Direct from the Boulder International Fringe Festival: The preliminary 2012 lineup

The Boulder International Fringe Festival has announced its preliminary 2012 artist lineup, which includes such past fringe faves as TinHouse Experimental Dance, Gemma Wilcox Productions, Square Product Theatre and Band of Toughs, as well as a wide range of on-the-edge artists hailing from New York to San Francisco and points in between.

These names are culled from early-bird applications and lottery winners, so the roster could be retooled before the fest opens on August 15; in fact, waiting-list applications are still available to performing artists still hankering for a chance at the Fringe stage.
