FRIGID New York Festival Returns for a 2nd Go-Round

The good folks at Horse TRADE and San Francisco’s EXIT Theatre have just announced the line-up for their 2nd Annual FRIGID New York Festival. Lots of good stuff here. Some of the highlights include:

  • American Badass (or 12 Characters in Search of a National Identity) – a new solo performance by fellow contributor Chris Harcum (Some Kind of Pink Breakfast, Anhedonia Road).
  • Antonin…Mon Artaud – Roi “Bubi” Escudero’s multimedia performance art exploration of the title character and the Theatre of Cruelty (advance word on this, based on reports from Bubi’s workshop production earlier this year, is excellent).
  • The Burning Bush Part Two (In the Bush!)Tracey Erin Smith‘s follow-up to her show about a stripping rabbi, which played last year’s festival (and which I favorably reviewed here).
  • Korean Badass – Stevie Lee Saxon’s solo show about his quest to become the first Asian Steve McQueen returns for a second go-round after debuting at the National Asian American Theatre Festival this past summer.
  • Preparation Hex – Bob Brader (Spitting in the Face of the Devil, Bite) debuts a new solo performance about fear, obsession, and hemorrhoids.
  • Sporknotes – a new show from Rising Sun Performance Company in which the cast improvise abridged versions of great literary works as chosen by the audience.
  • Whence Came Ye Scarlett O’Hara O’Hanrahan? – Melle Powers’ solo show from this past summer’s FringeNYC Festival gets a return engagement.

And there’s more where all of that came from. Check out FRIGID New York’s official website for more details and information. The festival runs from February 27th to March 9th, 2008 in all three of Horse TRADE’s downtown venues – The Kraine Theater, The Red Room, and UNDER St. Marks.

    Sporknotes does promise to be awesome, we’ve just added Ben Rameaka and Chris Enright from BLOODY! to increase our awesomeness factor tenfold.
