How to Quit Your Day Job (Corner Store Arts, 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.) — Talk about a temp worker. If you want to see OpenStage‘s original, millenial-friendly musical combining hip-hop, Sondheim, and 20something angst, you only have two chances today (and one tomorrow at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop) to act. Better move fast, or you’ll never learn how to quit your day job (and this is Fringe, so everyone wants to).
Breaking Character (Atlas Performing Arts Center: Sprenger, 12:15 p.m.) — The teens strike back in this original work about high school stereotypes who become self-aware, written and directed by Chantilly High School student Hannah Harmison and produced by the all-teen Millenial Theatre Company. Were you making Fringe plays in high school? No? Then maybe stop calling today’s youth “lazy.”
ROGER (Not His Real Name) (Tree House Lounge, 1:30 p.m.) — We first saw Matthew Vaky‘s one-man show about an addled conspiracy theorist last fall, and Rachel Kurzius had a good time breaking down Roger’s wild-eyed views on everything from Dan Snyder to the Hubble Telescope. He’s back for another round of insane ramblings.
Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom (D.C. Arts Center, 7:30 p.m.) — Our own Marshall Bradshaw was only too happy to unload his quarters into Molotov Theatre‘s dark suburbia-as-video-game horror vision. Come for the polygons, stay for the cross-generational battles.
