Producing 14 shows across six venues, plus doing PR for three additional shows, meant a very busy July/August for us indeed. But more importantly, it meant meeting and working with an army of amazing artists and arts industry people to deliver an exciting programme of world-class shows. And in the end, the fun totally outweighed the fatigue and stress. We may still be knackered and full of the Fringe flu right now, but we're also feeling pretty darn proud of our first, full Edinburgh Fringe season.
We're beyond excited as our first ever Edinburgh Fringe programme just arrived from the printers! Starring Courtney Act: The Girl from Oz; Roddy Bottum's Sasquatch; Joe's NYC Bar; Hans: Mein Camp; Michael Griffiths' Sweet Dreams; Carla Lippis: Cast A Dark Shadow; Danny Condon's Songs from the Black Sheep; Peter Michael Marino's Show Up; Mindy Raf: Keeping My Kidneys; Romy Nordlinger's Places; Tomas Ford: Crap Music Rave Party/Craptacular; Modern Robot's Alive: Music for Night of the Living Dead; and Michelle Shocked: Truth vs Reality.
With the recent sad news that George A. Romero has passed away, Modern Robot’s original take on his zombie classic at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe is a chance to celebrate his iconic legacy. ALIVE: Music for Night of the Living Dead sees edited screenings of Romero’s bleak cult horror movie treated to tense and disturbing live scoring at ZOO Venues this August.
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.
If you've had the audio-visually orgasmic pleasure of catching a Carla Lippis gig in the past, then you know audiences are in for an epic treat when she premieres her new show, Cast A Dark Shadow, in London later this month. In the lead-up to her full run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August, Carla and her band are performing two exclusive previews at Crazy Coq’s Live @ Zédel in Soho, and we can't wait to wrap our ears around her silky smooth and scary powerful retro-electric sound!
