Support The Stranger

Now is the time to get familiar with genius. Starting with the August 20 film showcase and continuing through to the September 17 performance showcase, the Frye will host five Wednesdays featuring Stranger arts editors interviewing and sharing the work of this year’s Genius Award nominees. Things kick off on August 20, when Charles Mudede and I take the stage at the Frye auditorium with actor Paul Eenhoorn, screenwriter Bob Nelson, and filmmaker Drew Christie.

Last year’s showcases were revelatory, and these will be too. Bonus: Admission includes one genius cocktail. Go here for tickets and full info on the Frye's Five Nights of Genius—and hurry, they all sold out fast last year!
