After a couple of years of all or mostly virtual performances, the St. Louis Fringe Festival is back this week, all live, with 30-something shows. There was a by-invitation warm-up last night with Fringe favorite Dawn Larsen. She is from the Missouri Ozarks, spent many years in the Nashville music scene and has a Ph.D. in theater and performance studies. Her songs got us ready for days of performances. The main events run Wednesday through Sunday. Locals, you owe it to yourself to check this out.
