My Fringe Schedule: Day 6

With a busy weekend of 19 performances, I’ve passed the halfway mark of this year’s Fringe experience. Monday’s two performances are:

2060 Theatrical Productions
Cincinnati, OH

Directed by Emma Miller
Cast: Julia Greer & Aaron Lynn

Ryan and Alice weren’t expecting to be trapped in the run-down bathroom at a Louisville apartment party – and they aren’t too thrilled with the situation. Can tales of sex, adolescent humiliation, and giant cream puffs distract them from a doomed attraction? Witty dialogue and honest observation drive this contemporary look at the unexpected strangers who shape our lives. A must-see comedy.

Cincinnati Fringe favorite Kevin Thornton returns this week with something complete new and different…

A mashup of Divine, Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Reggie Watts! This bizarre and hilarious drag queen performance uses vintage drum machines and synthesizers with stream of consciousness song lyrics to bring you into the strange mind of Cupcake Hawthorne. Performer Kevin Thornton is a veteran national fringe performer and 2010 New Faces winner at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles

Know Theatre is proud to announce that up-and-coming Nashville recording artists Indiana Queen will take the stage Saturday night during Cincinnati Fringe Festival’s Fringe Prom, on May 30 at 11 PM.

Indiana Queen is a new queer alt-country band fronted by longtime Fringe Festival artist Kevin Thornton. Indiana Queen’s music is described as having “traces of Hank Williams,” and “the pulse of ‘Jolene’”, but with a decidedly untraditional flair and rock-and-roll edge. Indiana Queen will be headlining Nashville Pride in June—but you can see them here first, at Know Theatre tomorrow night!

Indiana Queen joins us for our annual Fringe Prom, part of the nightly Bar Series events of the 12th Annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Our Fringe Prom theme this year is “Cowboys and Indie Bands,” so feel free to pick out your favorite Western wear, give it some hipster flavor, and rock out to the sweet sounds of Nashville’s kings of queer alt country.

The Cincinnati Fringe Festival runs through June 6th with over 180 performances from 45 productions, featuring more than 230 local, national, and international artists. This year the Festival is set to welcome over 8,000 visitors to Downtown and Over-the-Rhine. Every single night of the Festival, after your shows let out, we’ll be hosting a different Bar Series event, so join us at Fringe Headquarters at Know Theatre of Cincinnati to raise a glass, have some fun, and get a little weird.

For more information on Bar Series events, and tickets to all of the shows of the 12thAnnual Cincinnati Fringe Festival, visit www.cincyfringe.com.
