Fringe File #6: The Final Show List

A promotional picture for the Fringe show My Uncanny Valley. Pictured: Amahna McCall.

One of the dynamic aspects of the Minnesota Fringe Festival is that the lineup continues to change even right before the festival opens as shows are rewritten or written from scratch. Just last week, a late dropout was replaced by Green Sea Productions’ Abreast of Burlesque.

Here’s the final lineup:
