Though our city’s annual FringeNYC will soon turn 14, it shows relatively few signs of adolescent angst: no slammed doors, no talkback at the dinner table, only a smidgen of inappropriate eye makeup. But expect plenty of raging hormones when this celebration of low budgets and high ambitions begins August 13. Eighteen theaters will host more than 200 dramas, comedies, solo shows, puppet plays, and unclassifiable oddities, hailing from as near as next door and as far-flung as Singapore and the Netherlands. This year’s selections run the gamut from “A” (AK-47 Sing-Along) to “Z” (well, “W,” anyway, Wanton Displays of Affection). Get your teenage kicks through August 29.
