Congratulations to Jennifer Walker! Every Fringe with Benefits member that signed up before February 15 was entered into a drawing to be the Voice of Fringe for one night of the Festival! Jennifer will join the ranks of Maria Bamford, Mona Shamsan, Joy Dolo, and Shanan Custer (among others) by lending voice to the Fringe with a custom overhead message that will be heard by every audience member welcoming them to shows, inviting them to Fringe Central, and reminding them to turn off the phones and "Enjoy the Show!"Benefits vary by membership type and include a combination of the following:
