Several shows included in the New Orleans Fringe Festival have extended their runs.
Sarah (reviewed below) has added two weekends(Dec. 8-11, 15-18). Staged in a Bywater home under renovation, it's the story of a couple struggling to maintain some semblance of balance and sanity as their world and relationship is turned upside down.
Nancy Hartman's (pictured) politically incorrect travelogue Shut Up, You're Fat, which was cancelled during the festival, is running at Cafe Istanbul (8 p.m. Mon.-Wed., Dec. 5-7, 12-14). Hartman recounts tales of touring with Penn & Teller at renaissance faires and the humiliating tribulations of trying to make it in show business. And it's a scratch-and-sniff show for willing participants.
Pchile Goyin is running this Thursday and Friday. The phantasmagoric show follows a woman who is swallowed by a lake and appears in another world and sense of consciousness in a piece incorporating masks, puppets and physical theater. The performance is at 1919 Burgundy Street. Visit the website for details about the show and reservations.
