Fringe venue has new grassroots sponsors

Here’s a little item that put a smile on my face:

The new sponsors of the Fringe’s green venue this year are the three biggest Fringe fans I know: Myron Blattner, Ed Anthony and David Horgan.

Myron Blattner

Just about everyone who spends time at Fringe knows that these three guys see and enjoy more shows than anybody else. (They have me beat, and last year I saw 50-some.)

So apparently they’ve pooled their cash to support the Fringe. I love it. Thanks, guys.

(I wish I had pictures of David and Ed, but they’re shy. Look for them at the Fringe.)

Orlando Fringe needs you for its 20th-reunion photo

It’s the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival’s 20th anniversary this year. Some of us remember it when it was just a baby, and we remember when you didn’t have to put “Theatre” in its name because we all knew there was a whole lot of theater going on.

Anyway, the celebrations are already starting, and one of them is a so-called class picture to fit in with this year’s theme, which is the 20th high-school reunion.

The group photo is being shot at 4:30 p.m. Monday Feb. 7 in front of the Lowndes Shakespeare Center in Loch Haven Park. Any Fringe fans are welcome.
