Hi, Governor! We have killer press.

Posted September 3rd, 2010

Governor Ed Rendell swung by the opening night party last night. Because we ballin’. Just look at today’s press roundup:

>>>Peter Crimmins had a big feature on WHYY this morning about how the Festivals feature not only artists who’ve been in Philadelphia for a long time, but also artists from elsewhere who’ve chosen to make Philly home. Interviewees include Eun Jung Choi, John Rosenberg, and Quinn Bauriedel.

>>>Karin Phillips has a piece on KYW Newsradio. A quick item, but they’ve posted Karin’s full 10-minute interview with our fearless leader Nick Stuccio.

>>>Shaun Brady writes a huge story in the Daily News on the experimental side of things, focusing on Danny Yung, Cankerblossom, Jester’s Dead, and more.

>>>Wendy Rosenfield recommends family-friendly shows for the Inquirer, including Cankerblossom, Bang on a Can Marathon, Scorch, and more.

>>>Also at the Inky, Ellen Dunkel writes up “some of what looks hot on the creative front.” Too many to list, so just click through to read her picks.

>>>Like the Governor, Brooklyn-based writer, performer, and pamphleteer Alexis Clements knows Philly Fringe rules. She spreads the good word in New York City’s L magazine (where her article is, in fact, titled “Why Philly’s Fringe is Best”), and she’ll bring her show Conversation to the Fringe September 9 through 12. Speaking of which, did you hear that 8.4 million New Yorkers left this week?

>>>The Reporter out of Lansdale has a nice article on the Festivals, focusing on Montgomery County artists who are performing in Philly Fringe. AND an interview with Pia!

>>>The Morning Call (of Allentown) covers performers from the Lehigh Valley who are heading down to Philly over the next few weeks.

>>>Ditto Reading. The Reading Eagle has a short piece on the Fringe and Reading-area folks who are making their way down.

>>>Brian Lynch interviews the creators of Jester’s Dead for

Also on, Christopher Munder offers up his Festival picks.

Phew. More later? We hope so.
