Hollywood Fringe Festival and Other Shows this Weekend

The Hollywood Fringe Festival kicked off last night. I’m excited about this festival. I was always jealous of my friends who took part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Many of these shows are U.S. or world premieres and there are performances throughout the day. The Hollywood Fringe Festival‘s website offers a comprehensive schedule that you can search through by both date and a venue, so it’s easy to find a play. Bitter Lemons has been doing a great job covering this festival.

I’m interested in Defending Against Eros: Three One Act Plays. I always like the idea of writing plays based on paintings, so this show appeals to me. I’m sure you can find something that appeals to you as well.

I’m also going to see Fiddler on the Roof, produced by One More Productions. The show is at the beautiful Gem Theatre in Garden Grove, CA. I know for many of us in LA are hesitant to make that drive, but if this show is anything like there past production of A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, it will be worth it.

On Sunday at 11 AM there will be a special reading of Velina Hasu Houston‘s The Territory of Dreams at the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga Canyon. Velina’s plays are incredible, the venue is gorgeous and it’s free. Pack a picnic lunch and spend your afternoon outside!

Also, I don’t think I’ll be able to go see this show, but Sacred Fools is now staging Forbidden Zone: Live in the 6th Dimension. I’ve head great things about this production and wish I could make it. Check it out yourself and let me know what you think.

    I saw “Forbidden Zone,” and really enjoyed it, though it may have helped that I already knew the film from which it was adapted. Good news for you, though; I just got an email from a friend in it that it’s been extended through July 10, so you’ve got more chances to see it.

    Hi – found your blog while googling “Forbidden Zone”… which has just extended through July 10, and now runs Thurs-Sat @ 8pm. Hopefully you can make it now!

    (Also – agreed about “I Made Out With Him Anyway”!)
