My Fringe: Veteran Festival-goer Brett Mapp shares his day by day Fringe schedule

Brett Mapp has been attending Fringe Festivals since the early days of the event, when it was a small collection of performances in Old City. Currently the director of operations for the Old City District municipal authority, Brett has been a self-described “hardcore Fringer” since 2005. He’s one of Leadership Philadelphia‘s Creative and Emerging Connectors. He serves on the board of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Advocates and Flashpoint Theatre Company, is one of the founding members of Philly Stake and The Brothers’ Network, and is the only person to ever serve on committees for both the Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia and Dance USA/Philadelphia.

He won’t have much time for all that in the first few weeks of September, however. His schedule is jam-packed, with 30 shows over 20 days. He knows his Fringe, so his schedule would be a good starting point for anyone considering what to see. Here’s where you can find him:
