After two weeks of dozens of shows and the usual cross-city sprawl, the Capital Fringe Festival pulls back this weekend with a select group of hit shows extended at the Logan Fringe Arts Space and the neighboring Atlas Performing Arts Center. Thursday through Sunday, audiences get a last crack at 18 acts.

The “Best Of” roster:

“Joe Charnitski’s Funeral,” “The Laramie Project,” “Life: A Comic Opera in Three Short Acts,” “Numesthesia,” “Orson the Magnificent: The Magic of Orson Welles,” “Paper,” “The Regulars,” “Tiresias’s Tits” and “Wit and Wrath: The Life and Times of Dorothy Parker.”
