So, what exactly is a FRIGID Hangover?  Well, if you’re me, it’s the pounding headache you woke up with this morning after celebrating at the FRIGID Closing Ceremonies last night.

But if you’re one of the lucky ones a FRIGID Hangover means that – by popular demand – yours was picked as one of the shows to have an encore presentation.  We’re thrilled that these wonderful performers get another chance to show off their stuff:

  • Fate, Fury and Musical Theatre: A Kind of Cabaret
  • Goodnight Lovin’ Trail
  • Mendacity
  • Paradise Lost
  • Saving Tania’s Privates
  • The Oregon Trail: Quest for the West!
  • We Might Be Experimenting On You
  • Wonder Woman: A How-to Guide for Little Jewish Girls

CONGRATULATIONS to all the shows!

FRIGID Hangovers will run March 7-13 at The Kraine & The Red Room (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Ave and Bowery).

Tickets ($18/$15 students & seniors) may be purchased online at or by calling Smarttix at 212-868-4444.

We Might Be Experimenting On You featuring Kym Bernazky and Melanie Jones
We Might Be Experimenting On You
Mon March 7 @ 7pm & Tue March 8 @ 7pm
The Red Room
Dr’s. Bernazky and Jones (PhD, BFA, WTF) are seeking participants in a theatrical research study. Lab rats will be asked to perform various convention-blasting, audience-related tasks. Hijinks and non-slip shoes are required.

I could say SO MUCH about We Might Be Experimenting On You – but I’ve been sworn to secrecy. Seriously.

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost by John Milton
Mon March 7 @ 8pm
The Kraine
This extraordinary production is a visual and technical treat replete with stunning CGI, spellbinding puppetry and first-rate storytelling.

“More than 350 years ago John Milton created the work Paradise Lost to investigate this timeless question in a timeless way. Paul Van Dyck now brings this gem to us infusing this classic with modern artistic techniques as well as with time-honored ones.”

Saving Tania’s Privates
Tue March 8 @ 8pm
The Kraine
Funny, outrageous and true! This critically acclaimed comedy hit from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will have you laughing till you weep. A show about far-out families, quirky girlfriends and boobs…but not necessarily in that order.

“If you only have a chance to see one show at the FRIGID this year, make Saving Tania’s Privates the one – you won’t regret it.”

Wonder Woman: A How To Guide for Little Jewish Girls
Thu March 10 @ 7pm
The Kraine
Two-time FringeNYC award-winning writer/performer Cyndi Freeman’s latest solo show traces her journey from little suburban Jewish girl obsessed with Wonder Woman to becoming the fabulous burlesque Queen, Cherry Pitz, in NYC. Join her on a crusade to right wrongs while wearing fabulous costumes.


Fate, Fury and Musical Theatre: A Kind of Cabaret
Thu March 10 @ 8:30pm
The Kraine
In a panic, a young actress drives from her house in the suburbs of New York until she can’t drive anymore. On the beach at the very tip of Long Island, the Three Fates of ancient mythology, androgynous and fabulous, wash onto the shore like Venus on the foam and lead the girl on a journey of self-discovery and showtunes.

“Walk into Fate, Fury and Musical Theatre: A Kind of Cabaret expecting to be drunk on talent and damn – you’ll get your elixir and more. Much more. Written and performed by front-woman Liz Wasser, Fate, Fury is Fabulous, Fun and Fantastic.”

Fri March 11 @ 8:30pm
The Kraine
Through the integration of dynamic multi-media installations, Mendacity, a solo word-collage, takes you deep inside the mind of a splintering personality wrought with self-loathing and denial over sexual assault. Join us in a rebellious journey of fragmented transcendence and the offering of hope.
“Ali Kresch delivers a collage of expressions in Mendacity, an experimental visually striking solo performance with a poignant and healing look into the uncomfortable yet significant and much needed subject of rape and the self destruction that could sadly ripple after.”

The Oregon Trail: Quest for the West!
Sat March 12 @ 8:30pm
The Kraine
Inspired by the iconic game, The Oregon Trail: Quest for the West! is an interactive comedy with music. Join our five brave pioneers on a grueling journey as they fight snakebites, dysentery and meager rations. Will YOU ford the river?

“…though experience with the game may help you enjoy the many inside jokes regarding the original game mechanics, this play succeeds in ways the game couldn’t….”

Goodnight Lovin’ Trail

Sun March 13 @ 7pm
The Kraine
Goodnight Lovin’ Trail is a subtle and touching drama that takes place at a truck stop diner in West Texas, where two desperate and lonely strangers find redemption in each other’s eyes while discussing a stolen guitar. The play explores raw human emotions and consequences while these two desperate characters navigate and come to terms with the choices they’ve made on the road of life.

“A perfect gem found along a dusty trail; Goodnight Lovin’ Trail will leave you remembering the things you’ve lost along that road that stretches out behind you.”
