Top Fringe theatre and burlesque – from the man whose sees it all!

At the core of the Fringe Festival is a bewildering number of plays. Unless you’ve seen previous shows by the same people or have spoken with the performers and directors and heard what they’re planning, it’s hard to know what’s good early on in the festival, just based on descriptions in the programme. It’s also easy to lose track of the fact that there’s far more to the Fringe than just English language plays. Here is a list of English and French plays, musicals, dance, burlesque and for the sheer fun of it, puppet shows, that just stick out. These shows are mostly by people who have consistently wowed audiences with past Fringe performances and one or two that just look too interesting or outlandish from the descriptions to pass up.
