Sorting Out The Hot Gay Action At The New York International Fringe Festival

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9Next »

For the past 15 years, The New York International Fringe Festival has been bringing weird and wonderful productions to the Big Apple. The Fringe is one of the largest theater festivals in North America, with more than 200 performances mounted at some 20 venues around the city.  Known for outrageous high-concept/low-budget shows like the current Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin’ Rock Opera, FringeNYC is a great opportunity to catch exciting gay-themed and campy works.

This year’s series kicked off August 12 and runs through Sunday, August 28. After the jump are just some of the queer plays at this year’s FringeNYC, including Alex DeFazio’s 2 Burn (at right). For a full rundown of gay-related works—including Jeffrey Dahmer Live, Two Alone;Too Together and Parker & Dizzy’s Fabulous Journey to the End of the Rainbow—go to the FringeNYC’s Slice-o-Matic page and select “LGBTQ” under the Cultural Cruise pull-down menu.

If you can’t get tickets to the remaining shows, audience faves are remounted in the Fringe Encore series September 9–26. But the festival is also often a proving ground for works that go on to bigger and better things—Urinetown and Dog Sees God both debuted at Fringe—so there‘s a good chance you’ll see them on the stage again elsewhere.

Have you seen one of these shows? Did we miss a great LGBT-themed Fringe production? Sing out, Louise, in the comments below.

      Please fix the italics tag. It’s odd seeing each comment italicized.
