FringeNYC Round-Up and ‘Suicide Math’ Review

The 2013 FringeNYC festival drew to a close on August 25th and upon its completion, my appreciation for indie theater artists reached epic heights. It takes major artistic mojo to perform a new or relatively unknown work before New York audiences in a venue you didn’t choose, stretch a low budget (most of which you probably crowdsourced) to the max and deal with minimal sets you are required to strike shortly after the show ends, often in haste if another production is starting in 15 minutes. Add to that the challenge of generating buzz and leveraging said buzz into ticket sales within a day or two of opening during the lazy, hazy August days of summer and you get the picture. Whether packing the house or suffering the effects of a painfully early or late time slot, earning a nomination and award or going home empty handed, every one of the approximately 2000 artists from 185 plays who participated in the Fringe deserves a hearty bravo.
