FRIGID Theater Festival Wraps Up This Weekend
There is still time to catch some of the 30 different shows being presented in the fringe theater festival, FRIGID , running through the weekend at three different theaters in the East Village. The festival is unique because the selection process is part first- come, first- serve, and part lottery – and focuses on experimental and independent theater. They offer 30 production slots (over a period of 12 days) no longer than 60 minutes in length: 10 shows each in The Kraine Theater and The Red Room (85 East 4th Street), and UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place). The programmers have created an uncensored festival that gives the artists 100% of box office proceeds, and they don’t take royalties on any future productions. The 2011 FRIGID New York Festival runs through March 6th.
