The Hawaii Fringe Festival Circuit
My show Game of Thrones: The Musical was a hit at the Minnesota Fringe Festival back in August 2016. It was also one of the best-selling shows of the O’ahu and Maui Fringe Festivals in January 2017, also making it one of two shows to tour both sides of the inaugural Hawaii Fringe Festival Circuit. I haven’t seen the overall figures for O’ahu, but Game of Thrones: The Musical helped propel the Maui Fringe Festival to an all-time high of ticket sales, with a roughly 50% bump in festival ticket sales versus the previous year. Huzzah!
