Montreal Fringe Festival; Until June 19th

Posted by Amie / June 3, 2011

Being Earnest at the Montreal Fringe FestivalThe Montreal Fringe Fest is back its lineup of affordable lottery-chosen theatre, art, spoken word, sleep-away camp, beer, music, drag races, and dance parties. Here's a rundown on some of the best of the fest.

Lets Get Wilde

An updated Southern version of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. I know a few people who could benefit from a lesson in earnestness...Maybe those people could use a pair of tickets to this show? Win-win since they get to go to an entertaining theatre production complete with cafe setting and art gallery, and you get treated better.

Being Earnest
When: 13 Jun @ 9 PM, 15 Jun @ 7 PM, 16 Jun @ 9 PM, 17 Jun @ 7:30 PM
How much: $10 + $2 service charge, Students: $7 + $2 service charge
Buy tickets online or 1 hour before the show

"Robby Hoffman: Autobiography So What, You Think You're Better Than Me?"

All about being Jewish in Montreal. The blurb: Born in Brooklyn, Robby moved to Montréal in 1990's when plaid was the peak of fashion. She has since learned the joys and horrors of the great white north-turns out knowing Yiddish isn't exactly a transferable skill. Oh, and it turns out that there is something good about having 9 siblings: there's gotta be someone who F%&k-up more than you have. Robby's questionable sexual preference has nothing on her brother who knocked up a toothless girl from Charlemagne- talk about looking at the glass half full. It's no wonder Robby sees life somewhat differently- through a more neurotic, not quite pessimistic, hilariously charming point of view.

When: June 11, 12, 14, 17, 18 & 19
Where: Petit Campus
Same ticket deal. Online or 1 hour before
