St. Lou Fringe Fest

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 27 2016

St. Lou Fringe Fest is back in its new late-summer slot with even more performances (109 different shows) spread across seven venues in Grand Center throughout the next two weeks (August 19 to 27; www.stlfringe.com). From hyper-political puppet shows (Big Hair, Big Dreams: The Mini Donald Trump Musical) to Shakespearean cabaret (Origins of Love), this year's Fringe Fest has something for everyone. No show costs more than $15 to see, and your best value is one of the super-affordable ticket packages — how does five shows for $37 sound? Great, right?
