Hollywood, known more for its movies and clubs than its pop-up theater and one-man showcases, is letting its Fringe show this month. The Hollywood Fringe, dedicated to promoting creative freedom through open-access art, will feature hundreds of shows in 20 venues, all located between Franklin and Melrose.

This year's festival will feature a variety of shows including cabaret, musicals, physical theater and comedy. The most common type of show, however, will be the solo show — as is usual at fringe festivals. Attendees can purchase tickets online, as well as download the festival's official app on Apple and Android devices to plan their viewing schedules. Various venues in Hollywood; shows continue through Sun., June 30; prices vary by show. hollywoodfringe.org.
