Are you primed for the summer’s annual zany, sweaty smorgasboard of theater?

The Capital Fringe Festival just announced this year’s performers, so you can get a peek before tickets go on sale on June 18. Among the doozies we found perusing the catalog?

• “BFF,” a show that has just one audience member for each performance — making conceptual artist Brian Feldman your virtual BFF for a sure-to-be-awkward 120 minutes or till you politely excuse yourself, whichever comes first.

• The return of Dog & Pony’s “Beertown,” which just got some love from theater critic Peter Marks in the Summer Arts Preview.

• The singing wonder that is Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s is back too, with The Brontes.

Want more? Here are listings and descriptions of the nearly 130 Capital Fringe offerings from the Going Out Guide.
