in Edmonton, is definitely Fringe Season!
When else do you have your choice of over 150 different theatre productions, street performers from around the world, and so many green onion cakes/mini donuts it makes my tummy hurt just thinking about it!
Since there are so many shows to choose from, it can sometimes be overwhelming- even for serious theatre goers. Figuring out what shows to see is always an important part of the Fringe season.
So how do you separate the hits, from the flops?
1.Word of mouth - Ask around!
2. Knowing what kind of theatre gets you going- don't set yourself up for failure!
3. Reviews - keeping in mind it's just one persons opinion
4. Be weary of posters. Looking at posters is always fun, but can be a risky way of deciding!
What are you looking forward to this Fringe?
More fringe show buzz to come!
