2nd Annual Capital Fringe Festival, Various Venues in D.C., July 19-29.
To heck with the mainstream, it’s more fun to live on the fringe! Here’s your chance to do just that. Ten days of wacky, wild, no holds barred theatrical productions all over the District, with a kick-off party where all the artists and their patrons will fill three floors of the Avenue Night Club, 649 New York Ave., N.W., from 9 p.m. on. Check out www.capfringe.org for all the many, many details and to buy tickets on line. This editor recommends “The Lesbian and the Flying Pig” by Falls Church’s own Scot Walker, five performances beginning Friday, July 20, at 10:30 p.m. at the Flashpoint-Mead Theatre Lab, at 9th & G St. NW (916 G Street).
