Erica Fee is the founding producer and board president of the annual KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival, which celebrates its ninth festival in 2020.  Under her stewardship, the non-profit Fringe has blossomed from the mere seed of an idea in 2008 to one of the most-attended fringe festivals in the United States and the largest multidisciplinary performing arts festival in New York.

For a decade prior to Fringe, Fee lived in the U.K. running her own London-based theatrical production company. Her many producing, directing, and performance credits include U.K. premieres, and London as well as Edinburgh Festival Fringe productions. She was the first American to receive the prestigious New Producer’s Award from StageOne (Society of London Theatres/TMA), winning twice – the maximum amount it can be received.

Fee is a graduate of the University of Rochester and was the University’s 2016 Commencement Speaker.
