If there's one thing the Edinburgh Fringe Festival teaches you, it's not to take your audiences for granted. In between meetings, tech, pitching the show, Meet the Media, and numerous other photocopying, postering, and props errands, we've been catching some other shows, and have realized that audiences of 4 - 6 people are all too common. The Fringe has over 3,000 shows all competing for the same audience, in the same city, over the same few hours of the day. Just check out our photo of the Royal Mile and you'll see what we mean! Thus, every day, we're out for three and a half hours before the show "busking": handing out Kevin McBee's beautifully designed postcards, mini bottle of Tabasco sauce (for our spicy couple!), and badges. It's the habitual Fringe fashion of getting butts in the seats. As we set out this morning, we knew we had some seats sold and a reviewer coming, but we didn't know how large our audience would be. Happily, we ended up with 18 people in the house, and a truly excellent opening performance! We're crossing our fingers that we keep doing as well for our entire run!
