The 2014 Toronto Fringe Festival

By // Theatre (Toronto)

20120704-Toronto-Fringe-0052-2-Photo_by_Corbin_Smith-640x426 2The Toronto Fringe Festival had 150 shows this year. We never had any hope of covering them all with our small but spirited staff of 4 but we were determined to come as close as we could. So, over the course of ten days, Kelly, Justis and Thea (with a 2-show assist from Marty and 1 from Jess!) galavanted across the city taking in 66 different Fringe performances.

The play titles with letter grades and links to our reviews are listed below in chronological order by reviewer.
