The Winnipeg Fringe Festival is on again, celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary! As I've done before, I've purchased tickets to some shows that I absolutely did not want to miss, and using this blog post to keep a list of other shows I'll catch if I can manage. If anyone is looking for some company to these or other fringe performances, just let me know and we'll coordinate :)
