Guys, if you’re not seeing at least 50 shows today, you’re doing it wrong. This is the supernova of Capital Fringe: No matter where you look today, you’ll see performances. This is just a small sample of the madness out there.
Squares (Gallaudet University: Kendall Demonstration Elementary School Pavilion, 1 p.m.) — Check your privilege on the playground in Dog & Pony’s interactive experiment, which Will Sommer says resembles “your childhood daycare run by bell hooks.”
Tammy Faye’s Final Audition (Dance Place: Brookland Artspace Lofts Studio, 1:30 p.m.) — Only a couple chances left to catch this imagined account of the Christian TV camp queen’s last days. Joshua Buursma said the show is “funny, entertaining, and surprisingly moving.”
Up for Debate (Atlas Performing Arts Center: Lab II, 2:30 p.m.) — A former Communist running for Congress — what could go wrong? Find out for yourself in Luke Mullan‘s dark comedy.
BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG (Dance Place: Hyman S. Perlo Studio, 6:45 p.m.) — Political comic Will Durst holds no generation sacred in his monologue, which one might be tempted to call time-sensitive. Our critic Amrita Khalid said Durst will “either make you laugh or depress the hell out of you.”
Also: You should really see The Last Burlesque, I am the Gentry, and Wombat Drool. And it’s your last chance to quit your day job.
