A Fever for Fringe
Well, today is the start of Philly Fringe. Okay, it’s officially the 2007 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe, but that takes WAY too long to type, so I will continue to cling to the antiquated (and yet enduring) habit of calling the whole she-bang just “Philly Fringe.”
And, as I look at my stack of already-purchased tickets, and my cluster of post-its with hypothetical scheduling matrices that would get me to some additional shows, I think it’s safe to say that I’m about to go a little bit Fringe-crazy.
I’ll try to put up snapshot reactions/reviews throughout the next two weeks, but till I go to that first show, here (well, after the jump) is linkage to some of the online press about Fringe*:
Cherry Hill Courier Post: Move to the Fringe

Philadelphia Inquirer: Fringe Festival: Over the top, still and These shows are funny, shocking, and likely to have legs
