Best of Fringe allows selected shows to extend their production from the Hollywood Fringe. Producing Venues will select shows based on Artistic Merit, Commercial Viability and Development Potential.

Shows will begin the weekend immediately following the Hollywood Fringe 2012 with the Best of International Week running June 28 – July 1. “The Best of“ will run July 6 -29 with have a mixture of one off and short runs, as well as a highlighted show(s) for a possible longer extension. Then from August 2 – 26, Best of Solo will celebrate the wide range of the solo show.

Past winners of Best of Fringe have gone on to have successful fringe runs in other cities including The Next Best Thing (Nominated for a LA Weekly Award), as well as independent commercial successes like Pulp Shakespeare, currently running and up for two LA Weekly awards. The hope is to bring producers and productions together to develop, highlight and take those productions to the next level.

Executive Producer and Best of Fringe Director Matthew Quinn is excited to be back for the third year, this time as an official Staff member of the Hollywood Fringe. With this new connection the event will have better communication and efficiency to cover more shows and allow for the quicker announcement time of the Best of events.

Registration/Application information for Best of Fringe is posted after the key registration period of the festival.

Schedule will be released during the Hollywood Fringe 2012 Awards Ceremony on June 24.
