New run for ‘Runaway Princess’


Mary Goggin's autobiographical show “Runaway Princess,” which swept the United Solo Awards in 2018, is currently running at 2019 FRIGID New York Festival.

Subtitled “A Hopeful Tale of Heroin, Hooking and Happiness” it is written and performed by Goggin and directed by Dan Ruth at IATI, 64 East 4th St., Manhattan.

“Miss Goggin injects effortless humor into a masterful story of drugs, homelessness and prostitution,” said one admiring critic.
