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 videotapes hidden in a bedroom closet. The boy 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.
Let acclaimed performer and comedian Andrew Goffman take you on a whirlwind tour of his funny romance with magazines, videos, and off-color fantasies while you roll in the aisles. However, it's not all laughs in this layered show, which ends on a touching moment of redemption as he struggles to find true love and perspective through real-life relationships.
So come have some good dirty fun with The Accidental Pervert! Oh, and leave the little ones home. The show has mature themes and is meant for audience members over 16.
• The Accidental Pervert has eclipsed 1,000 performances in the legendary Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York!

Amy Surratt's First and Last (Show) celebrates the struggle to come back to something you never really had. This first and final bio-mythography is told by the fictionally famous "Amy Surratt," a former reality TV child star, as she gives her debut theatrical swan song. Surratt's own genuine Appalachian roots emerge through the joining of poetic narrative, cultural pageantry, true stories, and good ol' down-home lying. Beauty pageants, burnouts, and unfinished business combine in this tragicomic exploration of fractured identities and origins. Don't worry, though — there are enough mason jars, bluegrass jams, rusted cars, and Southern-fried metatheatrics for everyone.
Ben Rimalower brings back his acclaimed long-running solo plays, Patti Issues (about his obsession with Broadway diva Patti LuPone and his relationship with his troubled gay father) and Bad With Money (about how an addiction to spending beyond his means has driven him to extreme lengths all his life).
Come join Becca, under the direction of Gretchen Reinhagen and the music direction of Tracy Stark, as she explores how music helped her find her own voice. The show features songs from the Great American Songbook, modern musical theater, and popular music.
In this wacky one-woman show, the box doors open to reveal a drunken couple in Las Vegas, a lonely giantess, the entire Greek army inside the Trojan horse, a lost pope, and so much more! The space is limited, but the comedic possibilities are endless…
Kevin Spacey stars in Clarence Darrow, an acclaimed solo show written by David W. Rintels and directed by Thea Sharrock. First presented at the Old Vic Theater in London, it now comes to New York for a unique two-night event at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Spacey first came across the play Clarence Darrow when he was in high school. The one-man show made its Broadway premiere at the Helen Hays Theatre in 1974. The real Clarence Darrow was a courageous man at the turn of the nineteenth century. He was a lawyer who steadfastly accepted cases nobody would take, fighting on behalf of the underdog and standing up for labor unions as well as being a staunch opponent of the death penalty during a career that spanned over 40 years. Through his dignity, intelligence, and logic, he often managed to convince judges and jurors to change their view, shift their prejudice, and opt for a humane punishment on behalf of those he defended. Spacey brings Darrow to life over the course of 90 minutes in which Darrow, with his legendary wit, relives some of his extraordinary experiences and infamous trials that established his reputation as a courtroom giant and civil rights hero.

Note: This show is not suitable for children under 12.
A story reveals the illusion of one's identity in Derek DelGaudio's modern allegory, In & Of Itself. New ways of seeing the unseeable are explored, as memories from yesterday, inexplicable events witnessed today, and secrets imagined for tomorrow all blend together, creating a perpetual paradox of a show. The writer and producers of Nothing to Hide reunite with executive producer Neil Patrick Harris to present this theatrical experience directed by Frank Oz.
The Tony Award-winning author, performer, and activist Eve Ensler, whose Vagina Monologues is an international sensation, comes to Manhattan Theatre Club with a powerful new play based on her critically acclaimed memoir. While working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis. Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler's personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. Directing this bold, unflinching, and inspiring piece is Tony winner Diane Paulus (Waitress).
On One Condition draws on stories from Dan Daw's experiences as a man living with cerebral palsy. It asks viewers to question their own perceptions of normal while offering a stripped-back look at the world we live in.
