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.

The Hummm explores the soundscape of Chekhov's Three Sisters and selected short stories. Based on the belief that vibration carries meaning, the piece uses sound as the driving force to unpack the subtlety and musicality of Chekhov's most lonely women.
Featuring four actresses, the show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where all the military men have died and only the women remain. Humming, whining, whispering, clamoring — this show wraps the audience in a 'Chekhovian polyphony,' where the chords are made of ecstasy, anguish, and perpetual disillusion. Incorporating a wide range of music and media, featuring a live DJ, and intensified by stylistic choreography, The Hummm creates an unprecedented aural and visual experience of the Three Sisters.

Now, he is inviting audiences into his own living room on the NY stage, bringing them "Stove Top Folk" – his unique blend of songs accompanied by variety of whimsical instruments, stories, and underwater levitation.

If a modern day fairy tale is a dream come true, then whose dream does it belong to and at what cost? Four actors set out to wrestle to the stage the true story of American Dad, Jeremiah Heaton, who planted a flag in the African desert to make his daughter a real Princess. They attempt to expose this modern day fairy tale's roots in systemic racism and white privilege. What follows is an outrageous, inappropriate and sometimes painful confrontation with their own bias as they take the journey to a new story.
Ready Or Not Here I Come is a story about the choices that we make and the consequences of those choices. We can easily say that this play is about the rapture, but its alot more to it. It is more about what leads up to the rapture and what happens after the rapture.
