Around The Fringe In 20 Plays!

July 13, 2012

Exciting news, fellow readers! 😛

This year, The New York City Fringe Festival has given me a press pass for the entire 16 day festival to review any show I’d like.  How did I manage to get my hands on such a coveted, exclusive, exciting thing?

I asked.

Yep.  That’s pretty much all I did.  I originally contacted the Fringe to see if I could get access to the email addresses of the producers/directors of this year’s productions and what I got was a great little surprise from a nice man named Ron.

Hence, “Around The Fringe in 20 Plays!”

_____________________________

THE PLAN:
I will cram in twenty select plays to review and feature on my new website, noredlipstick.com while simultaneously being in rehearsal for FullStop Collective’s Fringe show AND fulfilling my day job shifts and duties.

CAN SHE DO IT?:
It’s summer, folks.  I’m in the mood to run around!
So the answer is YE –  uhh, I actually don’t know.
But I might as well try!

WHAT THIS HAS TAUGHT ME:
1. As Dallas Travers has inspired me to believe:
“Don’t get it perfect.  Get it going.”

I had a thought, but I didn’t even know it was going to turn into this until I started taking action.  The results of my actions helped shape “Around The Fringe In 20 Days” into what it’s quickly (and I mean quickly!) becoming.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask for things.

I was proud of myself for taking action when I contacted the Fringe.  I didn’t even get what I wanted! (a list of emails) LOL.  But I got something that certainly put a new, much more exciting spin on things.  I feel like I’ve got the key to Pandora’s box.  Woot woot.  What’s she gonna do with it?!

___________________________

Get an idea.
Take action.
Make it happen.

_____________________________

Perfectionism was paralyzing me.  “Around The Fringe in 20 Plays” only became possible when I decided I’d be open to mistake making and the possibility of rejection.

Go figure!

Follow me on my journey “Around the Fringe in 20 Plays!”

Onwards and Upwards,
