OUR SOLD OUT FESTIVAL RUN IS EXTENDED!!
TWO MORE CHANCES! MARCH 19TH & 26TH
A darkly poetic satire of Phantom of the Opera as seen through the iron bars of a carnival freak-show cage. With puppets more twisted than a melodrama mustache (and twice as greasy), ERIK points and laughs at the real freak show- us.

From the original novel to the Lon Chaney silent film, to the Andrew Loyd Webber musical, and countless iterations in between, the characters of Leroux’ novel have been twisted and turned like the sewer tunnels beneath a Paris Opera House.
Playwright John Patrick Bray explores the story from the vantage of an youth, beauty, image-obsessed 21st Century. With the moral ambiguity of a carnival side-show, he uses this terrific adventure/thriller/love story to celebrate the hick-ups, hang-ups and double standards we’ve simply stuck up on our cultural shelf.

FRIGID New York was founded by Horse Trade and EXIT Theatre in 2007.
Drawn to CAFF'S main principle, "...to provide all artists, emerging and established, with the opportunity to produce their play no matter the content, form or style and to make the event as affordable and accessible as possible for the members of the community," Horse Trade was proud to sign on to the tradition, and thaw out New York's ideas of what a theatre festival can be. FRIGID is also a proud member of USAFF (US association of Fringe Festivals)
In true support of theatre on the fringe of the mainstream, the artists take home 100% of their box office, and the festival producers do not receive royalties from future performances. The festival's producers are proud to support self-producing artists' growth and future success.
