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.

"Hilarious," "Intelligent," "Provocative," "Scorching" all describe Robert Dubac's new solo show The Book of Moron! Combining theater with stand-up Dubac buckles us up for a fast-paced joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy. Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity he crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. And he's not alone. With mesmerizing ease, he portrays multiple characters who all take turns beating the hornet's nest of hype and spin with the big stick of knowledge. It's comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?
Playwright Oscar Speace and his brother –- the sons of an American GI and his Romanian wife, Janka – enjoyed a normal life growing up in New Jersey in the 50's and 60's, unaware that their mother kept her own devastating family history in the dark. Not until after her death did they learn the existence of a 60-page handwritten letter Janka had sent to her uncle about the atrocities she and her Romanian Jewish family endured at the hands of the Nazis during the Second World War. All the more astonishing, Janka wrote the letter mere months after her own liberation from the camps, but chose never to speak of it again in her lifetime.
Hilarious' is the only way to describe The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron. In the show Robert Dubac embarks on a different mission. This time he's in pursuit of the holy grail of male/female relationships. The answer to the age old question, "What do women want?" And with help of five bonehead chauvinists and his feminine side he miraculously comes up with the answer. All while drinking a beer. It's 80 minutes of riotous comedy and misguided advice on the never-ending babble of the sexes.
Mono a Mono is a solo performance salon where two provocative solo performances with interconnected social themes are performed back to back, in dialogue with each other. Afterwards, the audience is invited into the conversation in a guided discussion with the artists.
Premiering a new piece, performance artist and monologist Melissa Shaw explores New York, death, the new age movement, childhood and the unbearable lightness of not being a millennial.
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.
With the opulent beauty of the dress, the sweet smell of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, The Other Mozart is a multi-sensual experience that transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight -- but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice, where, this other Mozart at last tells her story.
Legendary performer and political activist Paul Robeson is celebrated in song and story by Daniel Beaty (Emergency, The Public Theater) in this bravura solo play, directed by Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project Cycle, 2013 Winter/Spring). Seamlessly incorporating photos, audio, and video footage, The Tallest Tree in the Forest captures Robeson's multifaceted history—from football heroics, to triumphs on Broadway and London's West End, to radical politics and McCarthy-era defiance. With unflagging energy and incisiveness—and performing a stunning rendition of "Ol' Man River"—Beaty sheds light on one of the 20th century's most dynamic lives.
