Real Time update

Good news for a good show that passed through this year's Orlando Fringe. Real Time, which just ran during the Toronto Fringe, is getting an extended run this week at the Diesel Playhouse.

Read the Torontoist's summary of the show. And check out their other Fringe reviews. You never know what might find its way here next year.

WHiRR booth closed on Monday

If you walk past the line of tents outside of the Shakespeare Festival, it will look like a ghost town. A few of the booths have been unmanned for most of the Fringe thus far and the rest will be vacant until the weekend. We at WHiRR are taking a day-long break to recover from the heat and long hours of the weekend. We'll be back on Tuesday (hopefully) with more one-inch buttons and other robot-y goodness. Our booth has moved closer to the building entrance so you can spend even more time with us before dashing off to the next show.

Paint Chips - random trivia

I haven't seen the show, but I hear that Voci set Paint Chips to a few tracks off Ken Nordine's Colors album, a collection of humorous word jazz. Don't let the phrase "word jazz" scare you off. Nordine has that great 1960s voiceover voice (in fact, I believe he was one).

I was told that neither Nordine nor the album title is mentioned in the program, so pass it along to anyone who inquires.

Visual Fringe

On a break from the booth, I took some time to check out Visual Fringe. The VF artwork is on display throughout the OSF lobby, the Patrons' Room, and the Edyth Bush lobby at the Rep. Much of the artwork would intimidate my robots, so it's best that we're outdoors with the riff-raff.

My favorites of the bunch were "Breaking Free" by Janine L.

Note to Ives fans

WHiRR is not affiliated with Jester Theater Company, but if you're in a David Ives mood and you're seeing (f)Ives, you might be interested in some artwork we have for sale.

I have six original prints inspired by Ives' All in the Timing. The prints were created to display in the lobby during Orlando Theatre Project's production in March. If you're already an Ives fan and/or can't attend Fringe, we have the prints available for sale online.

WHiRR @ Fringe

WHiRR is setting up a booth outside of the Orlando Fringe Festival. We'll be set up for the duration of the festival with artwork and merchandise and treats for the eyes. If you're in the area, drop by and say hello. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Tell strangers you meet in a parking garage.

We're presenting a variety of new products not yet available in the online shop. Get a sneak peek before the rest of the internet.
