Quite a few theater and arts festivals commence in the next few weeks. You may want to save space on your calendars for intercontinental drama at Lincoln Center, new plays at SPF, and a panoply of queer performance at HOT! and Fresh Fruit. In the past years, I haven't spent much time at these--Lincoln Center tickets prove very hard to get and SPF playwrights tend to prefer that critics wait for more fully fledged productions (though I still regret missing Rob Handel's play last summer--I fainted on the way!). As for Hot! and Fresh Fruit I can't claim any reasonable excuse, it isn't as though I prefer cold or vegetables. Blame torpor.
Ice Factory's beginning as well, and that's a festival I do often attend and enjoy.
