Cut a rug with your favorite theatrical cut-ups at Dancing With the Fringe Stars

While we are all bedazzling our cooter-cutters for this year’s iteration of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, the festival itself is actually alive and kicking already – like, literally kicking. Borrowing rather obviously from the ABC series that allows Jennifer Grey’s new nose and Donny Osmond’s Branson ambitions to be paraded out before us in a sexy samba draped with rhinestones, Dancing With the Fringe Stars will bring the stars of Fringes past to the stage of Hard Rock Live for, well, some uncharacteristic dancing – in some cases, anyway; we’re looking at you, Michael Wanzie, and not so much at you, Baby Blue. The goal, naturally, is to get people salivating (and spending) for what has become Orlando’s biggest theater event. Dance it off! (With your pants off?)

8 p.m. Monday, March 2 | Hard Rock Live, 6050 Universal Blvd. | 407-351-5483 | | $20-$50
