Fringe Encore Series (Darren Lee Cole, artistic director) was created as a learning center and stepping stone for the talented and amazing productions that are a part of The New York International Fringe Festival every August in New York City. Now having expanded to include the largest Fringe Festivals in the world including The Encore Series has achieved global reach. Each fall, Fringe Encore Series presents the “best of” productions from each festival and allows these worthy shows a chance to perform in New York City at the historic SoHo Playhouse. Now the top emerging artists, writers and producers have a platform to show their work in one of the world's theatre capitals! In addition one of these special productions is named OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION OF THE YEAR. The winner receives a full Off Broadway run in New York City.
This year's festivals to be judged are: ADELAIDE, LIMERICK, BRIGHTON, ORLANDO, HOLLYWOOD, TORONTO, NEW YORK and EDINBURGH
If your show is entered in one of the above festivals for 2018 and you would like your show to be considered for the series please send an invite to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include festival, dates of performance, cast size and any union affiliations. See you at the Playhouse this fall!
