I am always asked by friends and even random strangers, what should I see at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. My first answer is EVERYTHING. I get a blank stare and tell I am going to see all 29 shows and 1 special performance. That gets another blank stare, followed by a comment along the lines of "Wow, that's kind of crazy." When I get past that I offer up some shows I've heard some buzz about. Below is the list of shows I would suggest everyone plan on seeing. These are not going to be the best shows of the festival. These are the shows that are either from groups that I've see before and like the synopsis of their show, or these are shows people have mentioned they've heard good things about. If will be leaving out a bunch of good shows that people will rave about. That happens every year at Fringe, you will be surprised by at least one show, if not ten.
These are not in any significant order, other than I hope alphabetical.
