The Capital Fringe Festival will continue this week and through July 28. The festival features live performances and shows by local actors whose work is promoted by Capital Fringe, a local performing arts non-profit organization.
The festival features a number of performances that address gay themes. “La Voce to Me,” a gay recreation of “The Little Mermaid” by Jeremy Pace, will be performed on Sunday at 5:15 at the Goethe Institut (812 7th St., N.W.).
Also on Sunday is “Pitchin’ the Tent: Tia Nina Live at Baldacchino,” showcasing the gender-bending feminist rock band Tia Nina. All of the group’s songs are original, complemented with gritty dancing. The performance is at 3 p.m. at Fort Fringe (607 New York Ave., N.W.).
“Songs From an Unmade Bed” is a musical theater and opera performance directed by Josh Redford that reveals a gay man’s experiences living in New York. The show is at 2:45 p.m. at Fort Fringe on Sunday (607 New York Ave., N.W.).
