Supporting creative work by women
FringeNYC enters its fifth day, and the festival is as popular as ever. Run by the tireless, passionate Elena K. Holy, FringeNYC celebrates diversity, dynamism, and the can-do spirit.
Over the weekend, I saw Laura Brienza’s War Zones, which recently took the Capital Fringe by storm. The play follows one woman and the men in her life as they cope with damages of time, love, and self esteem on the body. It’s an assured effort by a young, up-and-coming playwright.

Michael Sommer of New Jersey Newroom covers FringeNYC shows with New Jersey pedigrees, and interviews a number of female playwrights, including Jen Browne, Debbie Slevin and Claire Porter.
The festival continues through August 29th, and there are plenty of shows written, directed and/or designed by women. To view a full range of FringeNYC shows, visit here.
