Your daily roundup of Fringe reviews, tweets, and news.
“The Every Fringe Show You Want To See in One Fringe Show Fringe Show” : “You don’t have to be a seven-year veteran audience member to get the self-referential jokes of “The Every Fringe Show You Want to See in One Fringe Show Fringe Show” because it sticks to some basic and not very insidery punch lines: The theaters are hot and sweaty! Many male actors are gay! Fringe shows are wackier than normal theater!” — Maura Judkis
“The Freshman 15/Life in Transition” : “Cliches about party schools and the college “bubble” abound. Stereotypes are trotted out — vegans go to Oberlin! Undergrads wear North Face fleeces! JMUgirls are “blond and pretty . . . but, like, empty inside!”-- and are sent away unexamined. There are plenty of cheap swipes at the usual suspects (sorority girls, frat guys, wealthy students) and the predictable deification of others (students on scholarship, recent grads drowning in debt).” — Jessica Goldstein
