CFF22: My Fringe Show Rankings

CFF22_Rosegold logoUpdated for a little more context: The question I get asked most by people with limited time and resources is, which shows are a “must see.” And I give them my bias answer, based on how I reacted to the shows. That being said, it’s not like I’ve been disappointed by any of the performances I’ve attended this year. Please understand that differences between shows in the rankings can be infinitesimal. And I guarantee everyone’s list is different and just as valid.

And if you do decide to attend, I highly recommend you look at all the options. Aside from the fact that there are still plenty of shows I just haven’t seen yet. If a show sounds interesting to you, I highly encourage you to see it. Grab a friend, split a flex pass and hit three shows. You never know what you might discover. Happy Fringing.

My Rankings

  1. ROSEGOLD
    Donna Kay Yarborough is all-in emotionally in her intense, extremely well-acted one-woman show.
  2. HEDY: The Life and Inventions of Hedy Lamarr
    Heather Massie impresses as Lamarr (and the multiple characters she interacts with) in this engaging show exploring Hedy’s life.
  3. BE MY THIEF
  4. JINKIES!
    Jordan Trovillion & Trey Tatum return as the teen sleuth and her faithful dog companion. Imaginative, clever and funny, JINKIES is an enjoyable sequel completely accessible even if you missed the 2019 original production, ZOINKS!
