Melissa Birch's War Queer Peace Solo debuts at the Boulder International Fringe Festival

For the better part of the past decade, Minneapolis-based performer Melissa Birch has focused on collaborations, but the veteran artist, singer and innovative cabaret entertainer is hardly a neophyte when it comes to solo performance. That's how she started her career, and at this year's Boulder International Fringe Festival, Birch will take her singular performance style out of the closet with War Queer Peace Solo, which addresses gender equality, queer identity, politics and public policy.
