Shiva for Anne Frank celebrates Jewish identity, girlhood, community mourning, life, and begs the question of whether or not one Jewish comedian can and should relate herself to Anne Frank. Although Anne Frank is one of the most famous and recognizable young women in the world, her legacy is often infantilized or simplified so she can remain a saintly beacon from one of humanity’s darkest chapters. In June, when Anne Frank would have turned 90, Rachel invites you to laugh, cry, celebrate and mourn as filtered through her own hilarious experiences of getting a nose job, rehashing her Bat Mitzvah, and sharing her favorite story of a one night stand (with a German). To keep the show socially conscious and aware, Rachel is consistently updating the piece to stay up to date with current news and relevant events.

$1 from each ticket sold will be donated to The International Rescue Committee, a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development nongovernmental organization, the IRC provides emergency aid and long-term assistance to refugees and those displaced by war, persecution, or natural disaster.

TOBINCON: All Shows PWYC for Fringers!

Tobin Mitnick dives into the grotesque world of online grifters with sketch and stand-up in order to show us that the game may have changed, but the players are all still here. All shows PWYC for Fringers!


A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real..." A show beyond this reality.
