Toronto Fringe, 2018

By // Theatre (Toronto)

July 4-15th, with a team of nine writers, we reviewed every single show in the Toronto Fringe Festival (not including KidsFest, you gotta leave something to strive for).  Below you can find the complete list of shows with letter grades and links to our reviews. Check out our Twitter and Instagram @MyEntWorld for more from our Fringe 2018 experience and Huge Congratulations to Victoria Laberge who took first place in our first ever Fringe Social Media Scavenger Hunt and won a pair of tickets to the Patrons Pick performance of Anywhere after completing 10 festival-themed missions and documenting her hunt on social media.

Reminder to Fringe Artists: 
If your Fringe show scored an A+ or A, you can cash in on that goodwill with a 50% discount on advertising your next show 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 lend to anyone they want when they’re not using it. Discounts go as high as 95%; email us for details.
