Must be an attraction at the New York International Fringe Festival. The title is Common Knowledge, and the comedy, written and performed by Doug Budin and Randall Rapstine, will run Aug. 14-29 at The Next Stage, 312 W. 11th St.  The show—which serves to point out the "common knowledge" that links disparate lives—has been performed several times in Los Angeles, Martha’s Vineyard and in Provincetown, MA.  Budin’s television appearances include “Friends," “Frasier,” “What I Like About You” and “Charmed.” Rapstine, too, has acted on “Frasier,” as well as “Angel.”

Wanking Claw Productions, in association with Richard B. Warsk, present the piece.

All tickets are $15. For tickets visit www.FringeNYC.org or call (212) 279-4488.
