What to see Wednesday night at the Fringe Festival:
5 p.m.: Alchemist. Philly-theater mainstays Mary Tuomanen (Marcus/Emma) and Chris Davis (Bortle 8) team up for a powerhouse show about transformation – including transforming Northern Liberties' One Shot Coffee into a theater. Not to be missed. One Shot Coffee, 217 W. George St. 50 minutes. $15. Performances at 5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday; 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, and Sept. 23-24.
8 p.m.: Home. Geoff Sobelle, one of the international stars spawned by Fringe and Pig Iron and Philly theater, is back with an event that follows the progression of a house and home, from its construction, to the lives within it, to its dismantling. Designer Steven Dufala delivers a brilliant set, and a talent-packed cast gives it life. Prince Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. 90 minutes. $35 general; $24.50 members; $15 students and 25-and-under. Performances at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday.
