TENSHOWS I’M LOOKINGFORWARD TO AT 2016 HOLLYWOODFRINGE
I attended the first five Hollywood Fringe Festivals before missing last year. I am very excited about attending this year’s event, and will arrive on Saturday, June 11. I am currently scheduled to attend 29 shows, with time for a few more. These are the 10 shows I can’t wait to see (in alphabetical order):
A Feast of Snacks – Theatre Unleashed has consistently put on some of the best productions at every Fringe. This one contains four mini-musicals. How do you top that?
A Horse with a View – I met Chris Piehler last year at the Zootown Fringe Festival and he blew me away with his show. Looking forward to seeing what he has for us this year.
All the Best Killers are Librarians – Sacred Fools is legendary for putting on good theater. Their serial killer series was one that I wanted to see had I been in LA. Since they are offering a couple of them during the Fringe, they immediately went on my list.

Gilda used humor and laughter to get through the struggles and cruelty of a life cut short, from being the fat kid to a young woman on top of her game struck with terminal cancer. Her comedy truly made fun of the very things she battled. This show is for all us who loved watching her on SNL each week and also for the younger generations to transport them back to a time wh
