S5E36: The Reviewers’ Revue

It’s closing weekend of Where the Wild things Fringe, and Fawnda is joined by a panel of writers from Beer Tent Reviews to discuss highlights, lowlights, and happenings at this year’s festival grounds. Their discussion includes: holdovers, Sterling Award bets, star-rating bell curves, classics vs. new works, audience participation issues, and other monsters. It’s a DOOZIE. Enjoy!

Special thanks to our guests:

Season 4, Episode 37 ~ Le Season Finale

Fringe postersIt’s a special “On the Media” episode of

IDGI to wrap up our fourth(!) season of reviewing what we’ve seen on YEG stages. We cover some of our Fringe faves, critique the critics, the bewildering “star-creep” of some outlets, and muse about the new era of arts coverage in the city. Plus, convos about the new Sterling Awards non-gendered acting categories, and just-what-the-heck happened with the PR mess at Alberta Theatre Projects earlier this summer.

From the controversial use of star reviews to who has the right to review shows, this episode opens the hood to look at the criticism engine that can make or break an artist’s Fringe run.
