The New York City Fringe Festival is one of the biggest incubators for edgy, independent theater in the nation, and the birthplace for major shows like Dog Sees God, Charlie Victor Romeo and Broadway’s Urinetown. This year, the festival runs August 9-25 and Hunting Season hottie Marc Sinoway will be making his Fringe debut in the gay-themed drama Peninsula,
Set in Northern Michigan, the play sees a Brazilian immigrant named Tiago being pulled in different directions by all the people who want a piece of him, including the very seductive Nelson (Sinoway). And this time, Sinoway’s character might be even more sexually rapacious than Hunting Season‘s Tommy.
Above Marc talks about Peninsula, the festival and working with playwright Nathan Wright, just who happens to be his boyfriend. (Peninsula plays August 14-22 at the Robert Moss Theater at 440 Studios.)
