The funny thing about addiction is... everyone has one! This comedic and heart warming story follows Graham Chili, a country boy from Texas who has just moved to New York City to follow his dreams as a wall street stock broker by day and a cabaret singer by night. Looking to make friends and connect with his new surroundings in the spirit of his hometown "mega church capital," he enters a church in timesquare, Manhattan in search of the "choir practice" room. Instead he erroneously stumbles upon several 12 step meetings going on in the church basement that divert his attention, inspire his love life, and create new life realizations!
With the celebratory satirical and witty success of the hit Broadway show Book of Mormon, 12 Steps similarly both entertains and educates also with light parody, both using the popularity and the mystery of the infamous self help program without mockery, but with clever direction!

The show's uproarious fast-paced 100 minutes promises to leave you gasping for breath… in a good way!
New York's finest improvisers join forces with New York's finest poets in a unique format that is part comedy show, part poetry feature and completely unpredictable.
It all begins with an exquisite corpse written collaboratively, line-by-line by the audience beforehand. The improvisers then delve in, building an entire world around the themes and imagery of the poem and inhabiting it with a cast of characters that are wildly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, and everything in between.
Along the way, the show is fueled by the amazing work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the country and across the globe, shaking the rafters and rousing souls with original poetry that is raw, personal and profound.
The whole show ends with the performance of a brand new poem written on the spot and inspired by the entire show. It's comedy, it's poetry, it's theater and art. It is everything you came to this New York to see.
The cast includes performers and poets with credits from This American Life, NPR, The Onion, The Second City, The Truth Podcast, Reductress and Story Pirates.

From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park comes this hilarious Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get.

While Gad Elmaleh is arguably the most widely known and beloved comedian in Europe, he has now embarked on the newest chapter of his career: breaking through to the American audience. For this, he has crafted, Oh My Gad, a new stand-up show entirely in English, building upon the jokes that made him famous overseas and including new observations from his life in America.
Gad debuted his first all English show in a sold-out ten-night run at Joe's Pub at The Public last year, introducing his singular humor and insight to a new audience. During his current run, he will continue the enormous task of not just speaking a new language fluently, but of using it with the timing, nuance and syntax required for great stand-up comedy.
In 400 years of Shakespeare, there's never been a night of Bard on the boards quite like Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet as Performed by David Carl.
As Shakespearean actor, puppeteer, singer and action-movie director, Gary Busey (played by New York actor-writer David Carl) performs each scene of Hamlet his way, with occasional detours into great Busey moments from Buddy Holly and Lethal Weapon. The heady mix of high and low-brow comedy celebrates Shakespeare's classic by using it to reflect upon the jaded, celebrity-crazed, meme-obsessed world around us.
Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet won the Outstanding Solo Performance Award at the New York Fringe in 2014, and received 5-star reviews at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
