The Friday Five, Pre-Fringe Edition, May 27, 2011

The Last Straight Man in Theatre (Kurt Fitzpatrick)

Tilting at Titles
Two fives for the Fest
by Estelle Rosen and Gaëtan L. Charlebois

Ah! Those were the days: when we at the alternative press amused ourselves in wondering how the mainstream press would handle Fringe titles like The Happy Cunt. This year's batch of titles include none that jump off the page and smack you in the face quite like that one, but there are enough intriguing and/or wacky ones to offer food for thought. (To find out the perpetrators either follow the links for the show to their EVENT listing here at CharPo or go to the Fringe site.)

  1. Hey Estelle and Gaëtan!

    If you thought our title (eXs and Ohs) was intriguing, you won't want to miss our show! We are proud to be in this year's edition of the Montreal Fringe with our brand new, one of a kind show: eXs & Ohs. This collective creation is the work of three University of Ottawa Theatre graduates who share a passion for hilarious, innovative and sexy theatre. The show is fresh, fast-paced, and is anything but traditional.
