(A repost from my MySpace which is set to public during the Fringe but will go back to private after, so if you please feel free to request me as a friend! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, you'll need that too ;) Enjoy!)
Another night at the Orlando Fringe Festival. I got to see all of the shows I wanted! TJ ( I like to call Tee-jah, one word) Dawe great as always!
In Beth's latest MySpace blog, she leaves a review for the play currently at the Parliament House's Lightfoot Theater The Little Dog Laughed (directed by David Lee).
Beth praises the Parliament House, saying "No other bar in town has been anywhere near as successful in doing so to showcase theatre."
She also gives us a great run-down of what to expect from the community in the next month.
Upcoming Things to do, audition for, see, participate in etc...

There's a conversation about to get started on Beth Marshall's MySpace about juried vs. non-juried festivals. She quotes and article from the Edmonton (Alberta, Canada) newspaper. Here's a bit of it:
In Edinburgh, venuemanagers choose their plays. Professional work, which deserves a wider audience,debuts at the festival.
Resident curmudgeon Linwood Sassy posted some link bait for me... I'll bite!
Dammit! I never got the friggen chance to reveal MY "Cringe Crush" at this year's fest. (Some of us are Entertainment LEGENDS and had SOLD OUT shows to do, ya bastards!)
I loved Poofy du Vey. A woman in a clown nose turns me ON!
Oh...and thanks a bunch to you folks that crushed ME.
This meme is traveling around MySpace, so I thought I'd release it to the rest of the web. Written by Beth Marshall, it is a list of guidelines for experiencing the Orlando Fringe.
From Beth's Fringe FAQs blog on MySpace:
Here is a basic FRINGE 101 guide of FAQ's to help aid you in having a positive FRINGE experience. Please pass this email along to all your friends. Post it on your blogs, newsletters, websites or wherever you want.
