Orlando Fringe Review: Tripping balls at Fringe

Theatre Review: Fringe Year-Round presents Kevin Thornton’s “Stairway to Kevin”

Last weekend’s “Come Out With Pride” parade and associated events were a fabulous celebration for Orlando’s GLBT community, and/or a huge traffic headache if you live downtown.
