Friday-Saturday: Nights on the Fringe

July 8-9

The annual Charm City Fringe Festival—a ten-day, multi-venue live theater series focused on non-traditional and independent performance—is still months away. But you can get an early taste of the region’s puppeteers, comics, circus and sideshow artists, dancers, poets, actors, and more in just two nights. A few highlights from the second annual Nights on the Fringe: Baltimore's 2015 Poet Laureate Derick Ebert; A Fool’s Paradise, an interactive game in which the audience calls out Shakespeare scenes and skilled actors rush to perform them rapidly until the clock runs out; short films curated by the Maryland Film Festival; and local hip-hop dance crew Bmore Than Dance. The creators have dubbed Nights on the Fringe “the new ‘Netflix and chill’”—which I guess means we’re supposed to bone our dates while we’re there? 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Baltimore Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., (410) 752-8558,, $17 for single show, $30 for two-night pass. (Maura Callahan)
