Seattle Fringe Festival 2016


Various locations Across Seattle
Thu., Feb. 25 and Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 5 2016

Seattle Fringe Festival showcases local talent that doesn’t often get play on larger stages. This a good thing for several reasons: (1) You get to see fun shows you may have missed throughout the year, such as Sara Porkalob’s one-person performance The Dragon Lady, a hilarious and surprising romp through the life of a Filipina gangster. (2) There’s a bunch of weird stuff you’re more likely to embrace in a festival-type setting than in an evening at the thea-tah-type setting, such as the Libertinis’ Uncle Seagull, a “mash-up of burlesque, clown, dance, and drama” that they describe as a “love letter and ransom note to your favorite turn-of-the-century Russian poet Anton Chekhov!” (3) You can check out new work, such as newcomer Tré Calhoun’s Dirt + Dew, a one-act play about a guy who employs a mud suit in a summer-camp seduction. This year, the festival expands its sphere of madness, encompassing playhouses in both Capitol Hill and Queen Anne. RICH SMITH
