The 2008 Cincinnati Fringe Festival (the fifth annual) is up and running, and that offers your best theatrical choices for the weekend. You can read more about the vast array of Fringe offerings on CityBeat's Fringe blog site, but let me give you a quick heads-up about what I've seen so far that I'd urge others to check out.
On May 28, the first day of performances, I watched The Hotel Plays, a world premiere of three short works by respected playwright Israel Horovitz. They're humorous, a vein that Horovitz seldom follows, and well performed with co-direction by Ed Cohen and Dan Doerger. Four actors convey three situations of relationships that don't quite work, set in and around a hotel (it's kind of a latter-day version of Neil Simon's Plaza Suite.) I liked it, and reviewer Tom McElfresh gave it a critic's pick.
