The first-ever Fringe Festival Preview at the Palace of Wonders last week was a hoot and a half. Oh, make that a full-on hoot. And occasional hootenanny. This video doesn’t capture the half of it, but does give a tantalizing taste of what’s in store beginning July 19 all around town.

Witness Fringe excerpts from Swami Yomahmi, Lysistration, the puppet stylings of BurleyQ, the Pabst and Popcorn Hour, Nautch DC, Bouncing Ball Productions, and SpeakeasyDC.

So much more to come…
