This was my first experience at the Fringe Festival, and I have to say it was a great introduction. It's a series of four (well, six, kinda) short sketches that each take place in Minneapolis. Like a lot of other reviewers, I really enjoyed The Strike, which was probably the most serious in tone, about the labor riots in the 30s. That said, I thought the acting and overall production was strong across the board. And yes, it was hot in the space. The fans were definitely needed. Overall, The 612 was well arranged and successfully balanced levity and drama through each of its sketches. Well done!
