City Paper is not for tourists
So, there was this show, EIGHT, presented as part of the Capital Fringe Festival that Fringe & Purge Action News and Commentary Squad MVP Ian Buckwalter and I both really dug. It’s comprised of eight monologues, only four of which are performed on any given night, as selected by audience vote. The show is deservedly extending its run for eight additional performances at DCAC starting Thursday night, Aug. 5.
I sat down with the cast and crew at Fort Fringe the weekend before last, four shows into their run. We made this video together. Sorry for all the door slamming; I did what I could to fix it. The Paul Greengrass-style shaky-cam effect is purely intentional.
