Fringe lookahead: Sunday, June 23

June 23, 2013

If today were the last day of Ottawa Fringe 2013, what shows would you see?


After full houses on opening night, Sappho… in 9 fragments and We Glow have begun a streak of sold-out performances. Both filled venues on their second night – and with the reviews coming in, are apt to do the same for a third time.

The Bike Trip brought crowds twice yesterday, having been performed once in the evening and again in the late night slot.  Emissions: A Climate Comedy had some serious buzz around their opening performance. Enough to nearly fill every last seat in the large Arts Court Theatre. Won’t be surprised to hear of a sold-out performance some night soon.

Some may have waited for the reviews to come in before taking a chance on My Second Smile.  Doesn’t seem to be the case any more as the show continues to climb the top-selling charts in terms of advance ticket sales.

After filling Studio Léonard-Beaulne for Saturday’s opening, The Bureau of Bat Shit Crazy looks well on its way to a second full house. We’ll know soon.


Fringe open mic at 8:30pm.  Get down to the Courtyard even sooner to register.


Chesterfield. A central character to the play is… a couch. That’s enough to get me into Academic Hall for this show’s opening night (6:30pm). 2 for 1 deals at the door.

Having had the pleasure of catching 15 minutes of rehearsal time,  I have a good feeling about Innocent When You Dream. If not today, will certainly catch it tomorrow.


Missed Preview Night?  Got you covered.

    Bill,If you want to read more about the Computer Security Guidelines, check out NIST’s website, NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, deoelvped the security measures that we must follow.Extending the password expiration term may be possible. I’ll bring up the idea to our supervisors and our security liaison. Giving users the option to change the frequency may be beyond our means. Again though, I’ll bring the suggest to their attention.In terms of your paper requests for passwords, one of our co-workers worked to get the password recovery to be an online process. Currently, the only paper requests for password are for the Account Administrator who get locked out. We’ve also added a counter so you know how many attempts you have left as well as increase the number of attempts you are in the given time frame (originally 1 hour, now 15 minutes).I appreciate your questions and comments. This dialogue needs to be taking place. A lot of people ask why our passwords are so hard and basically, it’s to protect their information. If we can make AESDirect easier for users without sacrificing security, then we are all for it.Kenny
