Staff Picks of Fringe: Single and Alone

Posted by on Jul 12, 2018

We return to the popular blog series we launched in 2017 wherein our summer staff members offer up curated lists of Fringe shows under a chosen theme. With so much on offer, these lists give you one way to help you navigate the Fringe this summer! Each list features six shows, meaning you can catch them all with a single Fringe Binge Pass. The first in our series is Fringe Binge: Single and Alone, with selections from Gina, our Fringe Club Assistant.

 

Do you want to see a Fringe show? Are you single and don’t have a partner to go to the theatre with? Do your friends think going to see shows is boring? Will you be forced to go alone? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the answer for you! Check out these six shows that are fun for even if you’re going alone and can help pinch that romance nerve in your body!
