Festival of the Offensive Announces Line Up, New Staff
New York, NY (February 5, 2014) The Festival of the Offensive (F-OFF) announces an exciting and varied festival program sure to live up to it’s name. The line up is as follows:
- Click Chamber
- Crazy Pussy
- Puff Puff
- The Silencer
- ThanksKilling: The Musical
- Swipe This Motherfucka’s!!!
- A Most Offensive Cabaret
F-OFF showcases live performance that attacks the status quo and otherwise might not be produced because the establishment doesn’t have the balls to do so. The festival was founded by writer and comedian, Jacquetta Szathmari. A veteran producer and performer at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and a rabid fan of independent theatre, Szathmari was inspired by new productions she saw that were taking true risks on the stage.
The Festival is excited to add Rachel Neuberger as Managing Director. Neuberger was most recently Executive Producer for the sell out run of Nothing To Hide, directed by Neil Patrick Harris. Other producing credits include A Behanding in Spokane, Judas & Me, On The Line, 3 Dark Tales, Tis the !@#$%-ing Season,Texarkana Waltz, Aruba, Seatbelts & Big Fat Buddhas, and Orange Lemon Egg Canary. She served as Artistic Director for the first two seasons of SPF (Summer Play Festival) in 2004 and 2005. Previously she was Associate Producer at Ostar Productions. She also produced the workshop versions of Nora Ephron's Love, Loss and What I Wore and Innocence (Jonathan Dove and Alaisdair Middleton). She is on the Board of Directors for Diverse City Theatre Company.
