Beyond the Fringe at MuCCC


In response to the Rochester Fringe Festival, the folks involved with the Multi-use Community Cultural Center (142 Atlantic Ave.) have decided to put on their own series of events this week. The performances include theater productions, burlesque shows, music, and comedy, and while some of the presentations are new, others are a second chance to see a great performance you might have missed. The following is the line-up as of press time; more time slots are available. All shows begin promptly on the hour, and admission to each event is pay-what-you-will. See the most current line up and get more information by visiting, or sign up for a space by emailing
