Fringe performers and like-minded sponsors

Fringe The Capital Fringe Festival kicked off yesterday in (where else?) the nation’s capital, as Washington, D.C., proudly hosts a series of “innovative performance styles and artists,” which loosely translates to theatrical presentations that don’t always make immediate sense. The event has received heavy coverage from Fringe and Purge and boasts a dizzying array of alternative sponsors, including Theater Mania,, Washington City Paper and, perhaps the mac daddy of alternative organizations, the Canadian Embassy. It’s nice to see events like this sponsored by like-minded groups (unlike, for example, the Warped Tour), and the shows do look interesting. If Andrew Ullrich’s excellent Grounded is any indication, any readers who attend will be in for a treat.
