WaterTower Theatre’s 14th annual Out of the Loop Fringe Festival begins its 11-day run one month from today, and WTT artistic director has announced the lineup, which includes seven world premieres: You Need Go Search; iMy Sweet Bat-Cinera!; Melanchomedy: Funny Scenes about Sad Folks (pictured); Eating Pavement; Standing 8 Count; Nomad Americana; and The Spark, which is produced by the folks at WTT.
There is some specific gay content this season (as most seasons). QLive! — the live performance arm of Q Cinema — will return to the fest with the musical Thrill Me: The Leopold and Loeb Story. And Blaque to Blaque: A Trilogy of Short Plays features one about a gay man coming out to his two dads. The festival will also include dance, visual arts and standup comedy.
Single tickets ($10) go on sale Feb. 24, but festival passes ($55–$65) are available now, and reservations for passholders can begin on Feb. 11. You can see the entire schedule there.
