59E59 THEATERS Presents

EAST TO EDINBURGH 2013 - THEATER C
EAST TO EDINBURGH returns to 59E59 returns to 59E59 with shows in both Theater B and C - catch them here, before they cross the pond to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

The intention of EAST TO EDINBURGH at 59E59 Theaters is to mimic as closely as possible the conditions these US companies will encounter at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. As in Edinburgh, the programming is not curated, the technical elements are kept to minimum, and all shows begin promptly at their advertised time!
