Know Theatre, Fringe Festival's hub of all things weird and theatric.

The Cincinnati Fringe Festival enters its 16th iteration on Friday, May 31 and runs through June 15. Cincy Fringe hosts a wide range of new and established local, national and international productions in a dozen venues across Over-the-Rhine, including onstage at Fringe producer Know Theatre, as well as The Mini Microcinema, Art Academy of Cincinnati, OTR Community Church and Gabriel’s Corner. (If you want to read more about the shows, read critic Jackie Mulay's guide here.)

With 34 shows in this year's lineup — not to mention the fest's other elements — Fringe can be a lot to take in, especially for newcomers. That's where CityBeat's team of reviewers come in. We're reviewing early-run performances of shows within the primary lineup and will post them on our Fringe Festival Coverage hub here
