Fringe-For-All 2009: Part One


by Wendy Gennaula | 7/20/09 • Fringe for All #2 is tonight at the Ritz Theater. The box office opens at 6:00. The price of admission is a $4 purchase of a snazzy new 2009 Fringe Button (with a picture of the newly christened “Wobbles the Cat.”)

Kids’ Fringe and musicals were well represented at Fringe for All #1 last week. During the intermission I was regretting that I did not bring the boys. When the lights came up on part 2, the cast of Best Little Crackhouse in Philly (or Crackwhore!:the Musical) made me feel better about my choice.

The show opened with Youth Performance Company’s The Mutant Squad. This is theater by teens, for teens. They performed a rap that introduced the mutants. I look forward to seeing this show. Also, check out the added content on their artists page.

Four Humors Theater’s adaptation of Sideways Stories from the Wayside School has been on our list since the schedule went live. Tommy read the book and is curious about how they “turn it into a show.” The excerpt was very funny, but you don’t need to take my word for it. The entire three minute performance is on their artist’s page.

More to come!
