The NY International Fringe Festival

    All of New York (downtown Manhattan, at least) is a stage...

    I’ve been a volunteer at this wonderful event for the past few years. Last year I was a cameraman on the 10th Anniversary film they are making and got the chance to film lots of the plays and interview actors, directors and others. People come from all over the nation and around the world to put on their plays. Hundreds of them with a top price of $15, all down town (usually 14th St and below). It runs from August 10-26. Daytime (often starting around noon) and into the night.

    You will see performers promoting their plays (at least 5 performances of each) all around the city. Last year a group came in from Chicago by bus and would pull up while the dancers did their number on top of the bus. Nice trick in NY traffic.

    Get tickets online www.FRINGENYC.ORG or stop by at Fringe Central (80 Carmine St,, corner of Varick St.) Number for info is: 212-279-4488

    I'll be spending a lot of time at Fringe Central and at some of the shows helping out so look for me if you stop by. Or call me if you're in the area and need assistance with something: 917-992-3734.

    Better yet, if you have some time, volunteer for a 2 hour shift which gets you a free ticket.

    Of interest to teachers:

    Pedagogy: Can working for the Department of Education be worth more than just a $10 co-pay?

    A high school teacher from New Dorp HS, Nanci Richards, has written a play, Pedagogy.

    Tag line: Can working for the Department of Education be worth more than just a $10 co-pay?

    She is performing in it as well. A retired teacher, with a tremendous number of acting and directing credits to his name, Michael Tennenbaum, has directed.

    Info:
    The play is being performed at the Center for Architecture, 536 La Guardia Place in the Village.
