The Minnesota Fringe 2014, Part II: “The acting is not taking place down there most of the time.”

This episode focuses on a “best of” the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Trying to construct a “best of” or a “Top 5″ list (as we do in this episode) is always more difficult than I anticipate. Some may be able to create such a list without a problem, but for me, placement is dependent on my mood or what I’m currently thinking about. So too with my panelists–one tier for a person might have two shows, or a person’s list may be focused on “Top 5 First-Time Producers.” But alternate approaches and experiences are very much welcome, and give the show a wider breadth.

My Fringe experience was truncated, so I’d like to extend a special thanks to Rob CallahanMatthew A. EverettWendy Gennaula, and Kate Hoff for providing their fantastic insights into this year’s festival.
