KDVR - June 21, 2022
"This year, the Denver Fringe Festival is going hybrid, with live performances at indoor and outdoor venues in Five Points and throughout the RiNo Art District as well as livestreaming and pre-recorded shows from local and out-of-state artists."
“Ann Sabbah knew when she attended the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017 that such an event belonged in Denver ... Denver, she thought, is brimming with talent and artistic innovation. It has one of the highest arts participation rates per capita of any city in the country. This has to happen in Denver, she thought. And I’m going to make it happen.”
“After years of talk and all manner of splintering organizing efforts, not even the COVID shutdown could stop Founding Producer Ann Sabbah from fulfilling her mission to launch the Denver Fringe Festival, which took place online from June 25-28. The lineup included theater performances, solo performances, stand-up comedy, improv, circus arts, magic, choose-your-own adventures and more. More than 500 tickets were sold to viewers in 30 states, said Sabbah, sister of late Denver playwright Jeff Carey. About 50 percent of the artists were local to Colorado.”
