15th annual Cincy Fringe Festival
Now to June 10
Over-the Rhine (more than a dozen venues), Know Theatre (serves as the hub) at 1120 Jackson Street
13 days of theatre, art, music, dance, and EVERYTHING in between.
This juried Festival is produced by Know theatre. 35 productions by artists and performance groups from near and far will create 250+ performances. The line-up features a variety of genres, styles, subject matters, and skill sets, ensuring that anyone and everyone can find their perfect cup of tea.
Here are three recommendations:
Walt Fit (Jimmy Grzelak, Philadelphia) — apparently, literary giant Walt Whitman once wrote a health-and-beauty guide, which Grzelak will bring to life through a “Richard Simmons-style workout.”
ExTrashVaganza! (Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald – Cincinnati) - Strickland and MacDonald are veterans of the Fringe circuit, spending several months a year making their way from Orlando to Vancouver performing their barebones, but incredibly thought-provoking productions. This one is described as a strange-sational musical found-object puppet comedy for adults.
Bad Poetry Night (A to Z Productions, Cincinnati) is a “kooky, hilarious, cringey” send-up of an open mic night, a satire that bills itself as “Kids in the Hall meets the American Idol open auditions.”
Cost: Single tickets, $15.00

Eternal Blooms: Chinese Painted Enamels on CopperTaft Museum of Art316 Pike Street

Eternal Blooms: Chinese Painted Enamels on Cooper is now at the Taft Museum of Art.

During the 18th century, Chinese enamellers illustrated auspicious symbols drawn from the natural world as wishes for happiness, abundance, and long life in a wide range of newly available pastel colors decorating small utilitarian objects such as plates, bowls, and boxes.
Adults $10 in advance, $12 at the door; seniors $8 in advance, $10 at the door; Youth 18 and under free. Taft members are free. Sunday, Free for all.
