Too Many Good Shows

Last year, I thought it would be really fun to get to know a lot of Fringe performers, both local and from out of town, see their shows, share the experience with others - you know, be the indie media. Now I see a problem that I think must prey upon many people in a similar position: What the hell do you go watch?

How does one decide what to see, in what order? How much coverage do you give your friends? The new kids? The kids you're a fan of? In my case I tried to start with people who had sent me emails - get their content posted first.

Fringe Programs (changes)

With less than a week until the festival, you can now pick up programs all around Orlando - I've got one from Stardust. In a seemingly typical fashion, there are errors in the program. They're correct on the Fringe Website and our individual shows pages, so don't worry if you're looking online, but make sure you double check if your show has dancing canvases, Marlon Brando, or dance/film mash-ups. CineDance only has three shows to begin with, so you don't want to miss one because of a misprint.

Free Tickets: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

I have heard of discounts for performing special feats, like Linwood Sassy's Screw You Review offering a discount to any one wearing an official Linwood Sassy t-shirt, but recently a show about a girl in love with an Orka sent me this tidbit:

2007: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner has set aside two comp tickets for each performance for winners of our Love Story essay contest. Just write about a true love story that has ended well, 250 words or less, email to < ClarionRefugees AT aol DOT com > with your first and second preference for show times.

25 Orlando Fringe Podcasts

Mark Baratelli is a freakin' Clydesdale - I don't where this guy gets the motivation. Seriously. We've spoken to him several times on our podcasts and this website, a search for 'baratelli' will show you what I mean.

Well, Mark has done it again - I knew he had produced some interviews for this year's Fringe, but today I took a look and noticed he has done 25 (twenty-five) such interviews, and a lot of them were posted just a few days ago. Good work man!

Hey everyone, I'd like to bring to your attention Blogging Fringe's coverage of individual shows - we are working hard to post links to websites, at least one photo, a decent amount of text and showtimes (still in progress, I think there are 6 of these up now). As I said before, if you find anything missing (or you'd like us to add/change something) please email < info AT bloggingfringe DOT com >.

Creative Video Ads for Improv Cabaret

Denna and Joey from P'shaw Productions have made two awesome ads for Mark Baratelli's Improv Cabaret recently.

Some shows to watch (I think)

I've just done a massive amount of work on the 2007 Shows page for the site, and I think I have some tips for you...

  1. Go International - We have a few shows coming from overseas and a fair amount from Canada - give these shows a shot.

How to Fringe

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:
