THE FARTISTE sounds like the ultimate Fringe show. It has a catchy title, a loopy plot and it’s a musical. According to the press release, it’s the “strange but very true, story of Joseph Pujol…an ordinary French baker with a case of ambition and an unusual and ass-tonishing talent—the ability to manipulate a limitless supply of odorless gas from his rectum - fashioning an amazing assortment of musical numbers, imitations, and ass- tounding tricks." It’s directed by John Gould Rubin, a member of LAByrinth Theater Company, for which he created and directed Dreaming in Tongues; and directed the premieres of Stopless; The Trail of Her Inner Thigh by Erin Cressida Wilson – all of which were excellent productions.
