This and that from the Fringe

Here, minus the pretty graphics, is the latest newsletter from the Fringe, including (at the bottom) its drive to raise $20 from a whole lot of people to support itself in its 20th-anniversary year. If you’ve got $20, think about giving it to the Fringe.


July is officially here! It is a busy month at Fringe. We are getting ready to launch our applications for the 20th Annual Orlando Fringe, which will be available online September 1, 2010.

Today is the official Kick-Off of the $20 for Fringe 20 campaign. Please share this information with your friends and family!

Here’s my first annual Best of the Fest list — the best shows I’ve seen so far (with an addition from my co-critic Dean Johnson). These are don’t-miss shows, and I suspect there may be more to come during the Fringe’s final days. Keep a lookout.

From the Fringe: ‘6 Guitars’

Fringe review: ‘6 Guitars,’ Chase Padgett Productions, Orlando

By Dean Johnson

Six guitar stylists, one lone performer: Chase Padgett makes you believe you’re really seeing six different men – 87-year-old bluesman Tyrone; metal rocker Michael, 20; Mexican classical guitarist Ortega, 37; Kentucky country boy Rupert, 27; too-cool jazzman Wesley, 25; and sappy folkie Peter, no age given.
