Best of the fest
A quick preview of best bets appearing at this year’s Fringe Festival
Published: April 21, 2011
I Love You (we’re f*#ked): 55BC presents Kevin Thornton in this musical about a gay man recounting his love life. The preview audience only saw a video commercial for the show, but this guy’s funny.
Any Title That Works: Paul Strickland presents philosophical musings in this thoughtful comedy monologue. Who’d have imagined it?
My Friend in a Sketch Show:
Minimalistic Theatre of Orlando, featuring Jim Doyle and others, do a show about writing a sketch show. A take-no-prisoners satire sure to offend everyone.
Suckers: A Freaky Little Musical:
Zombie Productions – a collaboration between Fringe veterans Tod Kimbro and Michael Marinaccio – presents a reworking of Kimbro’s terrific score for this goth-rock musical.
Bitches of the Kingdom: The Oops Guys bring this musical review featuring storybook princesses complaining about the exploitation they suffered while starring in Disney movies. Tell the truth, can there ever be enough shows that skewer Disney?
Finally, although it wasn’t shown as part of the preview, Michael Wanzie and friends will be staging [title of show], an Obie-winning, off-Broadway hit that made it to Broadway and beyond. Sure to sell-out.
Get your buttons, mark you calendars and get ready to Fringe. YEAHHHH!
