Be a Man Story Slam

by Gregg Clark

June 24, 2013

Antony Hall, of Be a Man, had his leg broken when hit by a car only hours after their opening night performance. He’s in good shape and good spirits, but has required surgery. In the show’s time slots, the community of Fringe artists has banded together for story slams as a pay-what-you-can fundraiser to help the… Read More

Fringe Lookahead: Monday, June 24

by Patrick Gauthier

June 24, 2013

Happy Monday everyone! What a great first weekend of Fringe, despite last night’s rain washing out open mic night in the Courtyard. The less-than-desirable weather hasn’t stopped audiences from heading out to the festival, though. I have yet to attend a show that hasn’t been packed. WHAT’S HOT Advance ticket sales are so hot this… Read More

Quick Hits: Nancy Kenny

by Patrick Gauthier

June 23, 2013

You might remember Nancy Kenny from her super successful solo show Roller Derby Saved My Soul in 2011. Nancy’s back at the Fringe this year with Dolores, something a little different. We caught up with her before her opening performance the other day.

An afternoon snack may be on your mind, which means it’s time to reveal yesterday’s contest winners! Congratulations to the following Fringers, all of whom tweeted reviews and through a very detailed, rigorous, and well thought our process (read: randomly selected) have each won a pizza, courtesy of ZaZaZa Pizza. How can you win a pizza?… Read More

If today were the last day of Ottawa Fringe 2013, what shows would you see? WHAT’S HOT 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… Read More

SPECIAL: 8:00pm at Arts Court Theatre

by Gregg Clark

June 22, 2013

BUMMER ALERT: The remainder of Be a Man’s run in Arts Court Theatre has been cancelled. Performer Antony Hall was unfortunate to be involved in an accident a couple nights ago. He’s doing well and in good spirits. Unfortunately, the talented cast will not be performing remaining dates of Be a Man. Wishing our dear friend… Read More

Fringe lookahead: Saturday, June 22

by Gregg Clark

June 22, 2013

Good morning, Ottawa Fringe! You’re catching on quick – these lookaheads have been (and will continue to be) daily posts for keen Fringers. I suppose I should address “lookahead” sooner than later. One must know that someone among us possesses (it’s me) a Certificate in Creative Writing from some post-secondary institution or another. Use of italics adds… Read More

Quick Hits: Cameryn Moore

by Patrick Gauthier

June 22, 2013

Looking for info on Cameryn Moore’s show, slut (r)evolution, in the program? Sorry, but you won’t find it there. Due to a last minute drop out, Cameryn got into the festival off the wait-list, but too late for inclusion in the program. We caught up with her for a quick chat…
