Fringe Festival

A little bizarre, a bit offbeat and quite definitely original, the Capital Fringe Festival is all about art outside the lines. The festival, the first of its kind in Washington, offers a celebration of the avant-garde in the performing arts. More than 100 performers from theater, music, dance, spoken word and puppetry will present more than 400 performances at about 30 venues during the 11-day festival, which runs Thursday through July 30. From Cordelia's Fool, a one-woman clown show with Wyckham Avery inspired by Shakespeare's King Lear (July 23-30 at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. N.W.), to Vaud Rats, an original ukulele operetta by theater artist K. Brian Neel (July 23-30 at the Warehouse Downtown Arts Center, 1021 Seventh St. N.W.), the shows are unusual and inventive.
