I have to put in a pitch for the Fringe Festival which starts next week and is the funnest experimental non-juried theater festival. I volunteered a bunch at it last year and intend to do so again. I’d love to get the neighbors going. The venues are very near us! on the 600 block of New York Ave, and also on same block of L St. Check the schedule. As it starts up I’ll blog about what are hot shows that people are talking about.
