Four OTHER Shows You Should See At FringeNYC

Canon in D Minor

 

With 187 shows to sift through, the first few days of FringeNYC is pretty much a referral business. Here’s four entries we’re (ahem) particularly excited about:

Songs of Love: A Theatrical Mixtape: Described as a musical mash-up of (among other things) mothmen, pornography, decapitation, and bagel f__king, this project by Nat Cassidy features more than a few faces familiar to us, including performances by Tarantino Smith and Kristen Vaughan and lighting design by Kia Rogers. Produced by Tin Drum Productions Songs of Love promises elements of Once and Kids in the Hall. Sold.

Prophet in Pink: Many of us already view parts of Brooklyn with wonderment — some of those mustaches have to be enhanced by some sort of pixie (or, perhaps, Pixies?) dust. But playwright Nick Robideau has taken the fantastical elements of the borough to a new level with this love triangle, dubbed a “girl meets boy meets boy meets destiny” type story. No word on whether American Spirits will be given out at the door.

The List: We now have an answer to the frequent question posed to us about whether or not we produce French-Canadian work: Les Exportables, a new NYC troupe which hopes to bridge the gap between native English speakers and Native French speakers through an emerging generation of Montreal playwrights. Written by Jennifer Tremblay and translated by Shelley Tepperman, The List brings to life the chilling story of a woman struggling with isolation, motherhood, and the death of her only friend and neighbor. Starring Sofi Lambert.

Canon in D Minor: Another member of the strong Canadian contingent at FringeNYC this year, playwright Jessica Liadsky and director Rachel Slaven premiered Canon in D Minor at SummerWorks back in 2007. Described as a tender and poetic exploration of friendship, forgiveness, and the power of music to connect us, Jessica received raves from the Toronto press corps that year and we expect nothing less this year with a production team whose credentials include MTC and Stratford.
