EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND (AP) - More than 20,000 performers and hundreds of thousands of tourists are descending on Scotland’s capital for the annual Edinburgh Fringe festival.
The three-week arts extravaganza offers almost 2,500 drama, comedy, dance and music shows in venues including theaters, pubs, a parking lot and a mid-air restaurant suspended above a city park.
This year’s big names include comedian Eddie Izzard, actor Alan Cumming and Michael Urie of “Ugly Betty.”
One show getting attention is “Lockerbie: Unfinished Business,” the true story of one man’s struggle to find the truth behind his daughter’s death in the 1988 airplane bombing.
The Fringe runs from Friday until Aug. 30.
