The San Francisco Fringe Festival is now in progress, with dozens of shows from around the Bay Area--and the world--hosted by the Exit Theaters, not far from the Cable Car turnaround and BART station at Powell and Market.  

Two Oakland performance artists begin a run of shows at the Fringe this week: Catherine Debon, with her show Alma Colorada, assisted by Jennifer Gordon and directed by Erica Blue, opening this Friday at 7, Exit Stage Left, 165 Eddy Street, and continuing on Wednesday the 14th (10:30 p. m.), Saturday the 17th (6 p. m.) and Sunday the 18th (2:30 p. m.) Genevieve Jessee will perform Girl in, but not of, the 'Hood, about returning to the Oakland she (and her family) grew up in, on September 10, 11, 14 and 17, different times and locations. Individual shows: $7-$10; festival passes: $40-$75. (415) 673-3847 (Festival hotline);
