FringeNYC 2012 Encore Series

Running September 7th-30th at Soho Playhouse & Players Theatre

Pulp ShakespeareIndependents5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Pulp Shakespeare, a delightful take-off on Pulp Fiction as written by the Bard; Independents, a superb musical from Yale;
and 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, a hilarious comedy that's my favorite FringeNYC 2012 show, are all part of the Encore Series


This year's FringeNYC festival ended on August 26th, but that's not the end of a number of its shows.


There were quite a few productions worthy of going on to commercial runs, and it's a sure bet at least some of them will.


And more immediately, 19 FringeNYC shows have been extended to run September 7th-30th, with the performances taking place at the West Village's The Soho Playhouse (upstairs mainstage), The Soho Playhouse's Huron Club (downstairs cozy theatre), and The Players Theatre.

Tickets for FringeNYC Encore shows are $18 each at the door.


Alternatively, you can purchase tickets online for $18 plus a $3.20 service charge via Web site, or by calling (866) 468-7619.


If you have a FringeNYC 2012 discount card for participating in the festival (e.g., as a volunteer or performer), it can be used for all Encore shows.
