Air-Conditioning Woes Cause FringeNYC to Relocate 8 Shows

News   Air-Conditioning Woes Cause FringeNYC to Relocate 8 Shows
 
Following a week of air-conditioning problems at The Lynn Redgrave Theater that caused a few performances to be canceled or performed with only work lights, FringeNYC has had to move eight of its shows to The SoHo Playhouse.

The following shows have been relocated and added performances:

The Crack in the Ceiling, a musical about repairing a cracked ceiling.
Creative License, a musical comedy about staging a new musical.
Dex! A Killer Musical, the unauthorized parody of "Dexter," the TV show.
Divine/Intervention, a bio drama that revolves around drag icon Divine.
Laugh Track, a behind-the-scenes look at creating a sitcom.
Reading Between the Lies, a 1940's noir farce.
Single Room Occupancy, a musical about a single guy and his tiny apartment.
Stalker: The Musical, about a boy obsessed with a girl.

The following shows are able to remain at the Lynn Redgrave Theater, with the use of portable air conditioning units:

Beware the Chupacabra!, a dark musical journey to seek a mythical beast.
The Report, a true story about the cover up of the deadliest civilian incident of World War II.
The Submarine Show, an imaginative physical comedy by an Emmy winner and former Cirque du Soleil performer.
Summer Blue, a soulful jazz-and-blues-infused performance piece.

"We tried our best to remedy the situation. Portable units were rented. Repairmen were dispatched. Parts were ordered, shipped and installed," said producing artistic director Elena K. Holy in a press statement. "But the problems are bigger than anyone could have imagined." All of the shows at both venues are being presented on their originally announced schedules, with some additional “make up” performances for canceled dates.
