Check out the 2nd Annual So Many Shakespeares Festival!

#SoMaShakes runs July 17th - August 2nd!

The 2nd Annual So Many Shakespeares Festival is here! This year's theme is everyone favorite, terribly melodramatic piece - Hamlet. Four different companies tackle this classic tale in our completely virtual festival, because no matter how hard the world tries, curator Genny Yosco is still attention-seeking enough to find a way to make this work.

This year's lineup includes the Brawling Bard's take on Hamlet's play-within-a-play,  Something From Abroad's Spanish-language telenovela adaptation, a super sketchy take on the show by Punchline Loading Comedy, and a mockumentary-style show about attempting Shakespeare on Zoom by Sour Grapes Productions.

  • Funny Women of a Certain Age
  • All Audience online until further notice. Funny Women of a Certain Age Comedy is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all.  They’ve raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work. Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the ass any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”- creator Carole MontgomeryFunny Women Of A Certain Age the TV special premiered March 23, 2019 on the Showtime Network to rave reviews.FeaturingCarole Montgomery

  • WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR US LATELY?If you don’t have a good answer, we’ll send you our Venmo username.The Reparations Show is a variety show that will center stories created by and about Black and Indigenous artists. This weekly show kicks off on Juneteenth as part of FRIGID New York’s Queerly Festival, and each week will be hosted by a different BIPOC artist. The show is the brainchild of Erez Ziv, managing artistic director of FRIGID New York, and Kevin R. Free, the Curator of The Queerly Festival. It was created as a way to offer paid opportunities for BIPOC artists. Besides featuring work by these artists, each episode will include a segment called “This Week in Reparations” that examines an organization’s statement of solidarity with the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and keeps track of the work they have done toward that goal since releasing the statement.  You can watch the show right here, or join us on Facebook Live to send us comments!
