ComedySportz is one of the fastest, funniest, and cleanest comedy shows in NYC. The all-ages event has two teams of comedy improv players going head-to-head for the love, laughter, and applause of the audience. In each ComedySportz NYC improv show, a referee guides the players through a gauntlet of improv songs, scenes, and games, bestowing points and calling fouls along the way. In the end, one team will win the coveted trophy and title of New York Comedy Champion!
Flung in to the future by a befuddled Sea Witch, a crew of misfit pirates now has only one chance of returning home: performing the greatest pirate epic ever seen on stage! But when their script is partially obscured by the ink of an angry squid, these pirates-turned-players must now improvise their musical adventure based on their audience's suggestions! Don't miss this interactive, improvised musical the New York Times says, "provides more laughs than there are bones in Davy Jones's Locker!"
The Haunting of Ichabod Crane will delight and spook all audiences brave enough to take a seat at the table. This site-specific storytelling event will bring audiences up close and personal with the tale of the nervous schoolteacher Ichabod Crane and the legendary Headless Horseman. After climbing the grand staircase of the Armory, the audience will enter mysterious room and take their seats at a large banquet table to conjure the spirit of Ichabod Crane and experience the tale. The production re-imagines Ichabod's past as a 15-year-old American revolutionary at the helm of a cannon on the battlefield and the headless horseman as a fallen Hessian soldier who lost his life during the same battle. The actors combine the original text of Washington Irving classic short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with real-life New York revolutionary-era history as an eerie new legend unfolds. Originally staged at the Old Stone House in Brooklyn (October 2012), this new version of the show has been designed specifically for the Armory.
The improv troupe THE INTERNET DISAGREES is turning ONE YEAR OLD and we're celebrating with two of our favorite people: Dave Herman and RL Stine!
R.L. Stine is coming to let some of your favorite weirdos explore the mind that brought you Goosebumps, Fear Street, and so much more!
After a brief interview with our favorite non-creepy human being Dave Herman (and the uncomfortable Leah Evans), R.L. Stine himself will read short passages from his own books to inspire two whole improv sets featuring The Internet Disagrees.
**This show isn't for the kiddos. We like to get weird. Get a babysitter.
An experiment in anonymous intimacy and fake belief, Not About Face questions the nature of the unseen and unspoken agreements/traditions between performer and audience, accessing the supernatural and spiritual as a way to explore what it means to perceive, know and believe. For this performance, audience members are robed in full-body shrouds and join a free-roaming and anonymous gathering in the performance space. We will come together. We will become anonymous. We will fake belief or believe in faking it.
Climb on board and get ready for adventure in The Secret Theatre's new children's musical, Pirate Pete's Parrot.
The play revolves around Pirate Pete, a lovable rogue on a mission to find his beloved runaway parrot, Polly (who prefers pancakes to boring old birdseed). Armed with an endearing crew of misfits like Jolly Roger (the insufferably happy second mate) and Miroslav the Czech mate (get it?), Pete embarks on a journey complete with songs, sword fights, and plenty of audience interaction.
Princess Particular is off her rocker, all she can think about is her latest scheme to become a ballerina. Her Mom and Dad, King Loadsadough and Queen Bea, want her to focus on her Princess duties. Luckily, her four maids and the Chancellor and Lady in Waiting are on hand to help make her dream come true!
See this littlest royal fusspot and all her family and friends in this brand new musical. Directed by Terry O'Lear.
Queen of the Night is a dark debutante ball thrown by The Marchesa for her daughter Pamina. Queen of the Night is a fusion of dance, music, fashion, circus, culinary delights, theater and nightlife that welcomes the audience into a wholly interactive entertainment experience. Drinks will flow, dinner is served, and over the course of the gala, guests will be engaged, entertained, and immersed in this genre-blurring initiation.
Internationally renowned Flemish director Ivo van Hove, returns to the city for his seventh collaboration with New York Theatre Workshop. Van Hove has received critical acclaim for his fresh interpretations of familiar dramatic works, including, most recently, Roman Tragedies at BAM, as well as productions of The Little Foxes, A Street Car Named Desire and Hedda Gabler at NYTW. In this highly theatrical production of Ingmar Bergman's popular 1974 film Scenes from a Marriage, an ensemble of virtuosic actors invites audiences into an intimate space to experience collectively the human dynamics of a relationship through all the stages of a life—from youth, to middle age to maturity. Van Hove's interpretation illuminates the universal themes of love, identity and vulnerability that are at the heart of Bergman's timeless film.
Based on a true NYC murder case, Speakeasy Dollhouse immerses audience in a surreal, Prohibition-era time capsule featuring live jazz, burlesque, mobsters, moonshine and more.
Transporting audiences to an era of mobsters, moonshine, and murder, Cynthia von Buhler's Speakeasy Dollhouse, one of the city's most unique, interactive, and surreal theatre experiences, proudly celebrated its two-year anniversary in October 2013. Performing to sold-out audiences since October 2011, Speakeasy Dollhouse brings an actual unsolved Prohibition-era murder to life in the downtown building that once served as mobster Meyer Lansky's hangout.
This is an immersive event. Each guest is assigned a role when they show up. Audience members are encouraged to explore and talk to strangers. Unlocked doors (or revolving bookshelves) should be entered.
