Best of Fringe Extensions returns for a fourth year of extended runs of the greatest hits of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, running July 2 – 28 at five Hollywood venues. Produced by Combined Artform, this year’s Extensions series features a diverse array of exceptional ensemble and solo work at Theatre Asylum, The Complex, Lounge Theatres, The Lex, and Three Clubs. With multiple shows per venue each weekend and the special deals and gatherings at Three Clubs bar, the action-packed festival atmosphere of the Hollywood Fringe Festival will continue through July.

Winners of Best of Fringe Extensions are selected by Producing Artistic Director Matthew Quinn and a selection committee of venue representatives. Winners were selected for their artistic merit and commercial potential and will use Extensions to further develop their work or explore the possibility of longer runs.  Past winners of Best of Fringe Extensions have gone on to tour nationally and enjoy extended commercial runs in the Los Angeles area.
