A Tinge of Fringe

The 9th Annual Capital Fringe is almost upon us. Starting July 10th and going to July 27th, adventurous audiences will have access to exploratory artists creating cutting-edge, and contemporary performances in the nation's capital.

Two of the 145 inspiring and eclectic productions are KRPR clients, The Road to High Street and Dracula. A Love Story.

Check out more about them below, and be sure to get your Fringe Button as soon as possible to get access to these shows and more.

The Road to High Street by Andrew Potter

The true, tell-all tale of two unicycle-riding/fire-eating/guitar-playing/rubber chicken-juggling street performers in a one-man, musical, digital storytelling show.  Oh… and it’s about chasing your dreams, too.

Dracula. A Love Story. by Tim Treanor
He is a K Street lobbyist. She is a graduate student. A normal DC couple except that he happens to be Dracula seeking a new bride and she is searching for pure rapture. A modern take of the Bram Stoker classic, Wry Productions explores contemporary ideas about love and life through this timeless drama.

Press so far here.

From the Desks of KRPR

Dear Friends of Kendra Rubinfeld PR,

We wanted to take a moment of your time to share some exciting news. 

As you may know, Kendra Rubinfeld founded the Our City Film Festival in 2008 during her tenure as Program Director for Yachad.  The festival showcases DC focused films, encouraging filmmakers to use the power of their medium to bring communities together and celebrate the rich cultures, stories and scenes that make up our city.

Each year the festival grew in audience, venue and press coverage. Watching the festival grow from an idea to a success was one of Kendra's motivations in pursuing an education and career in PR.

When Kendra Rubinfeld left Yachad in 2013 to found KRPR with Co-Principal, Travis Hare, the rights to the Our City Film Festival came with her. Since then, KRPR has been planning new and exciting things for the festival, which it will manage under its programmatic umbrella.  We hope that this event will continue to position KRPR at the forefront of DC's cultural scene, while simultaneously supporting and encouraging arts and culture in the area. 

This year, Our City Film Festival will take a break from accepting new films, and team up with nonprofit partners, Docs In Progress, to co-present a special event, DECADE OF DOCS IN OUR CITY, on October 18th and 19th at the Burke Theater at the U.S. Navy Memorial.  Find out more about the event here.

In addition, big things are in the works for 2015's festival and we encourage you to stay in the loop by signing up for the Our City Film Festival mailing list and following it on social media below.

Thank you so much for your continued interest in KRPR and we hope to see you in October if not sooner.  As always, if you would like to speak with us about your particular PR and Marketing needs, or find out more about who we are working with, please reach out.

Kendra Rubinfeld & Travis Hare
