Your daily roundup of Fringe reviews, tweets, and news.
“Girls Who Think They’re Hot” : “A loud, Hawaiian-shirted girl, Skrunk, comes on the scene and declares that she is, indeed, hot, and if you’re game enough to come back to her art-filled den, you can be too. We later learn she’s part of a scam to push the so-thought of drug of surrealism on unsuspecting kids, but for now, Poppy begins to take an interest.” — Erin Williams
“The Brontes” : “Set to the bluegrass and rock-inflected compositions of Steve McWilliams and Debra Buonaccorsi, ‘The Brontes’ is an impressive vehicle on which to travel into Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s imagination.” — Peter Marks

According to Fringe HQ, this year’s shows have sold 14,089 single tickets and 1,772 multi-passes. They’ll also be giving out free water today at the notoriously sweltering venues Bedroom, Redrum, the Shop and the Baldacchino Gypsy Tent, due to temperatures that the Capital Weather Gang says will reach more than 100 degrees. We’ll be under a heat advisory well into the programming time of many Fringe shows, until 9 p.m.
