I went to six shows presented by the New York International Fringe Festival over the weekend, and they were all good, every last one of them. Alas, I can’t tell you which ones just yet, because I’ll be reviewing them in this Friday’s Wall Street Journal. But I can say that the festival runs through Sunday, and that if you live in or near New York, you’d be well advised to check out at least a few of its offerings.
The New York Times has already reviewed a number of Fringe Festival shows (their selection criteria, by the way, look to be about as random as mine), and two of their favorites will also be figuring prominently in my column on Friday, so you might want to check out their theater page and see if any of the recommendations ring your bell.
For more information on the Fringe Festival, including synopses of and photos from all 200-plus shows, go here and start browsing. I can’t promise that you’ll hit the jackpot, but I did it six times in a row, which ought to count for something.
