FringeNYC Shows That Sold
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
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 said...it's always nice to sell out a performance
Please also note that some of the hottest shows received extended
runs via the FringeNYC Encore Series in September; for details, please click
