Chicago Fringe Festival schedule announced

| August 20, 2011

Fringe Festival 2011 banner

Tickets are on sale for the Second Annual Fringe Festival, September 1-11, including such groups as Maximum Verbosity, Phil the Void and Hobo Junction. These are not the names of race horses or yachts. They are three of the 50 performance groups that will entertain, inspire and delight audiences during the second annual Chicago Fringe Festival, taking place September 1st through 11th in the Pilsen neighborhood.

The year’s theme, On the Map, Under the Radar, expresses that Chicago Fringe has carved out a strong identity as part of the worldwide Fringe theatre movement, yet remains committed to flying under the radar, offering audiences uncensored, unconventional theatrical experiences.

PERFORMANCE LOCATIONS

The five Pilsen venues include two converted Chicago Arts Department galleries (Doppler Stage and Meridian Stage), Dream Theatre, Temple Gallery, and the HumanThread Center. Chicago Fringe Festival has partnered with HumanThread to present a special commemoration of 9/11, to take place at 2:00 p.m. on September 11, at the Center.

Fringe Central, 2003 S. Halsted, will be the epicenter of Festival activity, where people can buy tickets and nosh on the delicious Mexican street food and award-winning mole dishes of our official food vendor, DeColores. Artists and festival-goers can also enjoy beer and wine as they chill out and make Fringey connections of all sorts—personal, professional, artistic, romantic, metaphysical.
