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.

Solitaire follows the lives of Jordan and Christy who each live with depression and how it affects their lives as well as those who love them. While living in darkness, Solitaire also offers suggestion for finding the light at the end of the tunnel.
A devised work, Solitaire explores depression through the metaphor of the classic card game Solitaire. Using the devising method by Justin M. Schlabach, the story is created organically through collaboration between the cast and director without a script. The process begins with the artists bringing source material that inspire them regarding the premise as well as personal experiences. Using improvisation exercises, the director draws out theatrical ways to present the source material and research.
The Trevor Project will be given 20% of ticket sales as a donation. (Justin M. Schlabach and Solitaire: An Original Play are not affiliated with The Trevor Project)

'A Rumble in (the remains of) the Colonial Jungle.' In the carnal corner - a scrimmage of passion: a man, a woman, another man. In the heritage corner - elders versus their young. A bare-knuckled poem of love to three disputed motherlands.
The Waste Land is the collaboration between painter, actor and poet. Eliot's famous 1922 poem is interwoven into this performance/installation, where a table, two chairs, an actor and a puppet conjure a world that seems both strangely distant and eerily familiar.
