I’ll tell you who….just about every art and performance promoter in Cincinnati!
Here is the latest on the Fringe Festival. Rick Pender does an okay job of describing the Festival’s success. But why the hell does he feel the need to preface his summation with this notion of an “uptight” Cincinnati? I’ve never ever read this description of Cincinnati anywhere except here in the city.
No one outside of Cincinnati thinks the city is uptight, old, behind the times, etc. This is simply a poor writer’s strategy for finding a point to make.
To City Beat and all local arts and cultural editors, I challenge you to edit out this tired premise to all stories in the coming season. Force your writers to find something new to say.
By the way, Congratulations to another successful Fringe Festival
