IndyFringe by the numbers

According to the powers that be at IndyFringe, attendance for the 10-day event (which wrapped up on Sunday) was just about the same as last year (11,214).

The highest-grossing show was a home-grown one: ShadowApe Theatre Company's "Not a Peep," which opened with a strong audience already familiar with the group and grew thanks to positive word of mouth.

It was the first time ShadowApe produced a show for IndyFringe. Here's hoping the creative company will become a regular feature.
Also of interest: Three of the more popular Fringe performers from out of town are seriously looking into relocating to Indianapolis.
Thoughts on that show--and the Fringe--here

    I loved what you wrote about the Fringe, Lou, and I loved writing about it myself for the fourth year in a row. It was also a great way for me to get back into blogging about theatre after taking a summer sabbatical.

    Phil Van Hest (aka Phil the Void) said at the end of his opening night performance that he was thinking of moving from L.A. to Indianapolis and running for mayor. I laughed out loud then, but maybe he is one of three out-of-towners you mentioned that are seriously thinking of moving here?

    I assume that his girlfriend would move here, too, so that makes two.

    Now I am consumed with curiousity about who the third one is. Even if you never tell me, though, I would love to have ANY of this year's Fringe performers living here year-round.

  • PS - the mobile version!
    Oh! I would also like to give a huge, loving shout of "GOOD JOB!" to whoever designed the mobile version of the Indy Fringe schedule.

    It turned an already very enjoyable week into pure bliss.

      Thanks to everyone who supported the 2010 Festival! The mobile site as well as our web site was designed by VOLUNTEER Scott Wilson. We are lucky to have someone so creative and talented donate their time.

      The other 2 are the players in The Screw You Revue. They are coming back in January, along with A Brighter Shade Of Blue, for a "best of Fringe" week at the Indy Fringe Theatre.
