Were you at the Hollywood Fringe? Did you just happen to think to yourself “Man. I wish we had just one more month” ? Well, we wont get a month, it’s over and we’ve got to deal. That being said, we do have quite a few hold out shows from the Fringe with extra runs. I’ve compiled a list of some of those extensions that I think might be worth your time. For all of the the other extended shows you can find more info @ http://www.hollywoodfringe.org/discover
Thug Tunnel – Musical
In the not-so-distant-future, greed, pollution, and The Ancient Fire of Death and Despair have made Earth’s surface uninhabitable, forcing the human race to survive underground in a criminal society known as THUG TUNNEL. But subsisting on rations of rat scraps isn’t the worst part of living in a sewer. A pair of tyrants, Breakin’ Necks Becky (Nikki Muller) and Stabby Rick (Dave Reynolds) have taken over an isolated community below The Surface. No one dares to defy the violent rulers until a young Tunnelborn named Petunia (Kat Primeau) and her lovesick sidekick Panther (Chris Bramante) decide to make a break for the world above. An old Tunnel sage named Trash (Miles Crosman) and the phosphorescent Yogurt Stew (Molly Dworsky) must aid them as Petunia and Panther journey through the Double Darkness, into the Maze of Infinite Confusion, and past the Great Grate to see if life on Earth’s surface is possible once again.

I didn’t actually see Thug Tunnel so I can’t guarantee anything for sure. But I’ve read some of their other reviews and after that slew of positivity I would say it’s a safely calculated risk.
