Here They Come: Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe Previews and Interviews and Roundups Oh My!

Posted September 3rd, 2009

>>>Weirdest publicity break ever? Well, not really, but pretty cool: Melissa Dunphy talks to the Wall Street Journal‘s Law Blog about The Gonzales Cantata. Meet the cast and video preview here; half-price ($10) preview tonight at The Rotunda, 7:00 pm.

>>>Crazy coverage in City Paper, starting today!

>>>The role of women in theater (not as actors, but in the institution, you see) has been much in the news and hotly debated this summer. In Philadelphia Weekly, J. Cooper Robb has a great story on the slew of great work by or featuring women in this year’s festival.

>>>Among Philadelphia Weekly‘s weekend picks: Festival Bar opens tomorrow, kids! Well, 21-and-ups, anyway. Check back later today for pics of this year’s bar-space-in-progress as we get ready for a packed house tomorrow night. They can’t turn me away, because I gotta cover it, but you should get there early.

>>>The Festival imports performers from Poland, sure, but did you know we also import them from Montgomery County?

>>>Rep Radio, which is rapidly becoming one of my favorite area podcasts. The latest features EgoPo’s Company and folks from Monday night’s final Philly Fringe previews: Crooked House, Katie and Pitark, The Gonzales Contata, Mr. Harry, Pumpernickel and Marmalade and Shakesploitation II: Iambic Boogaloo.

>>>Lindsay Harris-Friel runs down her picks at Phawker. I’m actually going to four of the six shows Lindsay selects. Who is this person, who knows my aesthetics?

>>>Oops, Geoff Sobelle’s appearance on Fox29’s “Good Day Philadelphia” got bumped to tomorrow, sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 am.
