Good news, all you Capital Fringe devotees: Fringe 2010 is officially upon us.

Fringe editor Chris Klimek christened the Fringe and Purge blog today with its first post since the conclusion of last year’s festival.  He shares the deets of last night’s press preview at Fort Fringe, discussing each of the 16 acts that took the stage. Among the performers: near-naked ladies, pornographic Barbies, and lip-synching drag queens. You know, typical Fringe.

We’ll be giving you daily digests of all things Fringe for the duration of the festival, July 8-25. Look for our signature hip-shot reviews, director interviews, color pieces, and more at www.washingtoncitypaper.com/fringe.
