This summer theater festival in Midtown Manhattan includes scores of independently produced theater, from comedy to drama, and is the brainchild of John Chatterton, creator of OOBR ("The Off-Off-Broadway Review"). The festival began in 2000. In 2013, it unfolds in the various theater spaces of Abingdon Arts Complex and Workshop Theater Company, all found within 312 West 36th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, near Penn Station.

    Tickets to festival productions can be purchased via OvationTix. Discounted festival passes are also on sale.
