James Lecesne portrays every character in this play of a small Jersey shore town as they unravel the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant 14-year-old boy who goes missing. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he disappears, Leonard becomes the unexpected inspiration for a town as they question how they live, whom they love, and what they leave behind.
Tony Speciale directs, with original music by Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik.
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.

Inspired by Vega's own experience as an immigrant in New York City, The Duchamp Syndrome, which also features Omen Sade, tells the story of Juan, a solitary immigrant in The Big Apple, who dreams of stand-up comedy stardom. Juan is so lonely that he starts making friends, literally. An unusual assortment of fellow travelers, human and not, help him practice his routines and prepare for his mother's visit from Mexico (provided she can get a visa). He's got to impress. But is he being honest with her, and himself, about the new life he's making? The Duchamp Syndrome is a provocative love letter to New York, with guest appearances from a large cast of repurposed objects.
Cedric Jones returns to Don't Tell Mama NYC, singing the songs of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett and more! Featuring musicians Jason Laney and Josh Friedman.
Written and directed by Zimmerman, My Son the Waiter tells the story of how Zimmerman, now pushing 60, waited tables in New York for a mind-numbing 29 years, before finally taking himself seriously enough to study stand-up comedy, and write a one-man show about waiting until his mid-50s to perform on stage.
The Other Mozart is the true and untold story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus - a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history.
Created by Sylvia Milo, directed by Isaac Byrne, the monodrama is set in a stunning 18-foot dress (designed by Magdalena Dabrowska from the National Theater of Poland). The Other Mozart is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's humorous and heartbreaking letters.
This Is Mary Brown is the epic story of a simple life: in her solo play, Obie Award winner Winsome Brown channels her wickedly funny Irish mother, her Alaskan frontiersman father, and her engaging family to tell the story of a mother's life. With humor she applies a light touch that reveals Mary's struggles with aging and alcoholism, her war stories of a 45-year marriage with children, and the sad grace of her death.
The performance is a walk down memory lane for those who remember Sarah 'Sassy' Vaughan. And an enlightening experience for those just getting to know her. An exquisitely, beautiful tribute befitting one of the greatest voices of the 20th century…
