The Hollywood Fringe Festival is coming to a close, so if you’re frantically trying to decide what shows to see before the end, why not judge a book by its cover? As always, an eye-catching postcard gives you a leg-up at Fringe, so here are a few that had us doing a double-take. Check out these shows before they’re gone!


1. THUG TUNNEL

Robot Teammate & The Accidental Party

Like last year’s list, we gotta give huge props to Robot Teammate & The Accidental Party for their awesome poster art. Fun, well-designed and captivating. Their flyers always represent the feel of the show and all the actors in it. Nicely done, Dax Schaffer! Check out Dax’s work here(SHOW DETAILS) *CLOSES TONIGHT!


2. HOW TO BE A VIRGIN (IN 12 MORALLY AMBIGUOUS STEPS)

Lucid Dramatics

I love this one! Captivating and perfectly balanced. A fantastic use of negative space and provocative imagery. Find Katelyn Schiller on Twitter at @Katelynschiller  or Instagram(SHOW DETAILS)


3. THE TRUTH

Shine On

The Truth - Flyer

Both this poster and the show details for this one scream “intrigue.” Very well-composed image by Christi Riddle, with a hint of Hollywood mystery. I’m very curious what is going to happen beyond the entryway into The Hudson Lobby Cafe…  (SHOW DETAILS)


4. HERE THERE BE DRAGONS

Rogue Elephant

Here There Be Dragons - Flyer

Dogs always get my attention. And Dragons. And this adorable image of a puppy knight about to slay some dragons… I’m sold. Check out Nicole Filiatrault’s other work.  (SHOW DETAILS)


5. TILT

BAM


A very cinematic flyer for a very gritty show seems like just the right choice. Nice work *again* by Katelyn Schiller and Fiona Lakeland(SHOW DETAILS)


6. LAMPREY: WEEKEND OF VENGEANCE

Vengeance Incorporated


A perfect homage to the 80s, and a great sneak into the zaniness that is Lamprey. Shout outs to Travis Stevens for the photo and Victor Isaac for the layout/design. (SHOW DETAILS)


7. COLD TANGERINES

Little Candle Productions


Is it just because I love tangerines? NO! This flyer gets your attention with its economical design and good balance. It’s very pleasing and welcoming, and gives a hint of “best selling book cover” at the same time. (SHOW DETAILS)


8. THE HUMAN TEST SUBJECTS

Don’t Ride the Reindeer Productions


Fireworks shooting out of a lady’s brain? You bet! A rather perfect image for an improv group, I’d say. Definitely got my attention! Check out Jake Thompson, who designed the flyer. (SHOW DETAILS)


For the unacquainted…

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrate the Hollywood neighborhood: fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers.

Participation in the Hollywood Fringe is completely open and uncensored. This free-for-all approach underlines the festival’s mission to be a platform for artists without the barrier of a curative body. By opening the gates to anyone with a vision, the festival is able to exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge points-of-view the world has to offer. Additionally, by creating an environment where artists must self-produce their work, the Fringe motivates its participants to cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurialism in the arts.
