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.

    1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

    2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

    3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

    4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

    5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
