This tip doesn't only apply to FringeNYC shows - it's generally a good idea (in life) to be punctual. However, it's even more important to arrive early/on time for every Fringe show because there is NO LATE SEATING AT FRINGENYC. That means that once they close the door, it won't open until the end of the performance. No matter how much you beg, plead or bribe, you will not be able to get in if you are even 30 seconds late. Since FringeNYC venues are located all over lower Manhattan, we highly suggest that you look at a map before heading to the theatre AND leave a few minutes earlier just to be safe.
