Tomorrow I leave for Minneapolis to visit the largest Fringe Festival in the country, aptly named the Minnesota Fringe Festival. They’re so awesome their website address is simply www.fringefestival.org. I mean, come on.
To put their sheer size into perspective:
-The Cincinnati Fringe featured 31 shows. The Minnesota Fringe has 162 shows
-The Cincinnati Fringe featured 151 performances. The Minnesota Fringe has over 800 performances.
-The Cincinnati Fringe was hosted in 12 venues. The Minnesota Fringe is hosted in 22 venues.
-The Cincinnati Fringe issued approximately 6800 tickets. The Minnesota Fringe will issue in excess of 40,000 tickets.
I suspect these impressive numbers are only the start and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me. I’ll be Tweeting about my trip and posting the occasional blog here. You can follow me at either @cincyfringe, or @ecivilvos.
Talk to you soon!
PS. Did I mention I’ve never actually been to another Fringe Festival before?
