Spread the Word

The Fringe is one of those unusual places where it's OK to talk to strangers.

The first time it happened to me last night, I was kind of taken aback. But then I warmed to my subject. It was nice to be asked what I'd seen, what I'd heard good things about. And it was good to hear in return about shows that others had seen.

So don't keep the good news to yourself. Spread the word.

Shy though I be, I'm going to try to be more pro-active and interactive about it. So, ladies, I'm not hitting on you. I'm gay. Gentlemen, heck, I may be hitting on you, but just humor me, tell me about a Fringe show you loved or hated and I'll go away without asking for a phone number.

Talk to strangers, people. Otherwise, you might miss something.
