Aug. 17-26

Various locations

This year’s fest has 68 shows to choose from ranging from family-friendly magic shows to recommended-for-adult-audiences burlesque. In between, there’s drama, comedy and a sequel to last year’s hit, “Schoolhouse Wrong.” Indy Fringe, now in its eighth year, is wisely structured so that all six participating theater spaces have shows running at the same time. Each of these shows runs about an hour, taking most patrons off the street during show times. But then there’s that half-hour gap between them to schmooze, compare notes, grab a frozen yogurt, and hustle to the next show.

The system makes it possible to see as many as seven shows in a day—not that I’d recommend that kind of overload. Rather, try a trio of shows in a day with some time off for lunch or dinner. Each show will set you back $10. (Full disclosure: I co-created one of the 68 shows.) Full schedule and details here.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
