This preview was contributed by Asheville Fringe Arts Festival. A version of this article originally ran in 1.9.22; this article reflects updates to March's live events.

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival is back! For the first time there will be a second round of Fringe, two months after the first - it's the LIVE edition! We know you are ready for live performances, and so are we.  

In a miracle of scheduling alignment, 25 of the original January shows, cancelled due to covid concerns, are able to join us March 24-27! Including popular Fringe regulars like Alli Marshall with The Top Ten Super Powers of All Time; Phillipe Coquet's Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off To Work I Go; and ACDT with their popular Dance Showcase; along with fresh new artists like Abby Palen's Moving the Mountain, Skysail Theater's Tithonia: A Space Opera* and 50 Shades of Gay by Ike Avelli.

*Read our preview of Tithonia plus an exclusive interview with the creators here.

Puppetry, theater, butoh and belly dance, comedy, storytelling, and things that defy genre - the full schedule with live ticket links was launched today at AshevilleFringe.org 

We're so happy that our tried and true venues - the Bebe, Magnetic, La Zoom bus and Static Age were able to fit us in at these later dates. There's an exciting new  venue too, the Story Parlor, as well as two new Random Act of Fringe locations: the Center for Connection + Collaboration, and Rusty Lotus Dojo. 

And so much more! See the new, full schedule online and learn more about the festival and its COVID-19 protocols.
