St. Lou Fringe 2014: The Hits

I have been a big supporter of the St. Lou Fringe festival since its inception three years ago.  This year I was out of town for most of the festival’s run (June 18-22), so I only got to six events.  Rather than writing a review of each one, I have decided put them into three groups: hits, misses, and flops (a.k.a. “I want my 45 minutes back”).  We’ll start with the hits.
