  • Conversations
  • ‘Conversations’ is comprised of two monologues and tackles heavy themes like suicide, self harm, and addiction. Yet, it somehow manages to also shout for joy and love and a luster for life. It is woven into a monologue that explores sexuality, questioning heteronormativity, and one’s own repressed desires. Overall, it’s an intimate look into a woman’s life as she attempts to “show us the person [she] is in her journal.”**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

  • The Reparations Show
  • 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. **All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

  • The Starry Night | Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
  • Mike Daisey explores an indelible image from the mind of a tortured and failed artist. From college dorm rooms to MOMA keychains, from oil and canvas fakes to artificial intelligence, Daisey peels back the layers of this image and its signifiers in a hilarious evening about the ecstasy of art and our constant discontent. **All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

These were startling and stirring words, the kind that hogtie your attention. They are worth having Daisey, and live theater, back for."The New York Times"I felt home again—listening to a talented storyteller spin a version of a year not entirely unlike the one I had just spent, felt really, really good."The Washington Post"Amid all the laughs, there’s a lucid lesson here. Mike Daisey singlehandedly redefines the concept of mansplaining. He strips the practice of its condescension and defensiveness and turns it into a conscientious and humble discipline of self-examination as a man."DC Metro ArtsClick here to view the program(This link will take you to the program for the most recent Mike Daisey event.

  • Funny Women of a Certain Age
  • 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.**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

There are run-on sentences. There are jokes. There is also a minor amount of theatrical magic, but mostly it’s one queer woman on stage for less than 45 minutes explaining how all of her uncles died.**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.
