The St. Lou Fringe Fest isn't until August, but that doesn't mean you have to go without your alternative/experimental theater til then. Five-Fifths: The Age of Glam
is a night of storytelling, spoken word and original theater that satisfies on all fringe-y levels. The main event is a single story told by five performing arts groups, each working in a different discipline. This year's cast includes the Black Rep, DJ Boogieman and Matthew Kerns, and the whole shebang is hosted by Sabine England and Loren D. A pop-up art show and gallery, Glitz and Gold, rounds out the evening with live painting by Vesna Delevska and original artwork by Nelson Perez, Thomas Park and Kari Pillow. Five-Fifths starts at 7 p.m. at Attitudes Nightclub (4100 Manchester Avenue; www.stlfringe.com
). Tickets are $20 to $250. Stick around after the show for a special free drag tribute to Cher.
