The Fringe adventure
by Jean-François Plante-Tan
To tell you the truth, my original plan was to write in English in hopes of working my way towards a Broadway-type musical theatre production. We all have dreams right? But here is what actually happened. Early-bird registration means that the first eight English plays and the first eight French plays are automatically accepted first. The others had to wait for lottery night. With my waiting-in-line buddies, we calculated that I was the 12th English play but only the 7th French play. What did this mean? I had found what I was looking for – a spot at the Fringe – but it had to be in French.
Here I am today, at the 32nd Edmonton International Fringe Festival – the largest one in Canada and the second biggest one in the World. And with what? My first musical!
La cravate bleue is presently at the Edmonton Fringe and continues on to the Victoria and Vancouver Fringes
