Nothing against either of tonight’s performances (all two of them), but if we had to suffer an H Street NE power outage at some point, it should have been on a night when there’s nothing playing in Fringe central.
Like tonight. If you’re one of the folks who got shut out of a performance between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. last night and need another Fringe fix stat, you could do worse than these two offsite options.
The Winter’s Tale (Flashpoint: Mead Theatre Lab, 8 p.m.)—Get your Mondays out with a dose of We Happy Few’s nontraditional Shakespeare. Director Hannah Todd lets her actors change costumes onstage, erasing the line between performer and audience.
Girl Versus Corinth (Catholic University: Ward Recital Hall, 8 p.m.)—To be honest, our own Joshua Buursma wasn’t the biggest fan of Monumental Theatre Company‘s reimagining of Medea for modern youth. But he says the show has a “manic energy” behind it, and if you want to see something tonight that’s not Shakespeare, this is literally your only choice.
How about the rest of the week—what are you seeing? What do you think about the shows so far? Let us know in the comments (and please keep in mind the outage wasn’t Fringe’s fault).
