New York, it’s time for some civil disobedience!

That’s right. Three of the amazing shows we’re producing at the Edinburgh Fringe this season are currently in the midst of (or about to launch into) previews at the 59e59 Theatres’ East to Edinburgh festival in New York City.

It’s a great opportunity to catch the shows before they hit the largest open access arts festival in the world for their European premieres, and support these brilliant artists. Get your tickets now, while there’s still time.

Mindy Raf: Keeping My Kidneys

‘LGBT Best Bet’ -Time Out, New York
‘Hit-listed’ -The Independent 
‘LGBTQ+ Shows to see’ – The List 

Throuple therapy, weed lube, and one life-altering text message. With an open mind, heart, and vagina, Mindy Raf weaves a fresh, tightly constructed narrative around modern love and relationships. She dismantles the conventional notion of the romantic comedy to hilarious effect, covering subjects like identity, sex, anxiety, the loss of a parent, coming out, polyamory, and bi/pan visibility in queer culture.

Romy Nordlinger: Places

‘Preview pick of the Fringe’ -The Scotsman
‘Best Off-Off-Broadway Shows’ -Time Out, New York 

Before Madonna, the world was Gaga for Nazimova. Alla Nazimova, that is; a 1920s silent movie vixen, and pioneering scissor sister. From Tsarist Russia to Broadway, Alla was once the highest paid silent movie star in Tinseltown, and the first female director/producer in Hollywood. Unapologetic about her bisexual decadence and lust for life, she defied the moral codes and gender roles of her time, which eventually forced her into obscurity.

Peter Michael Marino: Show Up

‘Hilarious’ -Time Out, New York
‘Best Off-Off-Broadway Shows’ -Time Out, New York 

Award-winning solo performer Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit, Late with Lance!) transforms real-life audience experiences into an improvised, comedic, vibrant life-story that’s daring and different each time. You get to control the content, set, and sound for this socially-anxious show that’s mostly about you.
