First-time Fringer Jonathan Padget is taking a literal plunge with his play The Blue Lagoon: A Musical. Turning films into musicals is all the rage these days, but Jonathan deserves much credit for going where even Hollywood wouldn’t dare venture. And in true Fringe spirit, the production was built largely from dollar-store items.

The next performances of The Blue Lagoon: A Musical are Saturday, July 28, and Sunday, July 29, at 8 p.m., at Playbill Café, 1409 14th St. NW.

(And apologies to Jonathan and everyone for the intrusive camera mic that keeps peeking into the shots.)
