Sort of Fringy Dud Alert! The One Festival

Dud Alert!

The One Festival

About The One

In 2007, yours truly was praying each and every morning that ”the one” would come into his life. Like a typical, single, fringe performer who had only experienced bad things on match.com, he turned to the secrets in “The Secret.” Each morning he would rise and say “The One is coming to me now! The One is coming to me now!” Well, a few months later he got a call from a theatre in New York (officially Off-Broadway) that he was officially invited to perform his solo show in “The One Festival,” which takes place at Teatro La Tea. How’s that for karma. Here he was praying for a girl and he gets a festival instead…. And a dud at that. No pay. No audience. But a chance to vie for the best show in the festival. He’s been afraid to post this festival entry on his resume ever since. On the plus side is a fully produced show in New York. If you have a good NYC theatre fan base it might be worth it, if you don’t cringe at the thought of performing with theatre side dishes.
