The Maxamoo Podcast Reviews the 2016 NY International Fringe Festival

Lindsay, Jose and Liz sampled the 200 offerings at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival and we enjoyed it!

This year's festival played host to nearly 200 shows ranging in style from the weird and wacky one-person shows to sincere musicals and dramas. Fringe NYC ran from August 12-28, 2016 at 16 venues across lower Manhattan (and Central Park).

About MaxamooThe Maxamoo Podcast Reviews the 2016 NY International Fringe Festival

On Maxamoo's New York City Theater Podcast we cut through that chaos and just tell you: what's good, what's bad, and what we recommend.

We base our recommendations on the quality and characteristics of the production, not theater size. So the terms Broadway, Off Broadway, and Off Off Broadway (which are all technical terms describing the location and number of seats in a theater) are not important to us.

We strive to include diverse, interesting, and innovative productions, shows you're probably missing if you rely on mainstream publications like the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York, which cover only a tiny fraction of the arts, culture, and theater world.

The best way to stay up-to-date about New York City theater is to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes or Stitcher. Maxamoo covers New York City theater through our podcast programing, including roundtable discussions on Maxamoo's New York City Theater Podcast and artist interviews on the Playwrights & Performers Podcast.
