My vote is for The Playwright Zone. If you haven't seen this play yet at the Capital Fringe Festival then you haven't been to the Capital Fringe Festival! I am just saying! Go, See, Review and you will be glad that you did!

One Man Lord of the Rings is not a Fringe show.

That's true, neversaylie. I should have mentioned that in the intro: Since we included "One Man Lord of the Rings" in our Fringe coverage (Charlie Ross' previous one-man show was a Fringe show, so we thought that gave him some Fringe cred), I decided to include it in the poll.

Dizzy Miss Lizzie's Roadside Revue's performance of Finn McCool was fantastic!

I saw paperStrangers Medea last week and it was incredible! I really hope everyone gets a chance to see this breathtaking production. The directing, the acting, the design, all of it, was wildly and creepily moving. Please see this production. They deserve your support. Truly wonderful work.

Want to see a show to remind you that the 80's were a hot mess of nonsense? "Things I Wrote Before My First Kiss" was 45 minutes of laughter brought on by a set of pros. If "Mr Yuck" or Johnny Depp's intro to entertainment mean anything, or if you actually went to an A HA concert-this is for you. I plan to go again next week. Plus-45 minutes? Excellent.

Cookin' Up Numbers is a Brillant idea and I am no math nerd. Thanks for the imaginative math review everyone, I thought it was great fun. The smell of the Chocolate Chip cookies in the shpae of numbers baking during the performance was a hint that sweetly paid off. The introduction of how math is reflected in our world in a fun way is well with-in the grasp of school age children, as are the brief introductions to theory. I wish I had the exposure at a younger age. Well done.
