FringeNYC -- Popular Shows

The overriding goal of our "gavel-to-gavel" FringeNYC coverage on nytheatre.com is to help audience members find the shows they'll want to see from among the more than 200 offerings available. Our previews and our reviews provide lots of great information about the shows, and you should check them out (revisit the reviews page frequently throughout the festival, as new reviews are posted every single day).

But sometimes it's interesting to find out what others are interested in -- which shows are most popular, in other words. Now, I don't ever advocate following the pack -- the FringeNYC Festival is the time to stretch and discover work you wouldn't otherwise see. But it never hurts to know what the pack is up to...

So, in that spirit, today I want to share with you the top ten most popular shows at this year's New York International Fringe Festival so far, as measured by most visits to the nytheatre.com preview page.

(Drum roll please...)
  1. Muffin Man
  2. I Will Follow
  3. Willy Nilly
  4. Pie-Face! The Adventures of Anita Bryant
  5. Look After You
  6. Shelf Life
  7. Notes on the Land of Earthquake and Fire
  8. Candide Americana
  9. Viral
  10. The Office and the Metal Blob

I'll be posting the most-read reviews of FringeNYC shows starting on Monday. Happy Fringe-ing!
