    On the Fringe

    This month has given us the debut of the Capital Fringe Festival here in our little old capital town. It features all sorts of productions and performances by local and not-so-local fringe artists:
    From July 20-30, 2006 downtown Washington DC will come to life with the inaugural Capital Fringe Festival. This celebration of the performing arts will bring together nearly 100 performing artists/groups who will present more than 400 performances in over 30 venues within 11 days!

    ... Performances will take place in more than 20 traditional and non traditional performance venues and will include performing artists producing in theater, dance, music, poetry, spoken word, puppetry and art forms that are simply unclassifiable. Each venue will be filled with multiple performances everyday, creating one of the cities busiest and most exciting outlets for the performing arts.
    And what am I seeing? Yes, the infamous One Man Star Wars Trilogy (kinda like Reduced Shakespeare for twinkies, geeks and others like me who remember the movie from when it was first released in 1977). Yes, Saturday.

    Yes, I am appropriately geekily excited about it. And hope to make some of the other performances too.
