Heading into closing weekend of the Minnesota Fringe with our penultimate performance today at 1 PM. Pre-sales are closed, and we’re very near sold-out, so if you’re coming today—hooray!—AND—get there early and get in the ticket-buying line.
Also TONIGHT—the Audience Picks are announced, and that’s us, if we have sold the most seats at our venue! We’ve sold out every show except our opening, and I think we’re contenders. The Audience Pick shows get an additional performance tomorrow night at 8:30 pm. If you can’t make it today at 1 or tomorrow at 4, you can go here, roll the dice, make a reservation for the 8:30 show, and hope it’s us!

Our show page tells the tale.  Last night’s show was sold-out (a wonderful, wonderful house), and our remaining two this weekend are official High Sell-Out Risks.  Zebra Shirt and the MN Fringe are crushing on each other pretty hard.
Some more nice audience reviews are in at the bottom of our show page (“Emotionally draining” is a good thing, I swear!); plus, Ed Hyuck of CityPages takes our "tremendous, powerful wallop" on the chin and lives to tell about it, and Sophie Kerman of Aisle Say Twin Cities says "Trumbull’s deadpan humor always comes at just the right moment…savor this one."
Savoring sounds good to me.  Got some time off in Minnetonka before I’m back to Minneapolis to see shows and do shows.  Going to enjoy this for a bit.

Last night I saw The Zebra Shirt of Lonely Children. I really liked his acting immensely; he was telling the story of his father’s death and there was an economy to the language – almost Hemingway-like. In some ways it felt like a laundry list with these surprise emotionally cathartic moments…the way in which he told the story reflected what it was like for him to discover these emotions for the first time. —Paul Strickland, “Ain’t True and Uncle False”

Ain’t True and Uncle False at the Fringe

There’s our crowd from Saturday night!  107 butts in seats, making for an official sold-out show!  A standing O and some new raves on our MN Fringe show page followed, plus some kind words from one of our brother artists at the Fringe on Minnnesota Public Radio’s daily coverage.

We’re back!  THE ZEBRA SHIRT OF LONELY CHILDREN has been accepted into the 2013 Minnesota Fringe Festival, Aug. 1-11, and we need your help to bring this show to the Twin Cities!  Click on our Indiegogo campaign below to make a donation, and thank you!  See you in Minnesota!


It Ain’t Goodbye!
Zebra Shirt has much more life ahead!
We are now published on Indie Theater Now, and you can buy the play to read for $1.29.  Not too shabby!
We are also hunting for a home for an extended run!  If you are an interested producer/investor, please contact us!
We’ll also announce other opportunities to catch the show’s star and staff in all kinds of projects around the city!  
Our director Matthew Freeman, of course, has his Zebra Shirt-referenced blog and its one of the best in the business for theatre, playwriting, politics, and the occasional picture of his cat.  
Matthew Trumbull will soon have a Tumblr all his own, and the show staff are all crazy Tweeters.
