We asked September's Proximity Neglect Project™ winner to take some pictures and let us know how it went. Here's what she said:
Are you happy with your choice of the show you saw for the Fringe Arts Festival? If not, what do you wish you'd chosen instead?
Katie: Yes. I wasn't sure if I'd regret seeing a show by "kids" (they're in high school, so they're not really kids, but they ARE less than half my age), especially kids taking on such weighty topics, but I loved it. It reminded me to give teenagers more credit and to respect artists of any age.
What was the coolest part about it?
Katie: They were SCATHING but also FUNNY. I wasn't expecting to laugh so much. The coolest part, though, was the access to the people who put the show together. They were all hanging around before and after and happy to talk.
What would you warn our readers to watch out for if they attend Fringe Arts themselves?
Katie: Keep an eye on where the show is - if you're booking more than one show within a few hours, not all of the performance spaces are accessible by public transportation in a short amount of time. Also, the shows are in all different sorts of locales, some with spotty climate control. Dress accordingly.
REMINDER: The Fringe Arts Festival is going on through September 24th, so go see a show yourself!

We're trying this new fad called blogging. I believe its "blogging" or "blowging," it might be a long "O," I'm not sure. But apparently you just write for an extended period of time.
