15th Annual NYC Fringe Fest Lands on the LES

The 15th Annual New York International Fringe Festival is under way and has happily taken over many Lower East Side venues for the next two weeks.  The festival touts more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues. From edgy solo shows to avant-garde musicals to fun performances for the kids, there’s something to be found for everyone.

We are glad to see programming back at the Clemente Soto Velez Center, utilizing four of their theater spaces  – Teatro SEA, Teatro LATEA, CSV Flamboyan and the CSV Kabayitos. Other LES venues include Dixon Place, The Living Theater and the Bowery Poetry Club.

The NYC Fringe Guide offers some suggestions on what to see and Theater Mania is posting review roundups to help find the festival highlights. For a complete listing of all the shows, visit the Fringe NYC website here.

The festival runs through August 28th, 2011. Tickets are $15 advance, $18 door.
