Fringe attendance slightly down

The Minnesota Fringe Festival reported essentially flat numbers for attendance at the 11-day performing arts festival. According to preliminary figures, 46,280 tickets were distributed, compared with 48,432 in 2011. The number of performances was down, due to show cancellations, so the average attendance per show was 56 -- the same as last year. In terms of total tickets distributed, the Fringe marks a second year of decline from the record of 50,222 in 2010. "Ash Land" by Transatlantic Love Affair was the best-attended production in the festival. The troupe used movement and dance theater to tell the story of a Dust Bowl farm threatened by foreclosure. "Class of 98," presented by Mainly Me Productions, was second in total tickets sold. GRAYDON ROYCE
