There are six days left of the Fringe Festival and the Enquirer has a mid-fringe article today that postulates (Ooo….big word) that Fringe is already a hit. At this point I am sure the entire Fringe staff is knocking on every piece of wood or simulated wood product inside the Know Theatre.
I can’t quibble with calling Fringe a Hit. All of my experiences had audiences quite strong at nine of the ten shows I’ve seen so far. Today’s through Wednesday are traditionally the slow period, so don’t judge anything by Monday’s or Tuesday numbers. Some shows have completed their runs and left town, some just arrived.
