Attendance at the Minnesota Fringe Festival was down by a significant percentage this year, what with opening weekend taking place almost immediately after the 35W bridge collapse. Actors Theater of Minnesota has put together a nifty slate of shows for those who stayed home, or heard the buzz about a hot show too late to catch it. Choices in this invitational series include the arch and funny Elizabethan farce Bards, Blue Collar Diaries, the always percussive Buckets and Tap Shoes, Amy Salloway's Circumference, From Here to Maternity, I Hate Kenny G (doesn't just about everyone?), and Take a Left at the Giant Cow. Call for specific showtimes or visit www.actorstheaterofminnesota.org.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 14. Continues through Oct. 12, 2007
