EN­TER STAGE RIGHT

Where Toronto - - Hot Dates -

Another sea­son of cut­ting-edge and ex­per­i­men­tal pro­duc­tions re­turns with the Toronto Fringe Fes­ti­val (page 38), an an­nual in­die stage event that is as in­no­va­tive as it is quirky. More than 1,000 artists take part in more than 150 shows, in­clud­ing Hugh and I from Bad Neigh­bour Pro­duc­tions (pic­tured), at sev­eral dozen venues. Visit the Fringe Club fes­ti­val head­quar­ters in the lot be­hind Hon­est Ed’s (581 Bloor St. W.) for free pro­gram­ming, a beer tent and food ven­dors. This year, a new Fringe app brings the event’s essen­tials, in­clud­ing show­times and other box of­fice de­tails, di­rectly to your smart­phone. Var­i­ous venues, tick­ets $10; call 416-966-1062 to buy or visit fringe­toronto.com for a com­plete lineup.
