The 23rd edition of the St. Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival celebrated the fact that it was a bilingual festival … through bread.
It's no easy task to plow through the festival's impressive, voluminous press kit filled with flyers, press releases and promotional materials about many of the English and French language shows that will be featured. However, after carefully studying its contents during a two hour period following the press conference, I managed to zero in on a few shows that I plan to catch (and review) during this year's Fringe Fest: Acme Burlesque (June 6), The Balding (June 15-17, 19, 21 and 22), Paraphilia: Everyone Has A Sexual Disorder (June 14, 15, 18, 21-23), We are Fish ... Elvis is Water (June 15-17, 20-22), Verbal Diarrhea: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Bomb at Love (June 14, 16, 17, 21-23), Now That I Have Your Attention! (June 13, 15, 18, 20-23), Jess Salomon: Obsession (June 14-16, 18, 19, 21-23), and Zack Adams: Zack to the Future (June 14-16, 18, 20, 22 and 23).
...And believe me, this is just scratching the surface!
