Pittsburgh Fringe Festival

Whether you’re looking for an improv show, interactive hypnotism, Shakespeare or vaudeville entertainment, this year’s Fringe Festival has something for everyone. The mission of the festival is “to support adventurous and exploratory performing artists by showcasing their uncensored artistic expression in a professional environment to equally adventurous audiences,” and there are more than 30 performances planned. Now in its fifth year, the three-day festival includes local performers, as well as touring acts that have appeared at other Fringe festivals around the world. Works include Falkland — The War the World Forgot, a piece about the Falklands War performed by a U.K. company, and To My Unborn Child: A Love Letter From Fred Hampton, a play about the Black Panther activist and organizer killed by the Chicago police. -RA
