Summer may be just about over, but Philly stages are just heating up. The Fringe Festival is one of the most anticipated theater events of the year and it returns this month with hundreds of original and boundary-pushing productions, including dozens right near your Dalian on the Park apartment.
Fringe keeps the definition of theater loose: While some shows take place in large, traditional theaters, others will be held at bars, in open-air spaces and even at individual homes. Fringe’s innovation and willingness to embrace unique, thought-provoking ways of expressing theater has made it a Philly favorite for years.
Here are some of the most unique shows setting up in venues near your Dalian on the Park apartment:
Le Super Grand Continental: It’s back! The high-spirited performance event that wowed Fringe audiences in 2012 returns to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, five blocks from your Dalian on the Park apartment, Sept. 8-9. More than 200 dancers from Philadelphia will unite for a massive choreographed show, followed by a huge open-air dance party where the audience is invited to join in.
Do You Want a Cookie?: Popular drag troupe the Bearded Ladies Cabaret takes over an old Northern Liberties factory, one mile from your Dalian on the Park apartment, for an eye-opening and, of course, hilarious set of shows from Sept. 5-16. The series features an all-star cast of 14 performers, rotating nightly, who will tell the storied history of the art of cabaret.
The Museum Workout: Contemporary-dance company Monica Bill Barnes & Co. brings the exhibits in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, five blocks from your Dalian on the Park apartment, to life from Sept. 12-16. Visual art, dance, multimedia displays and more interpret the pieces in the museum, as participants follow along. Expect a good 45-minute workout during the show, so wear comfy clothes!
