We are looking to work with top shows and hard working entertainment professionals. Being a participant of the Hollywood Fringe Festival (“HFF”) has its challenges, but it can be very rewarding. While you will most likely not make a profit and maybe even take a loss, the connections you make, press coverage and future opportunities are there. If you are willing to work harder than you ever have for a Fringe show, and if you are still interested after all being said, I’d like to talk with you about your fringe show.
I’m Matthew Quinn, the Executive Producer of Theater Asylum/Combined Artform. I have been a venue and producer every year of the HFF; this year was its 7th year. I’ve been a venue owner and independent producer in Los Angeles and San Francisco for over 20 years. Along with running 5 venues throughout Hollywood during the fringe festival (over 65 shows), we also produce:
We also co-produce at least one International show every year. Some co-productions include “How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse.” ((UK) - Best International and “WOMEN” (NYC) - Top of Fringe.
We started the Asylum (Inter)national House for out of town shows and will be back again in 2017 in the heart of theater row for the HFF. We will also continue our partnership with the San Diego Fringe Festival (“SD”) to coordinate shows doing both festivals. The HFF and SD festivals overlap at the end of June.
As producers, we understand the challenges out of town shows face and have started a billet and ambassador program to help offset your costs.
In addition, we offer support with venues, publicity and production. These services are provided at fair rates.
