Houston ain’t big enough for TWO Fringe Festivals, and after three years of independent, overlapping fests produced separately by FrenetiCore and BooTown, FrenetiCore has emerged as the fringiest. BooTown will no longer produce its annual fringe festival (most recently held in May 2010), focusing its energy on other projects over the course of its season. With back-patting, handshaking, and expressions of mutual support, "both FrenetiCore and BooTown look forward to future years of The Houston Fringe Festival," says an emailed announcement from FrenetiCore director Rebecca French, the gracious winner; "we support each other, our respective endeavors, and we hope that the Houston arts community will continue the support it has shown to both companies in the future."
