Chalk is a hilarious and unexpected one-man show that's guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages. Chalk invites audiences into a hand-drawn world where imagination is made real and anything can happen. As the world grows before the audience's eyes, performer and audience alike are swept into a fantastical adventure!
Created and performed by Alex Curtis, Chalk is a one-man piece of physical theater / clown that runs approximately 40 minutes. Inspired by the work of classic silent film era comedians, Chalk is both playful and touching. Charlie Chaplin meets Harold and the Purple Crayon in this romantic romp sure to "Draw You In."
In this farcical mash-up of CSI: Miami and The Andy Griffith Show, we find a gruesome string of murders happening in Mayberry. It's up to Andy and Barney to find out who the killer is from a list of familiar faces. Is it Aunt Bee? Floyd the Barber? Otis the Drunk? Or someone else all together...?
Meet Emily Dickinson, Paranormal Investigator!
It's 1849 and New York is a gritty, grimy city filled with ghosts, ghouls, and irresponsible transcendentalists. After a string of curious incidents Emily Dickinson, New England's premiere paranormal investigator, and her estranged mentor Edgar Allan Poe are on the case! Armed with esoteric knowledge and brass knuckles—not to mention a strong grasp on both blank and metered verse—they venture to Brooklyn on the trail of a horrifying new adversary.
Emily Dickinson: Paranormal Investigator is an ahistorical romp through poetry and Americana with ghosts, ghouls, and more! Part of the 2016 FRIGID New York Festival.
Laugh till you drop at the heartwarming, yet highly ludicrous, comedy about a group of five mental patients who must band together and put on a play in order to save their precious Rec Room. But the pressure gets high when creative differences cause rifts between the group. What follows is hilarious, not to mention vulgar, attempts to fix it.
As one assembles an IKEA chair, another determines the meaning of their existence. Devised from journals, emails, and drunken iPhone notes, Help me out here is written and performed by Michael Joel and Kaitlin Overton. Bring a screwdriver…and a Xanax.

BAM's Next Wave Festival has permanently changed the artistic landscape, featuring breakout performances and landmark productions. Using a name that plays on the New Wave in French cinema, BAM president and executive producer Harvey Lichtenstein launched a series entitled "The Next Wave/New Masters" in November 1981 with four productions: three dance works, plus Philip Glass' new opera Satyagraha. A more ambitious program followed in 1982, including a two-evening performance work by Laurie Anderson entitled United States: Parts I-IV.
The success of these first two years helped propel a bolder and riskier program in the years to come—one that has defined BAM and an entire generation of artists. Current Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo was the producing director of the Next Wave in its inception and continues to spearhead BAM's adventurous programming roster with emerging and established artists, including Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, Robert Wilson, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, and Lev Dodin.
