Today marks the beginning of the 2014 Seattle Fringe Festival: 22 productions over five days at four locations including Annex Theatre and the Northwest Film Forum. Promising-sounding bets this evening include nervy and hilarious local solo performer Keira McDonald teaming up with NYC performer James Judd in Breathe Normally; award-winning, LA-based fringe darlings Sound and Fury bring their Hamlet and Juliet; and a 10-playwright group, corralled by Stephanie Timm, exploring the idea of passing judgment on strangers in What You Think You Know.
