Called "hilarious" (Broadway World) and "engaging" (TheaterMania), The Accidental Pervert is a laugh-out-loud play that tells the awkwardly poignant story of a boy's journey into manhood after discovering his dad's video tapes hidden in a bedroom closet. Andrew subsequently develops an addiction that continues until the age of 26, when he meets his wife to be, and finds himself struggling to find the balance between fantasy and reality.

In 400 years of Shakespeare, there's never been a night of Bard on the boards quite like Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet as Performed by David Carl.
As Shakespearean actor, puppeteer, singer and action-movie director, Gary Busey (played by New York actor-writer David Carl) performs each scene of Hamlet his way, with occasional detours into great Busey moments from Buddy Holly and Lethal Weapon. The heady mix of high and low-brow comedy celebrates Shakespeare's classic by using it to reflect upon the jaded, celebrity-crazed, meme-obsessed world around us.
Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet won the Outstanding Solo Performance Award at the New York Fringe in 2014, and received 5-star reviews at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

skinny crazy small is the chronicle of one quirky and strong-willed girl's battle with anorexia nervosa. Enlisting the help of famous women throughout history, all of whom suffered from either anorexia or bulimia themselves, the play's young protagonist challenges the stigmas and stereotypes that surround eating disorders.
Inspired by events in the life of creator and performer Sylvie Mae Baldwin, "skinny crazy small" sparks discussion and transports audience members unfamiliar with the disease to anorexia's frontlines.

All performances will be followed by a post-play discussion.
