Today, especially, would NOT be a good day to tell a Fringe performer “Good luck.” Adhere to the age-old theater superstition of ”Break a leg” on a day that is especially superstitious: Friday the 13th.
Our Fringe crew has a few reviews coming up today: “The Circle,” ”BFF,” “A Day in the Life of Miss Hiccup,” and “Colony.” But before we get to those, here are a few tweeted #fringereviews that we liked:
Trash homelessness religion race gentrification & 60 yrs of DC history from a nice Jewish boy native. Don't miss DC Trash. #fringereviews— Elizabeth Engel (@ewengel) July 13, 2012
And to respond to a tweeted question:
NO, we do not want you to tweet during the show. If you want proof, check out our Fringe team’s previous writings on the subject: “Tweet seats,” a rant, and a Twitter theater controversy. Be a good audience!
Lastly, get an early peek at an upcoming story about a couple who will get married at this year’s Fringe Festival, in a performance of Faction of Fools’ “Tales of Marriage and Mozzarella” next week. Thad Brown and Carrie Suggs met at Gallaudet University in theater class, so a Fringe wedding is just their style. You’ll love them because:
• They have matching septum piercings.
• Suggs decorates Brown with toys while he is sleeping, takes photos of him, and posts them to her blog.
• They were cast in a production of “Charlotte’s Web” shortly after they started dating. Imagine Farmer Zuckerman flirting backstage with Charlotte — those were their roles.
