If you've been putting off a trip to the 2008 Cincinnati Fringe Festival, your time is short — just two more days of performances before things wrap up on Saturday evening. CityBeat's reviewers have written commentaries on virtually every production, in case you want to read someone else's opinion.
Based on both advance buzz and strong response to two performances (both sold out), it looks like the musical revue Don't Make Me Pull This Show Over: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Parenting is the hottest ticket this year. If you can't get into that one, there are plenty of other shows for you to enjoy. The following have received a "Critic's Pick" from a CityBeat reviewer and continue to be presented on Friday or Saturday: Oatmeal and a Cigarette; Eastbound Jungle; The Factory; fricative; Burning Man Redux; UnMasked … Curt from Detox; and Your Negro Tour Guide.
Read some comments or decide for yourself, but don't miss these stimulating and creative works onstage. You'll find plenty of information plus the performance schedule at the Fringe Web site: www.cincyfringe.com
