"Urban Momfare" - FringeNYC Encore Series

By Byrne Harrison

I get a lot of invitations to see shows, so many that I would basically have to quit my day job to be able to see them all.

Which is why I love getting photos from shows.  Even if I know I won't be able to see them, it's fun to look at them and try to figure out what the show must be like.

So I offer you two photos from Urban Momfare, which is part of the FringeNYC Encore Series, after its critically acclaimed Fringe NYC run.  It's produced by Emerging Artists Theatre, a terrific company, and is being performed at the Soho Playhouse.

Here is the description of the show from the press release:

Why don't we ever hear songs about moms not actually liking their kids? This romp through motherhood on Manhattan's Upper East Side spans 17 years: "Music For Gifted and Talented Babies" to bra straps and Bellinis. Strap on your stilettos cause this is war!

The production stars Tiffan Borelli (More Of Our Parts/The Kennedy Center), Antonietta Corvinelli (The Reunion/Hudson Guild), Sandi DeGeorge (Camelot/National Tour), Cheryl Howard (The Sensational Josephine Baker/Theatre Row), Izzy Hanson Johnston (Billy Elliot/Broadway), Christine Toy Johnson (The Music Man/Broadway) and Christiana Little (The Bardy Bunch/Theatre at St. Clements).

The creative team includes choreography by Janine Molinari (Artistic Director, DanceMolinari), assistant choreography by Ann-Marie Sepe, set design by Tim McMath, lighting design by G. Ben Swope, costume design by Nicole Wee, sound design by Nick Gossett, projection design by David Bengali, and stage management by Berit Johnson.

Final performances are:

Saturday, September 27th at 7:00 pm
Sunday, September 28th at 5:00 pm
