Welcome to the official Penguin Patreon! We're thrilled to have join our FRIGID Family. We are big fans indie theater, unique comedy, classic variety shows, ambitious festivals, and keeping the lights on. We support our community, and we are so grateful that our community supports us. 

Who We Are

Since 1997 FRIGID New York has been home to thousands of artists and independent theater companies, becoming "arguably the epicenter of the independent theater world in New York" (Leonard Jacobs, Clyde Fitch Report) and "a mecca for terrific off-off Broadway theater" (Martin Denton, nytheatre.com).

What We Do

FRIGID presents eight annual festivals, including EstroGenius, FRIGID Festival, Queerly, Gotham Storytelling, and the Obie-Award winning The Fire This Time Festival. Last year, they presented 750 performances including 25 individual monthly productions. FRIGID is proud and honored to celebrate its 22nd season and to launch the next phase of its continuing mission to support artists and present the very best alternative, diverse and original theater to our loyal and growing audience.

Where We Come From

Formerly Horse Trade Theater Group, FRIGID became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2018, continuing the long-standing Horse Trade tradition of supporting independent work at The Kraine Theater and UNDER St. Marks. By transitioning to a non-profit model after 20 years of faithful and proven community service, FRIGID has been able to increase its commitment to paying all artists and staff that create the vibrant work on our stages.

Why We're Here

We faithful penguins are renewing our fundraising efforts to ensure our historic company's future in an always shifting and uncertain real estate market. As we grow our efforts to provide a home for the next generation of independent theater artists, we welcome your support, financially or otherwise, and look forward to partnering with other like-minded organizations to sustain and strengthen the living treasure that is the independent theater community in New York City.
