IndyFringe 2022

Here is the list of our reviews for the 2022 IndyFringe, the Indianapolis Theatre Fringe Festival, Aug. 18-Sept. 4, at six venues — two each at the IndyFringe building on St. Clair; District Theatre on Mass. Ave.; and the Athenaeum, where Massachusetts Ave. meets New Jersey and Michigan streets.

John and Wendy like to “Iron Fringe,” seeing as many of the numerous shows as possible, taking up nearly every time slot, likely the most comprehensive coverage in local media. While seeing every act may not be possible, we did not purposely avoid seeing anyone. Ones we have seen before got lower priority, and past reviews can be found elsewhere on the site.
