Despite this year’s lower nudity quotient, the Fringe remains largely an adult affair. There are only a few truly family-oriented shows, and if you have to pick one above the rest, go with LEO, where the title character seems to defy gravity and other laws of physics in mind-bending ways. The surreal shenanigans and optical illusions are out of this world. It’s a big ol’ hoot, not to mention a multiple prizewinner at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Kids of all ages can’t help but be impressed by a performance that will have you thinking “Wow, that is so cool,” while also wondering “How the heck did he do that?”
Through Sept. 22, $20-$29, Arts Bank at University of the Arts, 601 S. Broad St., 215-413-1318, fringearts.com.
