Fringe Dwellers

Pioneer Press writers will be reviewing dozens of shows during this year's Fringe Festival. While traipsing from show to show, they'll have eyes and ears open to notable moments, odd encounters and unusual events. Those observations will be recorded here.

Open the floodgates!

I've been in touch with Ever-Dutiful Deb, who's been wrangling Fringe reviews all the livelong day. She tells me that the onslaught of reviews today is overwhelming the space we have available in Sunday's paper.

So, the bad news is that not everything that our phalanx of reviewers saw today will be in tomorrow's paper. Boo, limitations of newsprint.

But the good news is that most of what we've seen today has made it onto the web. Yay, unlimited bandwidth!

You can check out our OnStage page, or here's a quick peek on most of what we saw, and how we liked it:
