From 27th May to 4th June, 7 venues in the centre of Prague come alive with 246 English-language performances of 39 different productions, by performers from 15 countries, as part of the Prague Fringe festival theatre/music/comedy festival.
The Prague Fringe 2011 Programme has just been posted. If you’re planning a trip to Prague around this time, you should seriously consider trying to coincide with the Fringe. If you’re going to be in town, you’d be mad to miss it. As the festival progresses we’ll post links to sites with reviews and updated information.
Tickets for each performance are 150Kc (under $10) or you can buy a 5-pack of Fringe vouchers for 600Kc (the price of 4 tickets). Students get the best deal – tickets for non-sold-out performances cost just 50Kc and can be bought from 30 minutes before the performance starts, you’ll need your student ID card.
Disclosure – Gail (AKA The Human Jukebox) is a friend, but even if she wasn’t, her show is a must-see. For the first 3 nights of Fringe only you can catch her Human Jukebox show at Malostranska Beseda and be blown away by her superb (classically trained) voice and astonishing recall of the lyrics of the thousand songs that make up her repertoire.
