by Rachel Reiva | 8/1/09 • Hey there Fringe Goers here are the shows I’m seeing on July 31st.
Allegra Lingo: Crescendo
Writer Allegra Lingo discovers that a small start can lead to a powerful end. Inspired by the music of Aaron Copland, it’s like Fantasia, except with words instead of dancing brooms and scary demons.

I saw Allegra’s show last year and loved it. Allegra is a gifted story teller, and she never lets me down when it comes to keeping me into her story. Her new show sounds really interesting and I always like it when artist do add new elements to their craft.
Balance Theatre Project: The William Williams Effect
The true story of the last man executed by the state of Minnesota features an illicit love affair, a violent murder and a botched hanging. It’s a story that almost wasn’t told, but had resounding impact.
Now I’ve heard a lot of hype about this show. I’ve also saw the preview of it at the Fringe For All and was impressed. I’m a really big history buff, especially on Minnesota history which isn’t done often in plays. So, it will be interesting to see how they show one of the most important events in Minnesota history.
I may see a show in between, but we will see if I have enough time to squeeze one in. Happy Fringing!
