The Capital Fringe Festival staged a ballet unlike any other.

This year's Fringe is more comfortable indoors. But it still gets its knees dirty.

Shows such as "I Am the Gentry" and "Twelfth Night: A Musical Remix" are only partly the thing as the festival settles into new territory.

Now in its 10th year, the nearly month-long festival has relocated to new digs on Florida Avenue NE.

Broadway veteran Wesley Taylor considers playing the high-energy role "a nice work vacation."

Chill out with Jazz in the Garden, cheer for the first-place Nationals, fill up on strawberries and watch the Memorial Day Concert and Parade.

Energized businesses. Hip restaurants. Art Galleries. The pulse of this historic district on 14th Street has quickened.
