Anticipating the 2009 Fringe: 2 Quick Mentions and the 2009 Fringe Trailer

Several people forwarded the above 2009 Indy Fringe Trailer video to me.  Perhaps you received it in your email and/or on your Facebook feed, too.  It is very short – less than a minute.  It is fun to try to guess who all of the characters are after reading many of the show descriptions on the Indy Fringe website.  I am looking forward to watching the trailer video again after I have seen a lot of the new shows.

I won’t have time to share any more full press releases with you before the Fringe Parade and Preview Party Thursday night (8/20/09 beginning at 6pm on Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis), so I’ll just mention that Taylor Martin of “Andrew Merlyn’s Greatest Hits (and missus)” sends me a weekly email about his magic shows throughout the year.  His recent Fringe-related emails say that this is “my best show ever,” so if you are already a Taylor Martin fan, you had better not miss this one!  I think that Taylor’s is the only magic show in the Indy Fringe this year.

Alan Velotta sent me the pdf of the program for “The Worst Show in the Fringe,” which I appreciated, too.  This show was written by Joseph Scrimshaw and is presented by Merely Players, Inc. out of Owensboro, Kentucky.  I thought these guys were a hoot last year in their “Adventures in Mating” show.   I love that their Fringe program this year says “Visit our friends” and lists the titles, locations and times for 4 or 5 other 2009 Indy Fringe shows.

‘See you at the Fringe!

Hope Baugh – and @IndyTheatre on
