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.

Repurposing the Russian blogosphere's sneering nickname for a perverted Europe, Gayropa centers on the effort to obtain recognition of a glittering new nation whose population will consist of all the world's LGBT people. Yet what is intended as a way to protect those facing oppression and violence soon inspires a slew of competing visions for the country. Giving voice to Russian activists, marriage enthusiasts, politically-minded show queens, and young people struggling for survival, Gayropa is about building a global community that defies borders.

Thanks to new technologies, artists can now make 3D films and play them like melodic, texture-based visual instruments in real time, performing in duets with acoustic musicians. A new genre of collaborative performance is in the making, as demonstrated in Minimus 3D Arkestra, a visual-sonic concert by Ikuo Nakamura (film) and Hayes Greenfield (sax/voice/effects rig).
The Exhibition by Thomas Gibbons
Unlike the current and known productions of The Elephant Man, The Exhibition takes a more personal look at the relationship between Sir Frederick Treves and his most famous patient, The Elephant Man "John" Merrick. This unique production is based on Sir Frederick Treves personal journal. Tormented by his inner psyche, Treves asks the question, did he really help Merrick or continue to put him on exhibition?
Flowers for Algernon
by David Rogers In 1966, author Daniel Keyes published the controversial novel Flowers for Algernon. In this one act adaptation, audiences follow Charlie Gordon, a 32 year old intellectually disabled man, the first human test subject for a surgery designed to boost his intelligence.
Two guys, both named Michael, spend a rainy Saturday night lying on the floor of an empty apartment reading comic books – and testing the limits of their brand new friendship. Their own secret histories and future hopes begin to surface through conversations about the Omega Kids, a ragtag group of super-powered teens, and all of the reboots and retcons, apocalypses and alternate universes from all their years in print. It's a play about telling other people's stories in order to tell your own, and what happens when the barrier between fiction and reality starts to blur.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet exquisitely pleads for similar and neighboring peoples to stop killing each other for reasons they no longer remember. In The Drilling Company's production for Bryant Park Shakespeare the play will be set in a modern city which is divided by wealth and class. Directed by David Marantz, it aims to send a clear message about the violence that can result from social division and corporate greed.
In Marantz's "contemporary" version of Verona, the city is dominated by religion and divided between rich and poor. Everybody carries weapons openly, which leads to fighting on the streets. Capulet industries, run by Juliet's wealthy, conservative family, is running the town. Romeo hails from a different wealthy family that funds social activism; they run the Montague Center for Social Justice. Class conflict has created a modern dystopia from which the two lovers want to flee.
