Buddy...with song!

Updated: The show must go on, and Buddy Cianci, The Musical, whose performances were cancelled due to the blackout, will have two newly rescheduled performances: Tuesday, August 19th @ 7:00pm, and Thursday, August 21st @ 7:15pm11:30pm (believe us, the Thursday show is at 11:30pm, JVG frantically emailed us, damning Fringe and his server, but Gothamist is more than happy to offer minute-to-minute Buddy scheduling issues, because we're getting first-look rights for the made-for-TV movie). Sales are only at the door, 15 minutes before showtime, so Gothamist recommends you go a bit earlier to ensure you'll get a ticket. Buddy writer-producer Jonathan Van Gieson tells us, "I'll be at the door both days, so feel free to come and scream at me about how unfair it all is. Also, bring me chocolate."

JVG has the details of the Fringe Festival's show make-up procedure. And the Times looked at the allure and muse of Buddy Cianci, the corrupt but lovable Providence mayor, last week.
