About Minnesota Fringe

There is one big thing that makes Fringe different from any other event in town: All the shows you'll see at Fringe were selected randomly by lottery.

Yep. That's right. Each year the lineup is crafted by placing numbered ping-pong balls into a bingo cage and drawing them out, one by one. From stage veterans to people who are brand new to theater, Minnesota Fringe is a forum for anyone with a story to tell. We also provide the necessary support to make producing a show as easy as possible, regardless of where you land on the artistic spectrum.

Anyone (yes, anyone) can apply to have a show in the festival. If you'd like to have a show in our next festival, applications will go live in November here on our website. Sign up for our newsletter to receive a reminder as well as information about other theater events happening around town.

The mission of the Minnesota Fringe is to promote creative freedom and diversity of artistic expression by linking adventurous artists with adventurous audiences. Thank you for joining in this adventure!

Showtimes

Shows start and end on time at Fringe. With 850 performances of 167 shows in just 11 days, we have to run a tight schedule to avoid descending into chaos. Performances are no more than 60 minutes long with a half hour between each show.

On weekdays shows begin at 5:30pm, 7pm, 8:30pm and 10pm. On weekends there are additional shows at 1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm.

Late seating: There is NO LATE SEATING at Minnesota Fringe. In addition to keeping our schedule, late seating is a safety issue for artists and audiences.

Safety for artists: Some of our theaters require that patrons walk across parts of the stage to reach the seating area, and many of our production companies’ stage work encompasses entrances and exits from the house.

Safety for audiences: Entering a darkened theater, possibly for the first time, and trying to find open seats puts patrons and volunteers at unnecessary risk.

Close this

Fringe Central

Fringe Central, sponsored by Surly Brewing and hosted by Grumpy's Bar & Grill - Downtown, serves as the late-night watering hole for artists, staff, volunteers and audience members alike. Come in after a day full of shows to grab a beer and some bar food. Talk about what you loved and what you didn’t. Meet the artists behind the scenes and actors on the stage. Find out what you should see tomorrow or dream up your own idea for next year. You never know what will happen during Fringe, but dropping by Fringe Central gives you a serious head start.

What to Wear

Shorts and a t-shirt. Seriously. Also, a pair of comfy shoes will serve you well in case you have to wait in line. Pro tip: Most Fringe shows take place indoors in air-conditioned venues, so having a layer to throw on in case you get chilly is also advisable.

Close this

Choosing a Show

With 850 performances of 167 shows, it's scandalous to see just one. But how to choose the perfect lineup?

Search by genre: You can filter for genres when trying to decide what to see.

Talk to people: It only sounds scary. Just look for the folks in lanyards. Lanyards are worn by Fringe artists and there are at least a thousand of them dying to tell you about their show.

Read and write reviews: See what audiences are raving about on our audience review page, then return the favor and let others know what you thought.

Fantastic....but must be into D&D.

I wish I had played D&D at least once before seeing this show. Acting was fantastic. Loved the costumes. But....as a non D&D nerd, I was lost most of the time.

The Waiting Is The Hardest Part

What do D&D monsters do while waiting around for us? A cute minimalist play that turns the DM screen around and reminds us 'Aren't we all just trying to get by'?

Roll a d20 to try to see this show

by Imawizard Notafighter on August 12, 2017
This user has reviewed 4 shows

The DC of the roll is 13.

If you didn't understand that joke it's okay! As many reviewers have already said you need no prior knowledge of D&D (or any tabletop role-playing for that matter) to enjoy this show, nor do you need to be well versed in the works of Beckett. Dekker and Gulliver have created a show with excellent dialogue and characters that manages to capture the essence of Godot and D&D without alienating a wider audience. Only ONE show left, don't critically miss your chance to see this play! This reviewer has failed his wisdom save and been completely Charmed by the preformers. All the actors bring an excellent energy to the stage, the kind I always like to see in a Fringe show. Bravo! Excelsior! Looking forward to next year!

Everyone should see

by Erika Jones on August 12, 2017
This user has reviewed 2 shows

This is the best show I've seen so far this year. The script is beautifully and hilariously crafted and wonderfully performed by the entire cast. Their comedic timing is gold. I was especially impressed with Saxe and Glover in their respective roles. Also I have to point out that this show had a number really nice stage pictures which seems to get lost in most fringe shows.
And to anyone worried they might not understand the show because they don't know D&D or Gadot trust me you don't need to know either to enjoy the show. I'm only vaguely familiar with each and there might have been a joke or two that went over my head but I was laughing till my stomach hurt the rest of the show so it really doesn't matter.

Why didn't I think of that before?

by Jessica Solinsky on August 12, 2017
This user has reviewed 5 shows

As a dungeon crawler, I've never thought about the monsters that I've slayed. This is a delightful look into what the "monsters" do while they wait for adventurers. It may also make you question who the real monsters are as well. Be sure to get there early though because it's definitely a hard show to get into if you're running late.

Godot + D&D = Very funny show

by Derek Dirlam on August 12, 2017
This user has reviewed 3 shows

Thankfully I got in line early for this one :) A great performance, and a perfect mash-up of Waiting for Godot and D&D. Although I don't think you need to be a big D&D fan to enjoy this one. Yes there are a few D&D specific references, but the humor still really lies in the interplay between the monstrous duo, and what happens when...well, you just have to see it.

Great performances from the entire cast, excellent timing, a fantastic script that kept the humor coming and the plot moving , and even great staging - interesting while not feeling too repetitious.

Highly recommend this, but make sure you get a reservation or get in line early, as it did sell-out. Maybe they'll consider a re-mount in the future???

Not an expert, still laughed

by Becci Schmidt on August 9, 2017
This user has reviewed 3 shows

I have a rudimentary working knowledge of D&D and absolutely no experience with Waiting for Gadot, other than Waiting For Guffman. I still loved this play. I'll admit a joke or two went over my head and I may have laughed for different reasons, but I was still laughing. My only critque and it might be show and space specific, was when Lucky finally has her monologue, slow down. In that space we lost a lot of articulation and I wanted to hear everything, but just got a lot of echos.

Nerds rule!

by Robb Krueger on August 8, 2017
This user has reviewed 4 shows

Funny, well planned and expertly executed, this show's only weakness is that you need to know a little (not a lot) about D&D to get it. The script is engaging, endowing mythical creatures with all-too-human weaknesses and foibles, resulting in a great deal of "monster banter" that drives the plot forward. Great performances by all the actors, who work together as an ensemble very well. One needs to know nothing about Beckett's play to enjoy the show, but there are some Easter eggs for those who do. One of the cleverest shows I've seen at the Fringe this year and past years.

Waiting for Gygax

by Jessica Lindgren on August 7, 2017

A few jokes went over my head - my husband is the D&D geek in our household. Lost the first few of Lucky's lines due to loud volume (she can PROJECT) in a small space. Their staging worked well in the Rarig X.

Worth the wait in line for this sellout

by Amy Pleticha on August 7, 2017
This user has reviewed 2 shows

I don't know much about the source material "Waiting for Gadot" but I what I do know of the source was it was boring. That is why I am happy that this play moved in a direction that didn't elapse so much time.

D&D I know a bit. I think one of the jokes went over my head, but it might be worth seeing again just to see it I can understand it the second time around. It was nice to be in a theater with other geeks.

Only feedback was I think that some of Pazzo's opening lines were hard to here, but I don't think it was important because the emotion is more important.

Overall great performance. I would say get in line quickly cause it sold out when we started to move into the theater.

I don't know DnD, so I had no idea what the heck was happening. Acting seemed good, although the masks hindered full expression. I'm sure if you know DnD, it will be a lot funnier.


Fun mash-up of Brecht and D&D

by Hazen Markoe on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 6 shows

Riffing on Brecht's WAITING FOR GADOT and D&D, this delightful show proves you don't have to be familiar with either to enjoy its quirky mix of wit, metaphysical discussion, and comedy! The ensemble cast all turn in solid performances, while the script by Kyle B. Dekker & Jacob Gulliver make this show a tempting addition for Sci-Fi conventions everywhere.

Light the Kettle

by Jeff Cawhorn on August 6, 2017

This is a delightful mash-up and great fun to watch. It's not necessary to have read Beckett or played D&D to enjoy the play. It may be funnier if you have, and I got the feeling most of us in the audience had. It's too bad they can't move it to a bigger venue. It would probably sell out whatever theater it's in.

Damn the Bards!

by Joe Allen on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 17 shows

In concept and in the majority of execution this play hits a true mark.

Mis-matched buddy comedy, where one buddy is the awkward, sweet nerd in your party, and the other is the awkward, sweet theatre-nerd in your party. You may very well have both these things inside of you.

There are some fun physical-comedy japes, but some of them feel forced.

Most of the jokes are fun cerebral riffs on the tropes of gaming and fantasy lore. If this isn't your alley I'm not sure nearly half of them will land.

Found some treasure

by John Harrington on August 6, 2017

I’m more familiar with D&D than Beckett, so I may have missed a few of the jokes there. I don’t think you really need to go in with more than a passing knowledge of either to enjoy it though. The characters played off each other really well and it made for some great laughs.

Critical Success!

by Kyle Decker on August 6, 2017

Waiting for Gygax demonstrates clear love for both DnD & Waiting for Godot while still being very approachable to newcomers. Instead of relying on cheap jokes and references, Waiting for Gygax gets its humor from its wonderful cast of characters. If you like watching hi-jinks from a cast of fun, dynamic characters, you'll like this show.

Someone with little D&D or WFG knowledge

by Robin Rayfield on August 6, 2017

I've only seen Waiting for Godot parodies, and all I know of Dungeons and Dragons is things people have said about it. This show, however, had some funny moments, and it was well performed. The costuming was also great, and I definitely think it was worthwhile.

I have a member of the nonprofit I manage involved with this show.

I had been looking forward to this show for many weeks and it didn't disappoint. I liked how the writer dealt with issues we normally do not hear about when storytelling in fantasy. Great use of the space and costuming. It was funny at times and punny at others. It was a treat to see on this busy day.

You Should Gather Your Party For This

by Thomas Pitkin on August 5, 2017
This user has reviewed 2 shows

This play was everything I hoped it would be. The plot is a loving homage to both it's sources of inspiration with a strong focus on its characters. The actors sell these characters with every movement and expression while still managing to be quite funny. The writers clearly knew how to write jokes without breaking character and that consistency left me both invested in the characters' struggles and amused by them. The D&D references, while not the funniest jokes of the play, always brought a smile to my face and detract in no way to the experience of those unfamiliar.

Critical hit

by Jesse Richards on August 5, 2017

A somewhat plodding opening is soon shown to be deliberate, as the Beckett homage shifts into high gear. The puns and gaming references never distract or interrupt the flow, however, and while the characters aren't particularly complex they're portrayed earnestly and well.

Fun Show with a Fun Cast

by Morgan Strickland on August 4, 2017
This user has reviewed 1 show

This was a fun show with a good script and great actors. This play is perfect if you're looking for a good laugh in a unique fantasy setting. While it is a play about Dungeons and Dragons based on the play 'Waiting for Godot', you don't need to know anything about either of those things to enjoy this show. The physical comedy was fantastic, and while all of the actors were on point, Commarrah Bashar blew it out of the water.

Worth waiting for.

by Captain Heck on August 4, 2017

I'm no expert on Dungeons and Dragons, but I have played enough games to have wondered about the possible rich inner lives of characters you randomly meet and yes, sometimes destroy within seconds of game play. This is an intriguing and entertaining telling of what those characters might discuss and debate should they ever meet. Excellently acted and directed in a perfectly dungeon like theater space, come on down to the Rarig basement for some laughs and adventure.

Shall we go to Gygax? Yes. You should Go

by Zander Lee on August 4, 2017
This user has reviewed 5 shows

I'm more familiar with Beckett than Dungeons & Dragons, but that didn't really matter in this highly enjoyable classic Fringe mash-up of a show. The writers did a great job capturing the pace and feel of Becketts absurdist classic. It starts a bit slow (but that's INTENTIONAL), kicks into a higher gear with the appearance of Pozzo & Lucky, slows down, picks up when they return, and then becomes very moving at the end. All four actors each have their shining moments, with Saxe especially standing out as the blustery Pozzo. D&D fans will probably catch more references than I did, you don't need to know either source to enjoy it, but it helps. Some cleverly funny lines, great comedy fight scene, fun costumes, & a perfect Beckett-like ending.

Whether you are a fan of the D&D genre or not, if you love tales of adventure and great witty dialogue, this is the play for you. With limited knowledge of D&D, I was still moved by the monsters banter and emotional growth as they seek glory and validation for their existence. Isn't that something we all can relate to? A great reference to a wonderful play... you will find yourself laughing at the geeky puns and invested in each characters' motives that have you wishing for more!

A Delightfully Well-Crafted Mash-Up

by Cetius d'Raven on August 4, 2017
This user has reviewed 50 shows

Disclaimer: I have a working relationship with talent involved in the show

Fans of both Godot and D&D will find jokes aplenty in this comedy mash-up, and some jokes are obscure enough to prove that the writers are obviously deeply familiar with both and happy to cater to fellow super-fans of those properties. While the pacing is akin to Godot (somewhat slow), there is sufficient action and narrative to keep one's interest. I recommend giving this one a watch.

Watching this show made me reminisce about my youthful adventures playing D&D. The actors and playwright do a good job of paying homage to both Dungeons and Dragons, and also the source material of Waiting for Godot. Also adding to the sense of nostalgia were the very home-made costumes. Congrats to the cast and crew for creating a fun Fringe piece.

Nerd Venn Diagram Sweet Spot

by Nick Glover on August 3, 2017
This user has reviewed 4 shows

(Disclaimer - I'm married to a cast memeber. I'll do my damnedest to be impartial and whatnot)

I've been playing D&D for 23 years & I've been doing theater for about 5 years shy of that. So when someone does a Dungeons and Dragons-themed Becket parody, well, it fills my nerd heart with joy. But even if you weren't familiar with this show's inspirations, I don't think you'd feel alienated. Lots of physical humor, one or two PG-13 risqué jokes, and great performances will entertain just about anyone. My only critique was that it keeps the pacing of its stage inspiration, luckily it's not nearly as long, so it never gets boring.

Delightful even for a D&D alien.

by Heather Rand on August 3, 2017
This user has reviewed 7 shows

This show was well-acted by each cast member--their contributions were unique and complemented each other well. The costumes were fantastic! I am not a person who knows D&D at all and I've never seen "Waiting for Gadot" but neither of those things detracted from my viewing. There is great character development throughout and each character is dynamic and with clear motivations. My only complaint is that the beginning felt slow, but I think that was probably as a result of my lack of knowledge rather than a shortcoming on part of actors or writing. The show is very well suited to the venue, it felt intimate. I sat in the front row and really got to enjoy the detail of the well crafted costumes and props. Highly recommend!

An endearing and enjoyable tribute

by Zachary Mann on August 3, 2017
This user has reviewed 1 show

Light hearted and humorous, this play still doesn't lose the spirit of Beckett's's original work. A loving tribute, the crew's passion for its two inspirations is evident in the play's dual homage. It's filled with fantastic character driven comedy and sprinkled with clever allusions to D&D. You don't have to be a geek to find joy in this wonderful production. The chemistry of the actors and the writer/director's obvious love for craft meld into something truly special. Don't miss it.
