THE FARTISTE: Outstanding Musical - NYC Fringe Festival

Michael Roberts and playwright Charlie Schulman collaborated on a show about French 19th-Century flatulence artist Joseph Pujol, THE FARTISTE, which won the award for Best Musical at the 2006 New York International Fringe Festival.  The show transferred Off-Broadway in the 2011-2012 season, and was followed by a concert performance at The Charing Cross Theatre on London's West End.

“With an outstanding book by Charlie Schulman and brilliant music and lyrics by Michael Roberts, this 2006 NYC International Fringe Festival Award-Winning outrageous new musical not only manages to successfully put the word "art" back into "fart," but it does so in an unusually poignant way. –

The show manages to be both raucously funny and surprisingly touching, dignifying its subject even while providing no small degree of explosive humor.  – New York Post
