Best of the Fest
Well, if I'd remembered to turn in my ballot at the end of the Fringe, here's what would have been tabulated...
(Of the 32 shows I ended up seeing, 35 if you count the three times I went back again to Gilgamesh, Iowa...)
Best Visible Fringe Artist
I only saw a handful but of what I saw, I'd have to say...
Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf: The Kamikaze and the Chameleon
Again, I only saw a couple, but...
Beauty and the Beast by Ballet of the Dolls
Spirit of the Fringe
Staggering Toward America
This show embodies the Fringe Spirit in so many ways - a really amazing solo show that was written and performed by a gifted storyteller, about a topic that needs discussing, that really moved its audiences, even cynics, to tears as well as laughter, that might not find its deservedly wider audience were it not for a festival (series of festivals) like our Fringe.
say it with me...
