Important Information:

1. REMEMBER:  NO LATE SEATING at the Fringe, so do schedule plenty of time to get to our show or any other show you're planning to attend!  We're right downtown, so parking too is hard except on Sundays.  Metro is super close.

2. PLEASE BRING CASH to Caos on F Street, 923 F St., NW, (or most other Fringe venues), as many venues are NOT SET UP TO ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS!  Of course, you can always purchase tickets beforehand online and the venue will have your reservations and tickets waiting for you at the venue.

    Jeez, Michael, I never noticed how much you look like Whitman--no wonder you channel him so well ;-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
