NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe Preview -

Con­trary to what a cer­tain “B.I.T.T.E.R.” anony­mous let­ter writer to NOW im­plied ear­lier this year, the theatre glit­terati do not seal deals in cor­doned-off VIP sec­tions of the Fringe Club. Rather, the beer tent (as it’s more com­monly known) is a ca­sual, fun place to un­wind, grab a drink and talk about… what else? Theatre. This is where you trade sto­ries about what to see (or skip), what shows are sell­ing out quickly and maybe, af­ter some liq­uid courage, flirt with that theatre artist you’ve ad­mired for years. The nightly pro­gram­ming doesn’t seem as ex­ten­sive this year, but look for live con­certs, awards pre­sen­ta­tions and even a free ice cream event on open­ing night.
