SALAMANDER STARTS OVER Extends Run for FringeNYC Encore Series, Now thru 9/28

Salamander Starts Over, winner of the Best Solo Show at FringeNYC, has been extended to the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival's Encore Series. Salamander Starts Over, played to sold out houses during the August run and received rave reviews. Performances begin tonight, September 7th at The SoHo Playhouse.

The words every teenage punk dreads: ALL-BOYS CATHOLIC SCHOOL. But this isn't your average preparatory education. Eccentric teachers. Militant coaches. Dance-fighting students. Add these with the love of a Cuban mother and see how Salamander Starts Over.

All performances take place at The SoHo Playhouse, downstairs in The Huron Club, 15 Vandam between Varick Street and Sixth Avenue. (Subway: C or E to Spring, exit via Vandam St. near center of platform.)

Tickets are $18.00 and available HERE.
