NY International Fringe Festival

So...the Fringe is upon us, here in NYC. I've love to know which shows readers are involved with, looking forward to, or find noteworthy. The Festival begins on August 10th and ends on August 26th. There will be more that 200 shows (all of which will undoubtedly be reviewed by nytheatre.com).

I've mentioned a couple of shows (here and here) that I think readers might want to check out. What else, everyone, should we be paying attention to?

Susan Ferrara and I are starring in "The Commission" by Steven Fechter (acclaimed writer of "The Woodsman"). For details visit: www.dreamscapetheatre.org or zackcalhoon.blogspot.com.

It's an amazing play about the lives of four individuals and how their lives intersect in a war torn country.

I really believe this is a play that would really appeal to my fellow bloggers out there.

Here's the solution that lets you exercise your demoncratic rights! Check out nytheatre.com's FringeNYC Previews, where artists from more than 150 of the 188 shows in the festival have posted brief discussions about their shows. And listen to our three-part preview podcast series (http://www.nytheatrecast.com) which features excerpts/interviews from 24 of the shows in the festival. And yes, Matt, we are planning to review every show in the festival.

And there's JOHN GOLDFARB, PLEASE COME HOME, a new musical comedy I'm producing at NYU's Skirball Center. With a book by William Peter Blatty (yep, THE EXORCIST) and music/lyrics by Michael Garin, Robert Hipkens and Erik Frandsen (the team behind SONG OF SINGAPORE) it's about love, oil, the Middle East, spy planes and the Notre Dame football team. www.johngoldfarb.com

New York, NY. Incredio Productions, formerly Auntie Dee's house of Yum Yum Scones, proudly presents the First Annual Phuck the Phringe Phestival August 11 th, 18th, and 25th at Club Midway (25 Avenue B Between 2nd and 3rd Street).

All tickets are the low low super low cost of $10 and are available for purchase at www.clubmidway.com for the even lower discounted price of $8.

We are a festival committed to bring back the true spirit of avant-garde giving artist a free stage and all the profits from tickets to help them produce future plays and we don't know, pay rent. Charging theatre go-ers a mere $10 for 3 hours of touchingly profound plays, touchingly profane plays, riveting short films, and musical acts that will push the line of what is considered musical. Also, it doesn't hurt that the Club hosting the event has a fully stocked bar. So get ready to laugh, cry, vomit, and most importantly Phuck the Phringe.
