The Capital Fringe Festival, Washington’s annual summer marathon of quirky stage productions, kicks off Thursday and runs through July 29. With dozens of options for attendees to pick from, selecting the best shows to see can be somewhat challenging. Luckily, for those feeling overwhelmed, Scoutmob D.C. has compiled a list of 10 Capital Fringe Festival productions, including playwright Brian Feldman’s “BFF,” that are not to be missed.

“This one’s not just out of the box; it’s reinventing the box into a race car or a secret castle or whatever else your imagination allows. With a 50-person cap per show, er, experience, ‘BFF’ will take its attendants on some intense “friend-building” excursions. What does that mean? We’re not sure, but we’re certainly curious. Run time: 120 minutes.”
