Think of it as the ultimate one-stop tasting menu for the annual Vancouver Fringe Festival. The Georgia Straight Fringe-for-All is a chance to sample a bunch of shows from the event’s 100-plus offerings and to get into the full-on Fringe spirit the night before the fest opens. The fast-flying format? No fewer than 40 Fringe artists have two minutes to perform a reason to see their shows—a concept as helpful as it is absurdly entertaining. But the best part may be that hilarious Fringe faves Travis Bernhardt and Chris Ross (of Chris and Travis fame, shown here) host the two-hour preview.
The Georgia Straight Fringe-for-All happens Wednesday (September 6) at Performance Works.
