21 Awesome Things to Do this Weekend, March 5 - 8

Out of the Loop Fringe Festival opens at WaterTower Theatre this weekend. The annual fest up in Addison isn't afraid to take risks on new work from Dallas-based playwrights, like this year's Standing 8 Count by Van Quattro. The fest also brings in outside performers, like the return of Jenn Dodd, who had a packed run for her one-person character show at last year's Loop. They have dance, music, and art. And at 10 bucks a show, it's a cheap risk for the audience to take on the shows. Shows start Friday night (opening night has been cancelled due to weather) with performances nightly for 10 days.
