Can you see it? LET’S MAKE A FRINGE FESTIVAL!

Many of you remember what it took to start a fringe festival in New York City all those years ago. And to be clear: we know that we’ll face even greater challenges in the future – as together we write this, the second part of FringeNYC’s story.

But we also know that what we’ve created together is more important now than it has ever been.

And given the collective strength, resources, wisdom, stewardship, and energy of our community of artists, alumni, audience, and volunteers; we believe that we’re uniquely positioned to have an extraordinary impact on the future of indie theatre in New York City.

Won’t you join us? Your support and participation are both vital components of our ambitious three year plan.
