Every year I locate as many video promos related to Orlando Fringe Festival. This year I found a TV show that airs on the local Orange TV cable channel featuring a documentary about Dog Powered Robot, and a short feature about Fringe 21 with Michael Marinaccio and Genevieve from Kid's Fringe.
The very first video in the list is a recap from the Fringe at the Hard Rock fundraiser earlier this year. It was a great spectacle, and the recap hardly does it justice, but not for lack of trying by the filmmaker, who did a great job.
There are also promos for local shows like Double Happiness and Happy Pink Girl, as well as out-of-town acts like Gemma Wilcox, A Mind Full of Dopamine, and Kurt Fitzpatrick. All the videos I could find are here.
Edit: New videos added above, and now a Vimeo playlist as well.
Full days at the festival are so awesome because you get to see so many shows. The night ended really strong with:
A character named Caroline makes a commitment to herself and goes on her own honeymoon for one in the hilarious and entertaining ONEymoon at the Brown venue in the 2012 Orlando Fringe.
Tonya Jone Miller plays a character based on her mother in the dramatic and gripping Threads: The True Story of an Indiana Farm Girl in Vietnam in the Patron's Room.
New York's own 77-year-old ukulele playing Commedianne tells us her fringe crush. See I Married a Nun in the Patron's Room.
Yes, It's finally here! That is to say, Orlando Fringe is here. I would like to present the following list in no particular order, even though it says "top 5". This is also based on my experience of day 1, not of everything about the day.
You'll notice that both shows I saw are from out of town (out of the US, in fact). Here's a tip: go to see any National or International act on the opening weekend of the festival, (that is, people who are not from Florida or the US). The great ones will all sell out next week, as word of mouth spreads. You can be ahead of the curve by taking a chance on an out-of-towner!
The 2012 Fringe Festival Producer tells us all that is new at the 21st Orlando Fringe, and shares his Fringe Crush.
Lots of news!
