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 Never Gets Old/Funny Women Of A Certain Age"If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the behind any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”Carole Montgomery creator of Funny Women of A Certain AgeWhat began as a way to work with her friends has exploded on the comedy scene. When Carole (a veteran of the stand up scene for over 40 years) started, you would never see two female comics on the same show. Fast forward to today’s comedy scene and nothing has changed, even though there are way more women in comedy.With two TV specials on Showtime and a third TV special about to be filmed, this show is not to be missed! Featuring a rotating cast of some of the best female comics of a certain age!**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.
