FringeNYC Shows That Sold Out Performances

Tail! Spin!Independents5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Top political comedy Tail! Spin! sold out within a few days of tickets going on sale; Independents, a musical from Yale
that's one of the best of the festival, also sold out its entire run—playing at the fest's largest venue!; and
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, so far my favorite FringeNYC 2012 show, sold out 4 of its 5 performances in advance


Please note that selling out a single performance doesn't necessarily mean a show is hot, or vice versa.


For example, a production in a small venue might sell most of its tickets to family and friends for the debut performance but struggle for the rest of the festival.


At the same time, a show in a large venue might consistently sell lots of tickets but never fill all of its many seats. (Then again, it might; for a memorable example from FringeNYC 2009, please click here.)


For that matter, a production might not attract the type of folks who buy in advance and yet frequently sell out performances via at-the-door purchases. The latter aren't reported by FringeCentral and so can't be tracked here.


That's always nice to sell out a performance in advance.


Please also note that some of the hottest shows received extended runs via the FringeNYC Encore Series in September; for details, please click here.
