Capital Fringe: Break a leg on Friday the 13th

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:

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.

Read the story — and then go see a Fringe show about love this weekend. You can find one in our full listings on the Going Out Guide.
