EstroGenius

The EstroGenius Festival, the longest running festival celebrating the work of women and gender non-conforming artists in NYC, returns for a fourth year at The Kraine Theatre of E. 4th St. Begun in Manhattan Theatre Source in 2000 as a short-play festival, the festival has launched and supported hundreds of artists in its 19 years and continues through the generous support of FRIGID New York. 


In concurrence with the inclusive values the festival was founded on, this executive team focuses on art generated, written, directed, choreographed, composed and performed by artists who expand the definition of a women’s festival.  The producers strive to create a full, empowering, festival dedicated to a community that hears, sees and celebrates women, gender non-conforming and non-binary artists in all of their dynamic diversity.

  • 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.
