Is it three weeks already? Seems like the days and night blew by.
Well, even having to compete for a second time in a row with the Los Angeles Film Festival, The 2011 Hollywood Fringe had a damned good turnout and was bursting with talent. I was fortunate enough to experience some of the truly special offerings for which I feel satisfied enough to repose in the lush, vivid, haze of my theatrical jubilee for at least the next few months. Plus, there are some movies I am dying to catch up on before they leave the theatres. I will not be culture-free!
So as promised, here is a recap of my own reviews, along with the many others written by fellow journalists during this year’s run. Thank you to all involved from the players, to the volunteers, to the dedicated mascots who walked Santa Monica Blvd overdressed in temperature elevating (and I don’t mean sexy) costumes, to the audiences who did show and everyone else.
What did I learn? People everywhere are dying for an “experience.”
So go out and “GET SOME CULTURE!”
See you next year…
