The Fringe Festival, the largest multi-arts festival in North America, which this years runs from August 12 to August 28th, presents nearly 200 shows each year by some of the world’s best emerging theater troupes and dance companies. In the 20 years since it began, the Fringe begat one hit Broadway musical, “Urinetown,” and many Off-Broadway transfers. Fringe alumni include now-famous actors Bradley Cooper, Mindy Kaling, and Michael Urie, and directors Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin), Alex Timbers (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Rocky), and Leigh Silverman (Violet.)
Go to the 2016 FringeNYC website to see the selection this year. (and see a photo essay of some of this year’s offerings below)
We’re giving away a pass.
To enter the contest, answer the question:
What was your most memorable Fringe experience?
- Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post (below the photo essay) because the winner will be chosen through Random.org based on the order of your reply, not its content.
But you must answer the question, complete with description and explanation, or your entry will not be approved for submission.
Update: Be Specific.. Gushing about the festival in general is not answering the question.
(Those who have had no Fringe experience, you can answer an alternate question: What NY Fringe show would you most like to have seen/would most like to see and why?)
- Please include your Twitter name and follow my Twitter feed at @NewYorkTheater so that I can send you a direct message. (If you don’t have a Twitter name, create one. It’s free.)
- This contest ends Friday, August 12, 2016 at midnight Eastern Time, and I will make the drawing no later than noon the next day. You must respond to my direct message on Twitter within 24 hours or I will choose another winner.
Obviously, you have to be in New York between August 12th and August 28th in order to see the shows.
Please remember to include your Twitter name.
