Edgy New York Theater - NYC Fringe Turns

Three Weeks of Groundbreaking Independent New York Theater



11th Annual Frigid Theater Festival



February 13th-March 5th





You've probably heard of the NYC Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) - part of the namesake independent theater movement, and the largest in North America - but did you know the Fringe family hosts a winter event in Manhattan as well? The 11th Annual Frigid Theater Festival presents three weeks of cutting-edge work (all 60 minutes or less), presented in a pair of hip East Village theaters, minutes from our SoHo hotel. This year's celebration of indy voices welcomes 30 companies from across the globe, presenting over 150 performances, February 13th-March 5th. Here are a few pieces that stand out as must-sees:


A Crisis Called New York

The Kraine Theater

85 E 4th Street

Peek behind the curtain at the everyday life of New Yorkers. Visiting is one thing, but the greatest city in the world is a very different place when you live here - a nonstop love/hate relationship rife with unbelievable fun, intense stress, and strong drinks.


Nicky's Solo Improvised Musical

The Kraine Theater

A man, a piano, and audience suggestions marry in a completely unique, totally improvised night of musical hilarity from Toronto star, Nicky Nasrallah.


Illusion of Choice: A Magical Experience with Kardenni

The Kraine Theater

Guaranteed to leave you both thinking and laughing out loud, this mind-bending show is one of Frigid's hardest to define.


Mark Toland, Mind Reader

UNDER St. Marks

94 St. Marks Place

No secrets are safe, as the "Top Booked Mind Reader in the US & Canada" wows the crowd with jaw-dropping accuracy.


Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother

The Kraine Theater

The name says it all. This is a doozy of a show from two-time Moth SLAM champ, Jamie Brickhouse, likened to the work of Carrie Fisher by Interview magazine.


The Refugee Plays

The Kraine Theater

On a serious note, these short, poignant vignettes deftly tackle the plight of international refugees from a prism of perspectives.
