Random Access Theatre reclaims and re-imagines works of the past as a way to engage in modern issues, while simultaneously nurturing the development of new pieces from emerging New York City artists. Based in DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights with performances throughout New York City, Random Access borrows its name from Random Access Memory, or RAM, a form of computer data storage. RAM allows information to be stored in various locations on a computer’s hard drive, which can then be accessed in any order to complete the necessary process or task. We choose to make theatre the same way: pulling resources together from many locations to create unique, dynamic, and visceral productions. 

FRIGID New York’s mission is to provide both emerging and established artists the opportunity to create and produce original work of varied content, form, or style, and to amplify their diverse voices. We do this by presenting an array of monthly programming, mainstage productions, an artist residency, and eight annual theater festivals that create an environment of collaboration, resourcefulness, and innovation. Founded in 1998, the aim was and is to form a structure, allowing multiple artists to focus on creating and staging new work and providing affordable rental space to scores of independent artists. Now in our third decade we have produced a massive quantity of stimulating downtown theater.
