The San Francisco Fringe Festival returns for its 22nd year with 36 examples of the best in exciting, edgy, and witty new theatre. There’s everything from sketch comedy to German Strum und Drang, from tales of a massage parlor to the horrors of parenting, from a Cliff’s Notes Macbeth to a journey through black music by a man who does a great James Brown. And a show performed on (and off) a bus.
The 22nd Annual San Francisco Fringe Festival runs for 14 days, September 6-21, 2013, at the EXIT Theatreplex, 156 Eddy Street, in downtown San Francisco. This year, the run is longer (14, rather than 12 days) and extended to include three weekends. The only days the theatre is dark are Mondays.
Tickets for the 14-day San Francisco Fringe Festival, Sept. 6-21, are $10 (or less) at the door (cash only) and $12.99 (or less) online. The ten-show Frequent Fringer pass is $75, and a five-show pass is $45. The EXIT Theatreplex is within walking distance of Union Square and the Powell Street BART station.
