When one festival closes another one opens. Or overlaps. Or extends. My journey has taken me through many of the festivals in NYC (Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, West Village Musical Theatre Festival, NYMF, FringeNYC and now EstroGenius). I won’t lie. I am tired as I am sure the many many artists who have taken part in this festivals. As exciting as it is to be able to produce these shows and have an audience, reviewers, industry be in attendance, I have been wondering when do we take a breath and recharge.
Over the last few months, I have been writing for The Write Teacher(s) about theater beyond Broadway. This has allowed me to interview artists that have been in festivals as well as the mother of all festivals, Edinburgh Fringe. Overall, this sentiment is joy but there is a layer of frenzy that exhilarates as well as drains.
I would love to hear from you. What are your thoughts on festivals?
