Art Picks: Minnesota Fringe Festival
Given that it happens during prime vacation time, it’s rather amazing that Minnesota’s annual grab-bag buffet of theater and performance has become one of the biggest and best such festivals in the world. But we are a “theater town,” after all, and actors can’t afford to go on vacations, so the result is this: 175 shows in 25 venues over 11 days, some of them quite hot. If you’re lucky, that adjective will apply to the show, not the temperature.
July 30-Aug. 9, various locations, 612-872-1212, fringefestival.org
