Now Magazine Blast from the Past

Read Glenn Sumi's article in Now Magazine about Now's first ever Fringe Festival cover, back in 1989. 

Thanks for this amazing trip down memory lane! In the middle of this most unprecedented festival, it's nice to be reminded of our roots and the power of the Fringe Movement.
Read Article in Now Magazine
“It’s no surprise shows like [Drowsy Chaperone and Kim’s Convenience] emerged from the Fringe rather than the country’s larger regional theatres. The risk is held by the artists rather than a corporate entity. You can fail. And because you can fail, you find out through the audience whether you’re good or not, whether your show will have legs.”
