Upcoming Broadcasts

The UNFringed Festival and The Secret Theatre will be presenting AN INTOLERANT VAUDEVILLE, conceived by Sam Viverito, written by Wendy Biller, Chris Hawthorne and Sam Viverito, with music by Ronnie Lawson and lyrics by Ronnie Lawson, Wendy Biller and Chris Hawthorne. Direction by Sam Viverito. AN INTOLERANT VAUDEVILLE was inspired by Sam Viverito's visit to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. Written in the structure of a traditional vaudeville show, An Intolerant Vaudeville cracks open a piñata of slurs, stereotypes and identity politics that will leave the audience gasping from laughter, or maybe from shock. Sam Viverito (Co-writer, Director) is an internationally recognized director and choreographer. Wendy Biller (Co-writer, Co-lyricist) is the recipient of the Jury Prize for her play The Refrigerator, which premiered in New Mexico this summer, by the Fusion Theatre Company. Wendy began her career in NYC as a choreographer. Chris Hawthorne (Co-writer, Co-lyricist) began his career as Assistant Director for the New York Art Theatre, where he worked on and acted in William Burroughs' Naked Lunch and Kenneth Koch's The Red Robins. Ronnie Lawson (Composer, Co-lyricist) has long been a presence on the New York music scene.
