Here's what we've collectively seen so far, and how we feel about it:
"The Depth of the Ocean"
"P54 Section G"
"Thanks for the Scabies, Jerkface"
"Bitter Boy's Musical Journey from Negative to Positive"
"Die, Clowns, Die!"
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
On a different topic, I'm delighted to report that the two-tiered ticketing system seems to be working well. You may remember my complaint last year about well intentioned but slow box office machinations. This year, the Fringe has introduced a two-line system, complete with eye-catching road-sign graphics. Route One is for folks with reservations; Route Two is for those buying tickets on the spot.
At last night's opening night of "Die, Clowns, Die!" the ticketing staff was working very smoothly, considering it was their first night out. And the two-line setup made the wait both reasonable and manageable for everybody.
