The third iteration of the Providence Fringe Festival is the biggest yet, with a whole slew of locals and out-of-towners presenting edgy work that’s low investment (cheap and short) and high impact (potentially). Scattered across eight locations, I made a really ambitious and probably kind of unrealistic itinerary for the five night affair: highlights this year tend towards the historical and include pieces inspired by Greek mythology, 1940s radio dramas, and Victoria Woodhull, the first American woman to run for president. There’s also a surreal play about seventies airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper – an unsolved case that the FBI closed just a few weeks ago – as well as dance performances, music, comedy, and a whole family day on Saturday. Tonight’s two best bets are happening in the same space: poet Kate Colby’s Completist Panic at 7pm, followed by Passive Aggressive Novelty Company’s dance performance A Familiar Sense of Slip at 8pm.
