Art world veteran Barbara Strongin's decades-long experiences at both Christie's Auction House and Sotheby's Institute of Art form the basis of the insider's look in Beneath the Gavel, an immersive, physical theater piece that gives the audience an unforgettable glimpse at one of the only markets to show up on the front pages of every major newspaper: the art market.
In Beneath the Gavel, audience members, at first observers, quickly become bidders — with fistfuls of cash — as the performers around them bring various roles to life: deep-pocket collectors, art dealers, artists, critics, and auctioneers. An experience like few before it, Beneath the Gavel boldly explores — through vivid storytelling and theatricality — how art is created and is assigned value. As the stakes rise, so too does the audience's understanding of the excitement — and tension — of a world that values art as high commerce, one at odds with a world that depends on art for cultural nourishment.

An immersive multimedia theatrical experience. Situated in a hexagonal set, with three panels of video screens augmenting the action, music videos and live action interludes tell the story of an oblivious ski legend, Dirk Dassler (Jordan Sarah), who at the height of his fame, grapples with preposterous and privileged personal crises.
Set to the score of the Dynamic Alpine Sexual album, this parody of the "lifestyle genre" follows an antihero skiing legend, Dirk Dassler, who sabotages a high flying career to follow a deluded dream that finds him back where he started, albeit with his soul and dreams crushed.
The mob just made a hit, but everyone will live to talk about it. And talking they are because when the "boys" get together, it's a scream! Join this interactive show for a private audience with the Don; maybe he'll make you an offer you can't refuse. Mingle with mobsters and molls, meet the new "Boss of Bosses," break bread and heads with wiseguys and Mafia princesses. Sure, you'll be ducking bullets over Broadway, but that won't stop the fun! Eat, drink, dance, and be merry. You might just die laughing!
This two and a half hour comedy mystery includes a three-course sit-down dinner and dancing. Audience members even have the chance to solve the case and win prizes. Seven prizes are awarded at every performance and include "Academy Awards" for the best actor and actress in the audience.
In the third chapter of the Big Gay Italian trilogy, Anthony J. Wilkinson's character is approaching his 40s and facing the challenges of balancing his now successful weight loss company with past and present gay relationships. New and familiar characters come together to join him on his journey through another outrageous comedy of errors.
Enter The Portal and follow Dante through epic deserts and alpine mountains as he seeks the beautiful and mysterious Beatrice while being pursued by his inner demons. Driven by epic rock music that pulses with tribal and electronic beats, The Portal is part concert, part movie, and part performance. It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
In Show Up, award-winning solo show performer, producer, and SOLOCOM creator Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit) uses his decades of solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified tropes of the genre on their head. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life experiences of the audience into a single vibrant life-story that is familiar, completely fresh, and unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to cue lights, design the set, and direct. Show Up provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this high wire, simultaneously commenting on social anxiety and performance challenges. Ultimately, Show Up demonstrates that the value of truth in autobiographical performance is totally subjective.
Punchdrunk's Sleep No More is an award-winning theatrical experience that retells Shakespeare's Macbeth through the lens of a film noir movie. Audience members move freely through the world of the story at their own pace, choosing where to go and what to see. Everyone's journey is different.
Note: No one under sixteen will be admitted.
The Strangest invites audiences into an immersive theatrical experience in which they enter a traditional Arab storytelling café, where for centuries masters of the oral tradition wove tales of intrigue. The Strangest is an absurdist murder mystery loosely inspired by the unnamed Arab killed in Albert Camus' classic novel The Stranger. Experience French Algiers on the brink of revolution, and witness three Arab brothers vie for the love of the same woman. Their bitter rivalry ends only when one is gunned down by a French stranger.
Written by Betty Shamieh (The Black Eyed, Roar, Fit for a Queen) and directed by May Adrales (Vietgone, Luce), The Strangest is a truly singular theatrical event that invites audiences to experience the centuries-old live performance tradition of Arabic storytelling that predates Shakespeare, and to enter into a world that most New Yorkers might otherwise never be able to access, particularly at this time where it is much more difficult for Arab artists to perform in America.
What if the fate of your favorite video game characters rested in your hands? Take control as they take the stage in The Video Games! Princess Zelda, Queen of the Console, is celebrating the 64th Annual Video Games and needs the audience's assistance (through social media) to ensure that this year's games are bigger, badder, and bloodier than last year's! It's a different show every night as iconic pixelated heroes and villains — such as Donkey Kong, Lara Croft, and the Master Chief — compete to win the coveted title of Player One.
Discover the secrets of your favorite neighborhood or museum on a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt. You won't be collecting objects (put back that statue!) but searching for answers to tricky and humorous questions. You can decipher a message in the sky in Central Park, find out what to do with a "fun goon" in Chinatown, track ghosts in Greenwich Village, solve a murder mystery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and much more. No knowledge of any hunt location is required — you just need a sharp mind and a good pair of shoes.
Hit the Lights! Theater Co. is pleased to present the New York City premiere of Whales. Inspired by punk rock, game shows, documentaries, and Herman Melville's seminal masterpiece Moby-Dick, HTL! invites you to catch a glimpse of the world that brought us a certain legendary white whale and the men who hunt him. Diving into the unknown, HTL! explores the classic title using the company's iconic shadow puppetry, the interplay between darkness and light, rock ballad sea shanties, and all the curiosity and terror of the sea.
