The Fringe is bursting with incredible shows this year, a few of which you’ve read about here at Gia On The Move.  And there’s still time to get a few more in.  Get your tickets.  Shows continue every day and evening until June 24th!  Visit:  http://www.HollywoodFringe.org. Here’s a small re-cap of what I’ve experienced so far plus a bit more:

This Vicious Minute @ Elephant Stages

You will not have your heart ripped out of your chest.  You will not wrench, wretch, wring your hands in ceaseless torment.  You will not cry. You will not bleed. Ben Moroski has already done that.

Ghost Light @ The Underground Theatre

As if beer, pot, frats boys, sorority girls and a oujia board on a stormy Halloween wasn’t enough, that darn ghost had to show up and ruin everything!

Doomsday Cabaret @ Lounge Theatre 1

In a satyr of “apocalyptic proportions” introduced by an ominously bizarre, expressionist, overhead, pre-show video of peasants, animals, chanting and windstorms, nine obsessive, sub-culture doomsayers gather together at the San Bernadino Community Center to wait for the end of the world, prophesy, theorize, get laid and sell books.

Confessions of the World’s Worst Missionary @ Studio A

Faith is no match for the heartbreaking reality of poverty, racism, HIV/AIDS and the myriad of crises of post-apartheid life in South Africa.

I Get Knocked Down @ Studio C Artists

Seven archetypal characters (magical elf, martyr, damsel in distress, scholar, angel, lover, clown) that make up the fragmented parts of actor Evan McNamara’s personality, teach him a profound and hilarious understanding of unconditional love after the ruthless dissolution of his marriage.

In Dream @ The Blackbox at Note

In Dream is the surreal world between two dreams that may or may not be remembered by the visitors once the night is over.  In the first, a young man sits in a room with a total stranger who claims to be the most evil man in the world. In the second, a young woman has a conversation with her fully grown daughter, who has not yet been born.
