Welcome to Gia On The Move’s Hollywood Fringe 2019 review page. What is the Hollywood Fringe? Well, the short version is that it is the largest plays festival in America offering a full month of uncurated works – solo shows, musicals, dramas, comedies, immersive, clown, and acrobatic from as short as 15 and 30 minutes to 90 and occasionally longer. Really the sky’s the limit and there is something for everyone.

What? Yes! Los Angeles is a theater town. Can you believe it? And this year, there are over 400 festival shows to prove it. We’ll be covering a few here with short reviews as we’ve done since 2011. Check in daily for the month of June. We’ll be publishing regularly. And by all means, get yourself to a show!

Happy Fringing!
