My only strategy is to show up to Sunday Night Improv at Theatre Ste Catherine (8pm most Sundays, thuogh I haven't been in a while so I dunno for sure if it's still on the go) and see what flyers are around. This gets you theatre that's slightly more elaborate than a Fringe show (typically a larger cast), but still feels a bit Fringey, and is a bit hard to find out about otherwise. Legend of the Barbarian was great last year, for instance.
