Toronto Fringe, 2018

By // Theatre (Toronto)

We’re doing it this year, guys. With a team of nine writers, we’re reviewing every single show in the Toronto Fringe Festival (not including KidsFest, you gotta leave something to strive for). Or at least we’re going to try. This is the landing page where you’ll be able to find all of our Fringe reviews as soon as they’re posted. Check back regularly and follow us on both Twitter and Instagram at @MyEntWorld to stay up to date on what we’re seeing.

New This Year: 

SOCIAL MEDIA SCAVENGER HUNT!!!
Head to our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages to find out how you can play to win FREE TICKETS and DRINKS at PostScript, the Fringe patio bar. We’ve put together a list of missions that represent the full Toronto Fringe experience so get in the game to get the most out of your festival (and also FREE TICKETS and DRINKS).

Advertise Your Fringe Show:

Want your poster featured in our sidebar where it will be seen by every single person who checks out any of our Fringe reviews? We know your budget is already strapped so our starting rate is just $10 per 500 pageviews.
Email editors@myentertainmentworld.ca to order today.

The Artists’ Advertising Discount Program
If your Fringe show scores an A+ or A, you can cash in on that goodwill with a 50% discount on advertising your show (this one or the next one) on My Entertainment World. If you scored an A- or B+, we’ll knock 25% off the ad price. Discounts also apply to all 2017 Critics’ Pick Award winners (50% off), and nominees (25% off) and $5+ Patreon donors have a reusable 10% off they can gift to ANY PRODUCER THEY WANT for the duration of the festival. Discounts go as high as 95%; email us for details.

“Play Of The Day” Ad Auction
If you get a good review (B or better), you can bid to become our Play of The Day (prime advertising spot at the top of the homepage AND here on our Fringe landing page). Bidding starts at $5 a day. Whomever is the highest bidder as of midnight each night of the festival gets the spot for the next 24 hours or until their bid is beaten (whichever comes second). To bid, just submit a .jpg of your poster to toronto@myentertainmentworld.ca with the subject line “Play of the Day” and be sure to mention your bid price in the email.
