THINK OF THE INAUGURAL Capital Fringe Festival as the theatrical equivalent of the Bargain Basement at Filene's. On any given night, an exquisitely tailored, well-designed play might be scheduled alongside a cut-rate piece of questionable taste.
Both performances will be cheap. And the hunt for a spectacular find is part of the thrill.
