Interview by JEN BUSH
Frisco Cosme is what is considered in the industry to be a “Triple Threat”. He is a skilled and experienced singer, dancer, and actor. He says, “I have been fortunate enough to be able to do all three and love every minute of it.” Though he admits it can be tough and grueling, BUT pay off is worth every ounce of effort.
Frisco is part of the ensemble of POSTAL MADNESS by Michael Anthony & Perry Crowe
and directed by Frances Lozada (Paul Gealone, NY Producer)

Postal Madness is based on Michael Anthony’s animated series. The play was first presented Off-Broadway in 2014 and was a Strawberry Theatre Festival Semi-Finalist in 2020.
I sat down with this multi-dimensional artist to find out about the exciting show he’s in as well as what other interesting things he has on the horizon.
What drew you to this project?
What drew me to this project was Frances Lozada. She asked me to audition back in 2020 for the role of Loco. It was a 30 minute version of the play. It was a great experience!
Do you find a sense of added responsibility when dealing with plays that tackle serious, mature, or timely subject matter?
There is a sense of added responsibility when dealing with sensitive issues because we need to consider people and their feelings. There is that thought of people feeling insulted, disrespected etc. Keeping all that in mind we still have to come across funny and convincing. So it adds a little pressure.
What’s so good about off-off Broadway/indie theater?
The good thing about off-off Broadway is that we can kind of push the envelope a little further than in Broadway plays.
It’s obvious the world is steadily reopening. What do you feel is different now than before pandemic? Another thought: what should be different now than before pandemic?
What should be different now than before is people being more aware that we now have to accept that this pandemic will be part of our lives and we have to find a way to cope with it.
What’s next for you?
I am still auditioning and appearing in several projects. I am also currently working on my debut album and looking forward to filming my second music video.
