Fringe lookahead: Sunday, June 23

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.
