2011 capital fringe festival

2011 capital fringe festival

Staff Writter

If you like theater , you may need to check out the Capital Fringe festival. This event has a host of plays awaiting your attendance.

"Pandora: A Tragicomic Greek Romp" » Studio Theatre, 1501 14th St. NW The Impressionable Players managed to make a choose-your-own-adventure version of "Romeo and Juliet" work last year, and the same team has assembled for a not-so-interactive go at the ancient Greek myth of "Pandora." If it's half as funny as last year's offering, it'll be better than almost anything else you'll see at Fringe this year.

"The Oregon Trail: Quest for the West" » The Mountain at Mount Vernon Church, 900 Massachusetts Ave. NW We haven't seen this, but our juvenile brains are flashing back to thousands of hours whiled away playing that video game on our ancient Macintosh. This live musical is "interactive," which we assume means some audience members will lose a wagon axle and die of dysentery.

"Manifesto!" » Studio Theatre, 1501 14th St. NW Happenstance Theatre's "Handbook for Hosts" was one of the highlights of last year's Fringe â€" suave, hilarious and well-produced. It's really not clear what "Manifesto!" will entail, other than audience participation and probably a lot of shouting. It promises dadaism, so whatever happens will make a statement by refusing to make a statement.

Baldacchino Gypsy Tent Bar » 607 New York Ave. NW Now in its sixth year, the Fringe fest had a beer garden before beer gardens were cool. But this year's bar promises to knock it out of the park with six beers and Prosecco on tap. You can also enjoy bar food â€" we recommend the turkey burgers.

The Free Store » The Apothecary, 1013 7th St. NW It's like something out of a children's book: a shop filled with things you can just take! It's great to browse while you're hanging around Fringe Central between shows, plus you can donate your old books, music and clothes if you're looking to get rid of some stuff.
