Sort of Fringey Alert: Spirit in the House

Fringe Baby Alert!

Spirit in the House

About Spirit in the House

Comedy writer, playwright, spiritual pioneer, Dean J. Seal, has created a festival in the twin cities that qualifies as a festival that’s sorta fringey. Since he’s the former executive director of the Minnesota Fringe, there are fringe elements to the way the festival is run and therefore it’s good enough to garner Mr. Fringey’s “new fringe baby” status. Although it’s three years old, this year seems like the first year that it’s relatively kink free. Mr. Fringey traveled out and performed in the festival 2 years ago (the exact same time as the bridge collapse) when it ran during the same time as the MN Fringe Fest and to be honest, it was an extremely hard show to market. But, hey it’s only three years old – a mere infant in it’s-sort-of-like-a-fringe years
