Wow, there's nothing in the world like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! With 3,000+ shows all vying for the same audiences and the same reviewers, you're in for a rough ride as a new show, trying to get a foothold and notice amidst the whiz-bang of the Festival (now you see why we've been remiss in blogging!). Nevertheless, we've consistently been getting audiences who are touched by the show, and who have been amazing in Tweeting their support and posting reviews on our EdFringe page. We've also been hitting the stages around the Fringe Festival and meeting all kinds of other performers. We're constantly inspired by the determined artists who wend their way to the Fringe and brave the crowds of performers, potential audience members, and reviewers to ply their art and tell their stories. We've found a number of other shows about immigration and identity that really speak to WAITLESS'' themes; we've met comedians in pubs; we've really connected with all our "Greenside Family" -- the other shows playing in Greenside Venues; and we've experienced avant garde theatre, modern dance, butoh, puppetry, opera, musicals, drag shows, and straight theatre. With one week to go, we're tired, but running high on energy and on the amazing support from our audiences!
