A WondMERful Week!

Our first two performances of THE AVERAGE-SIZED MERMAID went swimmingly!

This entire experience has been so fin-tastic that it's difficult not to break out into a song-and-dance number (complete with Jamaican crustaceans on back-up), but we shall restrain ourselves and instead present some highlights of the run thus far:

  • Packed houses of wondMERful audience members who've laughed their tails off!
  • Stellar reviews! Molly Marinik of Theater is Easy writes that "The Average-Sized Mermaid is a wonderfully written adult fairy tale about keeping your dignity through the hardships of love," while Case Aiken of raves that "The Average-Sized Mermaid may well be one of my favorite FringeNYC shows to date," goes on to claim that "I was laughing hard enough that I worried I might upset the rest of the audience—only to realize they were right there with me," and finishes off with the thought that "It’s easily in my top three festival shows of all time and one of the best pieces I’ve seen in a long time." WOW! Thanks, Critics!
  • Three more chances to SEA the show (August 25 @ 6:00, August 26 @ 9:15, and August 27 @ 1:00)! Get your tickets today before they swim away!
We can't wait for the second half of our run! Please spread the word about the show, and be sure to vote for us as this year's FringeNYC Audience Favorite! Thank you to everyone who's come out to support us!
