The Capital Fringe Festival began last Thursday and will run through Sunday July 26th. The 18 day festival featuring local and non-local theater groups, dancers, and musicians has shows in five venues in the Mount Vernon Square and Penn Quarter neighborhoods. The headquarters venue occupies the old A.V. Ristorante building (607 New York Ave NW) and is affectionately coined Fort Fringe. The adjacent outdoor beer garden space has been transformed into Baldacchino Gypsy Tent Bar.
