Those folks who fondly recall John Troyer's Fringe show in a short-lived venue called John Troyer's Apartment a few years back should be alerted to this year's performances in nonstandard locales. The Neo-Futurists' Drinking and Writing will appropriately be held at Grumpy's Bar, and Gwen Hairy Gwen Gloss, a comedy about hairdressers, is at Jungle Red Salon.
Advance tickets and passes are available through UptownTix at 612.604.4466; or check the website, www.uptowntix.com. Tickets can also be bought at the door. Please ignore the lonely scalper in front of Acadia Café. Shows can be canceled and times sometimes change, so do consult the snazzier-than-ever Fringe website, www.fringefestival.org, for more information.
