First theater reviews of The Fringe — Hollywood Fringe Fest 2012

Theater aficionadi, the Hollywood Fringe Festival is almost upon us for the third year in a row.

Running from June 14—24, 2012, this non-curated theater festival promises an “explosion of theater performances, solo artists, dancers, experimental art, comedy, films, and cabaret,” with local and international artists converging on Hollywood’s theater row.

Wednesday June 13 is the opening night gala, and the festival concludes with an awards ceremony and after party.
