FringeNYC, now in its eighth year of presentation, has grown into the largest multi-arts festival in North America, presenting nearly 200 stagings of international emerging theatre troupes and dance companies. Among the more famous of Fringe alumni are the Off-Broadway stagings of Never Swim Alone, 21 Dog Years: Doing Time @ Amazon.com, Debbie Does Dallas and the upcoming The Joys of Sex. Matt & Ben, which began at the Fringe, continues its open-ended run at Off-Broadway's P.S. 122 and just began its Los Angeles run. The grande dame of all Fringe alum is the Tony Award-winning Urinetown which graduated to Off-Broadway, then Broadway and has since toured across the country.
Tickets to the Fringe Festival will be $15. For more information including volunteer details, call (212) 279-4488 or visit the website at www.FringeNYC.org.
