Fringe is near…

The brilliant Fringe Festival has begun on the corner of Dauphine and Press. And although it is not in the Quarter, it’s near and so what’s it to you if I review it here? (Sorry – cocktail hour has been delayed; someone’s a little frayed…)
At that corner, you’ll find the Free-For-All Tent and Fringe headquarters, but to see the over 60 collective artistic expressions known as Fringe, you’ll need to be mobile and able to read a map. The venues for performances that run the gamut from the smutty to the sublime are held in lovely or maybe lowdown places throughout downtown. Running through the weekend, get thee to Press and get your tickets to as many performances as you can stand. Bring a flask, an extra jacket and maybe a flashlight (advice from an annual fester) and expect to be dazzled.
