International Fringe 2017: A welcome to theater from around the world coming to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival
Welcome to Philadelphia, international Fringe artists.
More engrossing, more alienating, and more disciplined than its predecessor.
Larry Shue’s 1979 farce has seen better days.
A provocative and dismaying story, conveyed through complex characters rather than through statistics and theories
What a funny, nasty, smart show.
Shakespeare made simple, and simply fun.
The pathetically unfulfilled romantic expectations! The sad characters and absurd human comedy! EgoPo nails it, and beautifully. Sketches by Chuck Schultz.
The simple tricks of the stage awe an audience of CGI-era children, showing that even something as normal as friendship can be magic.
Aaron Posner’s hilarious reinvention of The Seagull captures all of Chekhov’s laughable characters, absurdities of life, and self-references to the theater from a 21st-century perspective.
Beyond being entertaining and thought-provoking, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’s AN OCTOROON is an experience
Clare Boothe Luce saw her 1936 play as a critique of certain malicious denizens of Park Avenue. Director Lane Savadove sees more in it.
Local theater writers vote for their favorites in twelve categories!
