Seems like the Fringe just ended, but general manager George Wallace has all kinds of stuff, small and large, planned for future months — fundraisers, happy hours and so on. The Fringe lottery will be held in November, with artist applications available Sept. 1. And the Fringe is hot on the trail of a new executive producer. George tells you all about that and more, so keep reading:

Looking for Fringe reviews? They’re here.

For those of you who subscribe to this blog, I realized over the weekend that my Fringe reviews aren’t coming to you in the normal way. It’s not interesting enough to explain in full, but the technicalities of the website don’t allow for the email that should be coming to you when I post each new review.

So if you’re interested in reading my Fringe reviews (there are 19 there now, and six or seven more to come before the end of the day), just go to my home page and look down the column on the right-hand side. You’ll see all the Fringe reviews listed there. Happy reading!

The Fringe waxes poetic

Fringe fans who appreciate the word — and don’t we all? — may have already made the acquaintance of the festival’s poetry offerings. (It’s hard to sit in the beer tent on a Saturday night and not be part of the proceedings.)

But for those of you who may have missed it, here’s a guide to the Fringe’s poetry circuit — the Poetry Smackdown, the Toast-Off and the Fringe Poetry Vending Machine. The description comes from Tod Caviness, my friend and former Sentinel colleague, who makes much of this happen:

Orlando Fringe tickets now on sale

Last night’s Fringe Preview show raised $9,100 — more than $3,000 more than the festival expected — and gave some patrons a taste of what’s to come May 19-30.

For them, and for those of us who stay away so we’ll be surprised in May, Fringe tickets are now on sale. You can get them at the (still hard to read after all these years) Fringe website. Or you can read about the shows here and then go on to the Fringe website to make your purchases. I recommend the latter.
