Happy Hour on the Fringe

On this episode of Happy Hour on the Fringe, we share a drink with Marc Wilken from Parks and Recreation and three independent Fringe Festival artists: Dana Suleymanova (Dear qupid), Eric Thayer (Give Your Heart), and Leah Stein with Asimina Chremos (RISE: Relationship is Self Existing).  All of the performances are participatory and engage with the City of Brotherly Love as they explore love, the beating heart, and how human bodies share space in LOVE Park this September.  Listen to the podcast episode below or read the full transcript on the FringeArts Blog.

Fear Itself

Posted September 12th, 2019

September 12–14, 2019

We live with fear everyday. Fear Itself  takes the audience on a tour through a real historical cemetery to explore the concept of fear, the lost souls we encounter along the way, and the choices we get to make to either save these souls or leave them behind.

$10–$20 / 45 minutes


The Hum’n’bards Theater Troupe is dedicated to creating devised musical theater, exploring themes of science fiction, social justice, queer identity, and more. We at the Hum’n’bards believe that art needs to be accessible to people, regardless of financial ability. Therefore, our shows offer flexible ticket policies such as pay-what-you-can and sliding scale. The company was founded in 2016 by Wyatt Flynn, and has continued to create original work with primarily queer theater artists.

Past shows include:

We’ll Sleep When We’re Dead (Theater Week 2019)
God Forgive These Bastards (Fringe Festival 2018)
Not Not the Illuminati (Theater Week 2018)
Glister (Fringe Festival 2017)
Scrap’t (2017)
Pangaea (Fringe Festival 2016)

September 9, 11 + 14, 2019

Give Your Heart is a participatory sound performance designed to both involve and reflect the Philadelphia community. Participants will be able to add their heartbeats to an improvisational sound score, both generated and enjoyed by Philadelphians.

60s FOLK Revisited

Posted September 7th, 2019

September 7, 8, 14 + 15, 2019

Protests, prevaricating politicians, pandemonium. It feels like the ’60s again! Time to revisit songs by Woody Guthrie, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Bob Gibson, Shel Silverstein, Chad Mitchell, Joni Mitchell, and more. Sung by BackStage Bistro Award winner Kate Loitz. Joyful, passionate music in a gorgeous rooftop setting.

$10 / 60 minutes


Join Kate Loitz and award-winning guitarist Lenny Ranallo on the beautiful roof deck of the Davison Building. Our venue is atop a private apartment building, so you must be escorted to the roof. Please arrive early so everyone can be seated by curtain. And be aware that there are no restrooms. The show is not for children, although teens should be fine. There are dark moments, and funny ones as well. Even a couple of sing-alongs.

Florence and Texas have three things in common: liquor, death, and music. Real and real-crazy drunken tales of fame and violence from the 1920s fuse with jazzy riffs on modern pop songs for a night of high notes, low blows, and bespoke cocktails.

$15 / 70 minutes
