Pick of the Fringe Awarded to New Musicals Inc

New Musicals Inc. has just been awarded the Pick of the Fringe award.

Pick of the Fringe is Combined Artform and Fringe Management's fourth year of offering this prestigious award. Modeled after Edenborough's similarly-named award, independent judges are sent to see productions across every genre, and then live highlights are presented from five different top Fringe shows. Historically, many of their choices have gone on to win major awards, including several Encore winners.

"We're thrilled and honored to be selected for Pick of the Fringe," says Elise Dewsberry, NMI's Artistic Director. "We've been honing our musicals for several months, and now that audiences are beginning to flock to see them, it's very rewarding to see the writers' work recognized."

NMI is producing four productions at the Hollywood Fringe this season, each comprised of three unique one-acts. Production C has been chosen as Pick of the Fringe. Production C features The Wedding Night, book by Jana Hejdukova, music by Stephen Coleman, lyrics by Keith Dale Gordon; Curses, book and lyrics by Harriet Belkin, music by Sandy Shanin, based on a short story by Norman Belkin; and Thanksgiving in Ithaca, book and lyrics by Mitch Glaser, music by Joe Blodgett.

Production C has already sold out one of its performances, and the remaining performances on June 14 at 9pm, June 15 at 7:30pm, June 18 at 3pm, and June 23 at 9pm are selling out quickly. Tickets may be purchased through the Hollywood Fringe website: www.hollywoodfringe.org/projects/4412.

The other productions, named Production A, Production B, and Production D feature nine other one-act musicals written specifically for the Fringe Festival. The one acts have a large range of topics and styles: from film noir parody, goofy nerd zombie role-playing, to R-rated naughtier fare about fetishes and video voyeurism.
