I’m a little late to the party: Many of these Patrons’ Picks were announced yesterday, when I was at the Fringe all day and night and couldn’t get to my computer to post them.
For those of you who don’t know, the Patrons’ Picks shows at the Fringe are those that sold the most tickets in their respective venues and are awarded a final show on Monday, Memorial Day, before they pack up for next year.

Fringe review: ‘The Great American Trailer Park Musical,’ TheaterWorks Florida, Davenport, FL
