Keep It Coming!
After yesterday, I was like, oh, maybe I won’t have to do a press roundup for the Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe today. I was mistaken. Good for us!
>>>SHAMELESS PLUG: Lindsay Harris-Friel gives her recommendations via Phawker, including Festival editor emeritus Josh McIlvain’s Boat Hole, where his “15 funniest short comedies are all together in one sleazy, edgy and outrageous package.” Good for him, because boy, when we tried to cover his show for our blog, everything went off the rails. We’ll let you know what happened in next week’s series, “Misquoted.”
>>>We’re luxe, baby! Haute Living, which “uses a controlled distribution model that places the magazine directly in the hands of our country’s most powerful individuals,” got us covered, yo. Trey and Muffy gon’ be up in this jawn! I think I saw that bol at the Head of the Charles last year.
>>>On the critical tip, Contemporary Performance lays out its Live Arts Festival highlights.
>>>Shaun Brady serves up some picks in the Daily News.
>>>Troy Graham writes an Inquirer feature on Flash!, a show that looks at the so-called “flash mobs” that happened in Philly, and lets the voices of teenagers be heard. A good counterpoint to some of the panicked stories about the phenomenon that, well, ignored teenagers.
>>>Hey New Yorkers, the Times says you should come here for a dance fix this weekend. Do so.
>>>Monica Weymouth gives us a nod in the Metro.
>>>The Courier-Post offers up a big feature on the Festivals, focusing on the contributions from our neighbors across the Delaware River.
>>>Phillyist weighs in with their picks for both Live Arts and Philly Fringe.
