Clearly in my excitement I'm becoming absent-minded.  The dates of the
New York International Fringe Festival are August 16 (yes, that's right,
tomorrow!) through August 27.  Performance times run from 3PM-midnight
on weekdays and noon-1AM on weekends.

Interesting. The first year of the festival featured a Canadian
production of As You Like It with only FOUR actors.

 Any possibility of including "Hamlet in the Mirror" by Dionis Bayer? It
was highly praised at  Edinburgh Fringe in 1998. Two actors. No props.
It has been touring and we did not know about New York.

Master and disciple fight. Old actor...young actor   TO BE OR NOT TO BE
IS THE LESSON...when the young actor has vampired the old one (in the
process they become  HAMLET and GERTRUDE) THEY KILL EACH OTHER.
Sexual...metaphor...British version can be sent. 1 hour 50 min  run.

Thanks to Julie Blumenthal for the update on the NYC Fringe Festival.
It's always great to hear about Fringe experiences. NYC's always sounds
good and exciting; I believe, though, they are still a juried festival,
which I wish were not so, all things being Fringe.

I have a friend who's headed to the San Francisco Fringe (September 7 -
17) and I checked out the list of performances. I was a bit surprised to
see nothing Shakespeare-related (what's a Fringe without a romp through
Bardsville at some speed or other?) but two Marlowe-related items:

"The Devil, Doctor Faustus, and Raymond the King of Hungary"
Comedic adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus" by Karl
Hanover; Random Acts Theatre Company, San Francisco

"The Tragical History of Dr. Faustus"
By Christopher Marlowe; Millennium X Theatre Co.; Hayward.

I hope I can persuade my friends to check out at least the former, which
sounds like fun. For those who want details: http://www.sffringe.org/
was my source of info.

Best wishes,
Ann Carrigan
