Fringe Festival (the Midwest's largest performing arts festival) before this year. This may seem strange coming from a theater geek like myself, but I've found the huge list of shows to be overwhelming. How do you know what to see? But this year I decided to just pick a few shows and go. I have a five-show Fringe marathon day planned for next weekend, but after I ordered my tickets I kept hearing about other shows that sounded interesting. So it's ending up to be more than just one day (as it should). Next year I'm definitely getting a ten-show pass (or two!).
