Meet our New Publicity Manager

My name is Brittany Gash and I am in love with words. (I am also the new Publicity Manager for Hollywood Fringe Festival, but I’ll get to that later.) I’m in love with how we use words to describe things and communicate our feelings. I’m also intrigued by the many ways in which we choose to ditch our words and use other methods to communicate. Some people dance, paint, act, or make music. My art is communication. I love the magic of composing a sentence or phrase that will inspire, inform, motivate...

The Interns: Looking Back on HFF16

The Hollywood Fringe Festival would not be able to operate every year were it not for an army of volunteers and a few hard-working interns. We recently reached out to this year’s interns and asked them to write a few short paragraphs about their experience. Here’s what they had to say.From Ben Fang, the HFF16 Volunteer Intern:Throughout the three weeks that I volunteered for Hollywood Fringe, I was often met with surprise when I described my background and interests. “So, what is a musician with al...

Meet the New Fringe Bar Manager, Bradley Pierce!

Q: How did you get involved with the Hollywood Fringe Festival and what made you want to stick around?A: I first experienced the awesomeness of Fringe during the Opening Night Party of 2016. I was attending as a guest of the incompararable Bella Luna (Fringe’s Cabaret Director). We had arrived early and through some sort of cosmic alignment I was able to get behind the bar and help out. I found a groove quickly and really enjoyed my time there that night. It turned out to be the first night of several that I w...

Cabaret Director Bella Luna Takes on HFF17 Social Media Manager Position

Hellloooo Fringe! My name is Bella Luna and, despite being quite strange, I am no stranger to Hollywood Fringe. In fact, I’ve been involved with the festival since 2011. I started off simply stage managing a production that was going to be performing in a festival. I had no idea what Hollywood Fringe was! Through some well placed karmic connections, I ended up performing at the Opening Night party, helping out with a Fringe-registered magic show, and assisting the Fringe Cabaret Director, Jon Armstrong, schedu...

Volunteer Director Stina Pederson Takes on Fringe Central Front of House Duties

My husband, Brendan, and I moved to L.A. in the fall of 2010 to pursue our dreams of acting and writing, respectively. We first heard of Fringe midway through June the following year. We were dead broke, like so many Los Angeles transplants following their dreams, and I remember thinking, “Hey, I should see if they have any volunteer positions, maybe I could see some shows for free that way.”  June passed and I never got around to it, but I vowed I wouldn’t miss Fringe in 2012. I signed up to ...

Meet Fringe Central Scenic Designer David Offner

For the past three years, I have taken an almost empty space, and turned it into a place for socializing, drinking, networking and anything in between. Hi, I am David Offner, and I am the scenic designer for Fringe Central. My first design in the Hollywood Fringe Festival, was back in 2013. I was working with my longtime collaborator and very dear friend, Brandon Baruch, on a Fringe show that he had written. Then in 2015, Dave McKeever had asked me about designing a “bar space” at the Dragonfly. Thi...

Meet Fringe Central Lighting Designer Brandon Baruch

Hiya, I’m Brandon Baruch. I’m a playwright and a lighting designer specializing in experimental theater, opera, and dance. I’m also the guy who designed the lights for Fringe Central. My first foray into Fringe was in 2010, when I co-wrote and directed a silly piece called Deicide, a Sorta Musical. I became hooked by the HFF bug, and I’ve been involved ever since. I became Staff Lighting Designer in 2012 when I helped mount some colorful lighting in Fringe Central, before it became ...
