Fresh Announcements from the Hollywood Fringe Festival (Just a Month Away)

on Tuesday, May. 14th

Two big piece of news out of our friends the Hollywood Fringe Festival this week. The first is the arrival of the Hollywood Fringe Festival mobile app in the Apple and Google Play stores.

In development for almost two years, the app aims to make the Fringe-going experience more manageable than ever. From their press release:

When you download the mobile app, you'll be able to purchase tickets on your phone to over two hundred festival productions, as well as browse shows by location, time or category. The app can help personalize the Fringe experience by allowing you to create a unique profile, manage a list of favorite shows and customize your schedule on-the-go.

The other is the official confirmation that the Fringe Central Station–the pop-up event space and bar that forms the social hub of the festival–will return to its location from last year, right next door to the Theatre Asylum.

For those who enjoyed last year's social scene this is about the best news ever.
