It seems like just yesterday we were sweating through our clothes under the Baldacchino tent, watching "1814! The War of 1812 Rock Opera" during the Capital Fringe Festival. But now that the weather is starting to cool down it's time for another dose of DIY theater. The smaller, more manageable festival, the fifth annual fallFringe, runs Nov. 1 through 17 and tickets are on sale today.
Among the 13 shows are seven from the most recent summer fest, including Brynn Tucker's one-woman show "A Guide to Dancing Naked," which won the award for best dance and physical theater; and director's award co-recipient "Disco Jesus and the Apostles of Funk." The other half of the shows are from past Fringers, who created new works just for the festival. Not A Robot Theatre Co., which also took home a director's award for "Clocks," returns with "He Smokes With Mirrors."
Meanwhile, WSC Avant Bard, which lost its performance space in Artisphere's black box theater last year, finds a stage at Fort Fringe with "There Is a Happiness That Morning Is."
Tickets are $20, or $15 if you hung onto your 2013 Fringe button. For more details and the full schedule visit the Fringe Festival Web site.
