The Vancouver Fringe Festival is upon us, and if you’re a fan of the Fringe, you can experience Fringe shows all year long with a Theatre Wire Subscription! Theatre Wire not only showcases some of the best independent theatre companies in the city, but it also brings Fringe hits back so you can Fringe all year long!
Part of the 2016 Vancouver Fringe, Falling Awake took home the Joanna Maratta Award and the Mollie Bradley Award. Colin Thomas called it “one of the best shows at the Vancouver Fringe.” If you missed it, or if you want to see it again, this is your chance! There’ll be just three performances, October 13 to 15.
Blindside is made up of Stéphanie Morin-Robert’s real-life experiences as a kid with a glass eye. The Edmonton Journal described it as “a charmer of a solo show, surprisingly light, elliptical, and funny.” A hit on the 2016 Fringe circuit, it’s finally coming to Vancouver, April 26 to 28, 2018.
If you love pop culture, you’re going to love Mockingjay: The Musical – A Hunger Games Musical. Back at the 2015 Fringe, District 13 Presents brought Vancouver audiences the first of this trilogy, Hunger Games: The Musical, which was consistently sold out! Catching Fire, the second in the series, was called “infectious fun” by Vancouver Presents’ Mark Robins. Catch the third installment November 23 to 25.
In the mood for some variety? Fringe Cabarets are also part of the Theatre Wire Subscription! Fringe alumni come together to put on a variety show based on a theme. Sketch, clown, burlesque—we’re never sure what these creative Fringers are going to put together. Next up, a spooky Halloween Cabaret on October 31 and a holiday special unlike any other, Fringemas on December 8.
Pick Plus shows have also been added to the Theatre Wire Subscription! Right after the Festival, playing alongside the Public Market Pick of the Fringe shows is the Pick Plus, four Fringe famous shows that are each playing for one night only! The Merkin Sisters on September 20, Give It Up on September 21, Shirley Gnome: Taking It Up The Notch on September 22, and Peter n’ Chris’ Best Bits on September 22.
