What’s Hot in Central Florida on WMFE 90.7 FM this weekend is one thing comprised of well over 100 things - it’s the Orlando Fringe Festival, the longest running Fringe Fest in the US. There are so many shows about which I’ve heard great things by trusted sources that I couldn’t fit nearly all of them into the broadcast but some of the ones I’m vying for - click the links for descriptions - The 39 Steps,, Blue and Tod: in the Black, The Boy Who Stole the Sun, Celebrity Match Game: The Musical (and a Game Show), A Field Guide to the Gays, God is a Scottish Drag Queen, Key of E, Little Miss Fringe Festival, Loon, Michael Winslow: Noizeyman Featuring Jose Sarduy, Misa Flamenca, Pechakucha Orlando, Pretending Thigns Are a Cock, Serving Bait to Rich People, Stayin Alive III, and Underneath the Lintel by Glen Berger.
Got to see a little preview of Key of E,, that made me look forward to seeing the rest of it. Also having seen God is a Scottish Drag Queen, and previous incarnations of Celebrity Match Game: The Musical (and a Game Show) and Little Miss Fringe Festival, I can tell you they’re all comedy gold and if you don’t see them you’ll be plagued by your friends talking about them for months afterward, laughing and laughing and saying “Remember this part?” “Remember that part?” and you’ll feel like a shunned Amish. Don’t get shunned: click for tickets instead.
