PictureDorian1w_NealUtterback

 

The 18th annual The New York International Fringe Festival, the largest multi-arts festival in North America, kicked off last weekend. This year’s festival offers programming from 205 of the world’s best emerging theatre troupes and dance companies in 18 venues throughout downtown Manhattan. Over 75,000 people are expected to check out performances through August 24. Performances in FringeNYC 2014 represent 13 countries (including South Africa, Italy, Japan, China, Mexico, Israel, Korea and Australia). Some of the gay-themed shows include Brendan Hunt’s Absolutely Filthy (Winner of Best Show at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe), Australia’s Joel Creasy in Rock God, Miguel Garcia’s Brown & Out, Joshua Young’s incarnation of Clive Barker’s History of the Devil, Kenneth Malloy’s new imagination of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Empty House, Coming: A Rock Musical of Biblical Proportions, Cory Conley’s Magic Kingdom, and Neil Utterback’s Oscar Wilde-inspired The Picture (of Dorian Gray). No Homo, written by Brandon Baruch and directed by Jessica Hanna is perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated productions this year, coming directly from a sold-out extended run in Hollywood. The festival is the brainchild of The Present Company, which continues to “curate” the shows produced each summer. Smash hits that have been picked up and transferred include Urinetown, 21 Dog Years, Silence! The Musical, Matt & Ben and Debbie Does Dallas.

      I’ve been attending NATIONAL THEATER LIVE, movie theater presentations of London theater for U.S. audiences. I wish something similar would happen with these works. It would broaden the audience, collect ticket fees, and present writers/actors/directors to large audiences. I love the photo of Gil Bar Sela: amazing physical shape in a totally absurd set-up.
