjoy. Sunday I won’t be seeing shows because I will be working as a house manager at the Playwright’s Center all day long. Food donations gladly accepted. Hint hint nudge nudge.
