Come see Lee Weaver's "The Secret - The Spanish Inquisition in Old St. Augustine" -brilliant solo show about a Finder for The Spanish Monarchy and The Holy Church (read Inquisition) who crossed with Menendez in 1565, and discovered Maranos (Jews!) in the New World. A moral  quandry; Love and hate; life and death, bigotry, the rack, survival. At Fringe Festival. For tickets see this link:

So true! Most Fringe shows are garbage. Why do they even bother with it? Plus I heard that last year they kept all of a show's box office money because of some minor violation about something. There's the spirit!!!
