Open: 02/16/17- Close: 03/04/17 Denial Is A Wonderful Thing
DENIAL IS A WONDERFUL THING. One woman, three continents, six decades, and a lusty affair: from Mumbai to the Outback, New York to the Haight, and naïve schoolgirl to free spirit, Christina reveals all in this one-woman "talk story". Written by Christina Augello & John Caldon, Directed by Ryan Marchand. Presented by the 2017 FRIGID Festival, produced by EXIT Theatre from San Francisco, California, performed by Christina Augello, written by Christina Augello and John Caldon, direced by Ryan Marchand, sound design by Gregory Scharpen, lighting design by Curtis Overacre.

Under St. Mark's Theatre : 94 St. Mark's Place
Open: 02/15/17- Close: 02/28/17 Go! Go! Gilgamesh!
The epic of the Gilgamesh is the first story ever written down by human beings and it is a doozy. Sex, power, violence, love, guilt, and death- it's all there. But now the classic tale is getting a lively, irreverent makeover in this high-spirited musical romp complete with cardboard sets, a self-orchestrated cast and toe-tapping joke folk hits!

Long-time Antifolk star and member of the controversial Pizza Underground, Phoebe Kreutz wrote the whole show on her guitar. She has been called “the kingpin of the Joke Folk genre” by the New Yorker and "genuinely funny" by the New York Times. 

With influences ranging from P.G. Wodehouse and Jonathan Richman to DMX, "Go! Go! Gilgamesh!" provides a clear way in to a sometimes-intimidating text. It’s tuneful.

Open: 02/15/17- Close: 03/05/17 VISIONARY VOICES: 2 WOMEN WRITERS, 3 BIG STORIES
Three poignant, tantalizing plays by two pioneering women playwrights, exploring gender roles, race, and death in America’s early twentieth century.

 

Trifles by Susan Glaspell, directed by Aimee Todoroff
A "ripped from the headlines" murder-mystery is the inspiration for Glaspell's iconic play about a seemingly diabolical crime without a motive. While the investigators look to the usual clues, only their wives, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters, are able to clearly see course of events that lead to a woman's desperate act.  Director Aimee Todoroff states, “The discussion around the inclusion of women's perspectives in our public discourse, especially in politics and media, has been a hot topic in 2016.
