Yesterday I bought tickets for my Thursday and Friday shows, but before I could do much more planning I knew I needed a program. There are just too many BYOVs and I am loath to do the planning and buy tickets and then find out I have 15 minutes to get from Fringe Village to Expressionz Cafe or The stanley Milner Library. Can't be done. So, I went down to the Box Offic, picked up my tickets (all for shows in the Village proper) and bought my Program. The Program is the most valuable resource for any die-hard fringer, especially with the plethora of BYOVs. If you casually fringe you can probably get away with not buying one - but I have to very carefully plan my fringe experience so I have to make it work right and there are shows I want to see at these off-site BYOVs so I have to figure out when I will get to them.
