Varied Shows Consume the New York International Fringe Festival

Though at first glance the New York International Fringe Festival may seem like a hodge-podge of different artistic expressions, this variety is what makes this fun NYC film festival so unique.  Housed in several different theaters in downtown Manhattan, the performances at the Fringe Festival include music performances, plays, magic shows, stand-up comedy shows, and street performances. 

You should try a little of everything at the Fringe Festival to get the full effect of this one-of-a-kind event.  People from all over the world come to perform here.  From famous plays and actors to completely unknown performers, you'll get to see such variety at this event.
