The 31st Annual Victoria Fringe Festival is upon us and reached the mid-way point. New shows are coming and they will be previewed tonight at the Metro Studio 10pm.
In what I saw over the past couple of days, I’m offering an index of the reviews to which I have published on Otaku’s sister blog, Two Hungry Blokes, instead of copying the content over. If any of them sound interesting, most of these shows are touring and will soon hit a local Fringe Theatre Festival near you. Please check your local arts bulletin for the nearest city and dates.
After this island town event, these acts will be at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, running from September 7 to 17th. Happening at the same time is the San Francisco Fringe to which some of these acts may head.
