What I Saw at Capital Fringe

Once more, there were dozens and dozens of shows this year at Capital Fringe, this time in churches in and around Southwest D.C., already being overrun by All-Star Game activities and the opening of a new soccer stadium. I wrote about a few of them for The Washington Post.

Among them were opera and dance, a high school response to Parkland and a whole lot of one-man shows including:

  • One in which a man copes with the heartbreak of part-time fatherhood with flashbacks of his own life.
  • Another entertaining¬†one about an overbearing mother and addiction (scroll down).
  • A mildly amusing one about his own medical maladies (scroll further down).
  • Four operatic scenes with a live orchestra.
  • A theatrical piece¬†involving movement and audience participation.
  • A satire on contemporary racial issues and advertising, with a nod to Melville (scroll down)
  • A high school playwright and largely teenage cast react to the spate of school shootings (scroll down).
