Fringe Orphans 3: The Legend of Orphans’ Gold is playing at Theatre in the Round. Fringe Orphans is like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates of the Fringe Festival-you never know what you’re gonna get. Each show rotates different performers doing skits, vignettes, and monologues. Originally, Fringe Orphans was populated by performers who didn’t get a slot in the Fringe, but this year that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Overall, this show isn’t as strong as previous years. The highlights of the show I saw were a piece called “Non-Breeders” by Scot Moore and Victoria Pyan, an excellent monologue by Ariel Leaf, and a running gag through the show with a manic toddler called “Fit in This”. But each show is different.
