As eating, sleeping, and the occasional ablution were sadly necessary, we could not cover all 200 FringeNYC shows. Perhaps you can. If not, some tuneful suggestions:
Martha & Me: Those not under house arrest may wish to attend Sunny Turner and Robert Rokicki’s new musical. A woman obsessed with the disgraced diva prepares Thanksgiving dinner for her family.
Die, Die, Diana: Though the “Diana and Dodi” memorial bodega that once graced Third Avenue has undergone a name change, interest hasn’t waned in Di, Dodi, or the car crash that killed them. Scott Sublett’s seditious show alleges that the smashup was no accident.
Angry Young Teen-Age Girl Gang: “Clean teen” Didi gets down and dirty in this femme gem by David G. Smith and Mark W. Knowles. A hit in L.A., the show features a four-piece beatnik band doing “Ballerina With a Blade” and “Reform School Rock.” Dig it.
Jonestown the Musical: Refreshments at the Fringe are few and far between (though Pith! does feature a pie social), but no matter how thirsty you may be, please don’t drink the Kool-Aid at this melodious ode to Jim Jones and the mass Guyanan suicide he led.
