ALABAMA BOUND is was performed at the The New York International Fringe Festival, aka FringeNYC2013…the largest multi-arts festival in North America. This creative bash, both for participating artists and audiences, ran 16 days from August 9 through 25 and featured 200 shows with 1200 performances, 5,000 artists, at 20 different venues in Manhattan. More than 75,000 people attend the Fringe. Wow!! And it is definitely a labor of love: Its very small staff is supplemented by 2,500 volunteers who work very long hours to create an amazing Fringe community that we are so happy to be a part of. As Fringe Director Elena Holy says, “Fringe is a festival run on energy created by a community of artists, audience and volunteers.” Linda Nalbandian, Eileen Lewis and I are happy that ALABAMA BOUND was selected from more than 800 submissions. NEW YORK, HERE WE COME.
