These Events

For some reason I do not see this blog every too often as usual these days, and yet here I go blah bloggng about events of the day again because I see them listed everywhere and also because hey, it's less writing sometimes, especially when I find myself in bloggerland with blogger burnout approaching. And in my attempt to maintain my other blog, that other blog seems as if it wants to confuse me and give me twice as much work sometimes, and it also seems as if it is becoming a replica of this blog. So as I was blah blogging again, what's up with that Frigid New York Festival 2008 February 27th - March 9th, that has been listed everywhere this past month. Is that another version of that Fringe Festival? Well, it seems as if there a lot fun plays to check out at their festival. Their website describes it as 3 theaters, 12 Days, 30 shows, and over 150 performances. Here are some of the 2nd Annual Frigid New York Off Broadway shows, and some of these plays seem funny as heck:
