Every August, FringeNYC overwhelms downtown with 200 or so shows spread over a crazy 16 venues. It has been the breeding ground for many, from the comedienne Mindy Kalling to Urinetown!. One of the charms of the fesitval is how unweildy it is, and much of the fun is sampling shows so odd they would never be given normal runs at NYC's otherwise traditional venues. We trawled through all 200 shows to find a few that are definitely worth a look, and here are some:

Craving art? Gallerist Meredith Rosen — whose gallery's new exhibition, Cy Gavin: Overture, opened last week — recommends her top NYC art picks of the week. CRAVE the shows that excite you to keep track and spread word of mouth. RATE them once you've seen them.  Mary Weatherford: Red Hook at Brennan & Griffin through Aug. 1, 2015 James 'Son Ford' Thomas: The Devil and His Blues at 80wse through Aug. 7, 2015

From the recreation of King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (an East Village bar from the 1980s) at the Whitney to Michael Cerveris at Joe's Pub to the start of Cymbeline at Shakespeare in the Park, it's an exciting week of culture in New York City. CRAVE what excites you to keep track and spread your excitement. RATE events once you've seen them. If it sounds too absurd not to be true, it must be. Point Break Live! — the stage adaptation of the 1992 Keanu Reeves extreme sports blockbuster — plays at the Highline Ballroom on Friday, July 17. It features a new, unrehearsed Keanu Reeves who is pulled at random from the audience moments before each action-packed show. On Saturday, July 18, the talented filmmakers of the FilmShop take on the theme of strange bedfellows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, through a series of shorts varied in storytelling styles and genres. The night’s festivities include a live performance by electro-pop duo, Stranger Cat, and a DJ dance party to follow. On Sunday, July 19, 54 Below dusts off one of the most brave, boisterous, brazen, raucous theatre experiences of the 1980s, the musical Starmites. It’s been a while, so here’s a reminder: it’s a musical about a teenage girl obsessed with comic books and gifted with uncontrollable superpowers. She is transported to a colorful and imaginative fantasy world inhabited by a vast array of fiercely idiosyncratic characters fighting for power, prestige, and interplanetary control. Sounds ripe for a revival, no? Also on Sunday, the Queens Museum of Art opens its exhibit of the work of Robert Seydel. Seydel, who passed away in 2011, is a cult figure in the world of collage art, merging actual personages with fictional characters. See one of the weekend's new movies. Options include Amy Schumer's Trainwreck, the new-style rom com that is getting great reviews, or Ant Man, a super hero heist flick.

It's a fun week of culture this week in New York City — from a hip-hop festival in Brooklyn to a hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton that starts previews on Broadway. CRAVE what excites you to keep track and spread buzz. RATE events once you've seen them.  There are two new exhibitions opening Friday, July 10 at The Brooklyn Museum — FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds, which is a collaboration between Brooklyn-based artists, and an ode to sneaker culture, which puts 150 pairs on display. This weekend is the 11th annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Expect to hear performances by Common, Mobb Deep, Lion Babe, Freeway, Skyzoo, Charles Hamilton, and more.   Jose Alberto, also known as El Canario, can make a whistle into a solo instrument.

It features work at the intersection of gaming and performance.
