The first big weekend of the Fringe dawns. Opening weekend is wonderful for many reasons, but this is the first weekend after a week of experience with the Fringe audiences and seven days of marketing, reviewers, and media features. The wheat will start to be sorted out of the chaff now and it’ll be interesting to see where the ticket sales and sold out shows go to from last night and tonight.
