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)
3. THE TRUTH
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
6. LAMPREY: WEEKEND OF VENGEANCE
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
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.
