There are 500+ performances, covering more than 30 different venues around the city this September.
Fringe CEO and producer Erica Fee was a guest on Sunrise. She spoke to News 8’s Brennan Somers about one of the biggest draws this year, a free show on Parcel 5 featuring the insane acrobatics of Cirque Inextremiste.
“This is their U.S. debut and the show is called EXIT,” Fee explained. “It involves a hot air balloon — it’s tethered — with acrobats who are straight-jacketed hanging off of it including a suspended grand piano and they will be playing the grand piano.”
Fringe runs September 12-23. Some 100,000 people are expected to attend.
