2014 IndyFringe Festival Review Guide

Mission accomplished! We spent 100-plus hours and $1,000-plus worth of (comped) tickets, while destroying 10,000-plus brain cells, in the effort to once again review everything the IndyFringe Festival has to offer on its opening weekend. The results follow, including a few more five-star and a few less one-star reviews than usual. Here's a general rubric for how we allot stars: 5 for life-altering, 4 for excellent, 3 for good, 2.5 for mediocre, 2 for pretty bad and 1 for execrable. Of course, any experience could be life-altering if you haven't lived very long or have a low bar for what constitutes a mind-blowing experience. But we'd like to think that if we've given the show five stars, there's a good chance you'll walk out of it a slightly different person. Happy Fringing!
