The 33rd annual Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival — going with a 70s theme this year called "Fringed and Confused" — kicked off on Thursday night. 

There are 211 shows taking place in 53 venues over 11 days, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the choices.

Listen to Edmonton AM’s Mark Connolly chat with pop culture columnists Paul Matwychuck, who breaks down what’s going on at this year’s festival.
