Get a Grip
Ingrid Garner was worried about slipping and falling on the mat used for the stage at Venue 4 during her performances of Eleanor’s Story — An American Girl in Hitler’s Germany. So, someone told her to use a cheese grater on the soles of her shoes to create a grip. It worked and she’s now better able to walk around the stage.
There are a few extra shows coming up in the next few days.
Tonight at midnight at the Tom Hendry Warehouse is the annual performers cabaret. Performers present a short scene that is something different than their Fringe show(s).
Friday at midnight at Wee Johnny’s is J.D. Renaud’s Midnight Show.
Next week, Chase Padgett is remounting his first Fringe hit 6 Guitars July 27 and 28 at the Park Theatre.
Also next week, speaking of Fringe hits, JOSEPHINE will be remounted on July 28 at PTE.
Monday is usually a pretty slow day at the Fringe. Some people take it easy after a busy weekend of fringing. I was shocked to see big crowds at multiple Monday afternoon shows. I think the big crowds were caused by the closing of venues 1, 3, 5 and 7 for the day, so there were less shows for people to choose from, which meant bigger crowds for those shows that had performances. We’ll see if the same thing happens today with the closing of venues 2, 4, 6 and 8.
Quote of the Day
“If you watch the History Channel, you’ll get the impression that a lot of history is about middle aged men searching for gold.”
