Wishing everyone near and far "Happy Holidays" from ETG!
Happy 20th Anniversary to FringeNYC - The New York International Fringe Festival!
Two years ago the cast of Twelfth Night was singing in the streets outside the Sheen Center, getting ready for our performance...and this year we're wishing every show great success in this year's festival! (Thanks to RowBoat Productions for this great video!)
Celine Neon provided spectacular music for last winter's production of Bryony Lavery's "Frozen". Check out this acoustic video of their song "My Main" - we're huge fans of any music videos recorded in living rooms!
"You are a bird and I am a fish...and the sky is your sea."

2 years ago today, this motley group of artists helped to create #ETGTwelfthNight and we opened our workshop production at The Tank in Times Square. We had about 12 rehearsals (during which most of the music was written) and 1 tech run through. We sold out 6 performances and moved to FringeNYC - The New York International Fringe Festival the following summer, becoming a Time Out New York "Best Of Fringe"!
2 years ago today, our first casting notice for a new folk music filled production of Shakespeare's classic tale of gender-bending love went live (with only a few songs written). We went on to be a Time Out New York "Best of Fringe" in #FringeNYC soon after, recording 10 songs by Conly Basham.
For the first time ever...we've got a video of recording "It's Illyria" for Twelfth Night!
Originally written by Josh Freilich and Conly Basham for the ensemble, the song ended up changing to be sung by Antonio and Sebastian.
Take a trip back to Illyria and check out the beautiful production shots of Twelfth Night in FringeNYC - The New York International Fringe Festival from 2014!
We're a few days away from Twelfth Night's 1 year anniversary in FringeNYC!
Here's a picture from the rehearsal where "It's Illyria" came together for the first time.
It's been 1 year since we said goodbye to the citizens of Zurich, New York. Check out a video of Brian Reisman performing Janis Esch's "Lake Town" from Alex Riad's play "When You Go."
