The Local Show goes from the world of opera and the symphony to the fringes of the art scene in Kansas City. Yes, it’s that time again for the Fringe Festival. Now in its eighth year, the 11-day festival is jam packed with live theater, dance, performance and visual art, puppetry and storytelling, bellydancing, plays, film and fashion.
Twenty venues stretching from the Crossroads into Midtown are slated to host more than 400 performances . Nick Haines gets a preview from Fringe Festival executive director Cheryl Kimmi.
