Previewing Fringe NYC 2016

We discuss what we’re looking forward to at the 20th annual New York International Fringe Festival. Jose, Jack, Liz and Lindsay describe the weird, sincere, and wacky one-person shows, musicals, and dramas that caught our attention among the nearly 200 shows at this year’s festival.
