First Glance – My Shows To See At Fringe

Below is my tentative list of shows to see at this year’s Fringe. It is a long list. I don’t know if my ass can take sitting in uncomfortable chair that many times, so I seriously doubt I will make all of them. After the reviews start to come in, I’ll be switching things in and out. Not everything is going to be good, so with time an issue, I have to trim the fat at some point.

I have no great science to what shows have caught my eye. My picks are based on word of mouth, past history of the performers/companies, and the descriptions. At this point I don’t know if there will be any run away hits like Catholic Girl’s Guide was last year. This year’s schedule has several shows that are placed well to fill the seats if the momentum can work in their favor.

Well here are my picks, in alphabetical order:

  1. Alone Together
  2. Calculus: The Musical!
  3. Christmas in Bakersfield
  4. Extreme Puppet Theatre
  5. Girlfight
  6. How to Fake Clinical Depression
  7. I Do… I Think
  8. I Take it Back
  9. iLove
  10. Mad
  11. Public Espionage!
  12. The Kid in the Dark
  13. Tommy Nugent’s The Show
  14. True + False
  15. Wet Dream
