Went to see Lonely Bear tonight at the Ottawa Fringe Festival. It was really great, and I don't say that just because a friend and frequent filmmaking collaborator worked on the stage production. It had everything you would want from an off-off-Broadway calibre production. There was bloodshed, plane crashes, double crossing espionage, and a teddy bear that later evolved into a guy in a bear suit. It was weird, shocking, funny and quite inventive in it's use of a small stage presentation and no-budgetness. Go check out stuff at the Fringe Fest, or if not in Ottawa go see Fringe in your own town. If your city does not showcase a Fringe Fest, you should consider moving to a more exciting locale.
