Every year in September we are used to the Fringe Festival bringing us edgy, out-of-the-box presentations that push the boundaries of their genres. This year we’re being presented with something even more different. We may be seeing the birth of an entirely new genre.

Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will perform her new show, “Story Songs,” at the Rrazz Room at the Prince Sept. 18. The cabaret act includes new songs from composers including Jason Robert Brown, Stephen Schwartz and Joe Iconis, as well as a cover of Radiohead’s “High and Dry.”

Out singer/songwriter Tom Goss will perform his hit “Bears,” along with tunes from his new album, “What Doesn’t Break,” when he headlines the Rehoboth Beach Bear Weekend Sept. 17. In addition to his current tour and album, Goss just released a new video, “Son of a Preacher Man,” and appears as a singer in the new DVD “Confessions.”

“Little Men,” from gay filmmaker Ira Sachs, is another absorbing duet — after the filmmaker’s “Keep the Lights On” and “Love Is Strange” — that follows two men in New York City. The film opens Sept. 2 at the Ritz at the Bourse.

Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are back and on the big screen!

Yes, “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” reunites the best friends for more madcap adventures. In the film, which opens July 22 at Ritz Theatres, Edina is looking to goose her PR clientele after her book deal with Random Penguin fizzles. She targets a party Patsy’s magazine is hosting for famed fashion designer Huki Miki (Janette Tough).
