The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC), the largest multi-arts festival in North America, will celebrate its 15th anniversary in August. Since the opening of the very first Festival in August of 1997, FringeNYC has never thrown a benefit. That is about to change as the Alumni Association of the New York International Festival presents The FringeBENEFITS Series. The FringeBENEFITS Series will offer a taste of 15 of the most beloved shows from the past 15 years of FringeNYC. Every Thursday for 15 weeks The Laurie Beechman Theatre will present a different performance, concert, or reading of a different work from one of the Festivals. Casting and guest hosts for the series will be announced on a show-by-show basis. Click here for a complete list of events.
