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).
Derren Brown: Secret is a brand-new production from the acclaimed British performer and author making his American theatrical debut at Atlantic Theater Company. Be part of the startling world of mind-reading, suggestion, and psychological illusion in Brown's hands. This spellbinding theatrical experience challenges audiences to take a closer look at the stories and beliefs that guide their lives.
Note: This show is not suitable for children under 12.
World famous for traditional flamenco, Cigala is now distinguished for his imagination and courage in exploring other musical traditions, such as salsa. The singer revisits the classic sound of '70s salsa, reinventing some of his hits with his soulful, inimitable flamenco touch. He will be joined by incredible musicians and voices of the salsa tradition, including Tito Allen, Johnny Rodriguez, Jorge Reinaldo, Jimmy Bosch, Ricky Gonzalez, and more. Don't miss this historic concert in which Cigala pays tribute to his tropical style, and introduces his new salsa talents. In addition to featured Puerto Rican musicians there are songs by Puerto Rican composer Tite Curet Alonso.
Finley's latest solo performance explores the recent heightened U.S. political presidential landscape, taking on citizenship, gender disparity and abuse of power. The individual price of public relationships at the price of privacy becomes divisive with searing psychosexual dynamics of wit and seething revelation. The performance explores magical beings, aggressive thankfulness, and collective intimacy through Shakespearean sudden trauma. This is an experimental nonlinear poetic text that creates a jolt of intuition, analysis and unnatural disaster of the human kind. Finley plays a unicorn, and morphs into a Hillary-like, Trump-like being while enveloping the blueness of the blue dress of Monica Lewinsky.
This one-man show is about brotherly love and the healing power of being able to say goodbye. Written and directed by Felix Rojas, Growing Up Gonzalez features Andres "Chulisi" Rodriguez as Johnny Gonzales, a Bronx native of Puerto Rican descent who is forced to clean out the apartment of his recently deceased younger brother, Cisco. In doing so, he discovers a treasure chest full of colorful, detailed personal notes left behind by Cisco. Pages and pages detail vibrant comic and tragic moments of the past. These innocent interpretations of love, life, and everything in between thrust Johnny into a magical journey of discovery and forgiveness in a pulsating and affectionate 1970s South Bronx.
This solo character show, written and performed by Eli James, is a decade-by-decade journey through the parade of unsung deplorables who inhabit the history of rock 'n' roll. Imagine All the People: A Survey of Music Business Creeps shines a light on the creeps, freaks, jackasses, and wannabes that have been steadily plopping out of pop music's bottom since the 1950s. In it, award-winning music historian Sir Gordon Gledhill-Walker guides audience members through each sordid era of rock, attempting to find answers to pop music's longest-lasting mysteries, such as "Were the Beatles more popular than Jesus?", "What is payola and where can I get it?", and "Why did the '90s happen?" Visits from con artists, Klansmen, and Morrissey are to be expected. It's all here when you imagine all the people!
A mysterious story is deciphered, and the illusion of one's own identity is revealed in the new show In & Of Itself. A modern allegory, In & Of Itself explores new ways of seeing the unseeable as memories from yesterday, inexplicable events witnessed today, and secrets imagined for tomorrow are blended together, creating a perpetual paradox of a show. Multi-Emmy Award winner Frank Oz directs Derek DelGaudio, who both created and performs this work.
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).

As a child growing up in a one-bedroom railroad apartment in Brooklyn, Marilyn Hausfeld loved to sing. She landed a spot on a weekly television show and a Nathan's Hot Dogs commercial, but she didn't truly take to the stage until after she'd seen her three kids off to school. She has appeared in many D.C.-area theaters in roles including Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, Stella Adler in Stella, Kate in Neil Simon's Broadway Bound and Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Esther in Richard Rashke's Dear Esther.
Now Marilyn tells her own story in an intimate one-woman cabaret show featuring 15 songs plus reflections on parenthood, marriage, and being a grandparent. Washington Women in Theatre chose Just Between Us as the only cabaret at the Women's Voices Theatre Festival.
Come spend a cosy evening with your very own Auntie Kate, who promises you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll gasp out loud as she speaks about the last 30 years of her life as a nonbinary identified queer trans dyke. This is an evening of her favorite heartwarming anecdotes, touching and sometimes-painful personal trials and tribulations, and inspiring tales of putting the world to rights. Her performance is at once deeply personal and universally acceptable, weaving together stand-up comedy, theatrical monologues, and heart-to-heart storytelling to convey the experience of her long, rich nonbinary trans life.
Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) schools his son — and the rest of us — on the buried history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny one-man show about uncovering the truth and recovering from the past.
Spurred by the near total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son's school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 90 irreverent, uncensored minutes in his trademark style.
Tony Taccone, Artistic Director of Berkeley Repertory Theatre, directs this incendiary new show from one the most provocatively hilarious satirists in American theater.
Before Edgar Oliver moved to the Lower East Side in 1977, he began his travels from Savannah roaming across England and France with his sister Helen. They lived in Paris studying baroque art and learning amazing facts: Alka-Seltzer may cure botulism; that wine providing Angel of the Trash Can's name was Poo-bella. After a mythic trek to Chartres across fields of wild flowers reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz, Edgar journeyed to London to study art at the Courtauld Institute. He lived in the White House Hotel and there encountered other revelations, amazing creatures and experiences that have shaped his life. London Paris is an intimate, fairy-tale conversation in a club setting which will illuminate the genesis of the man Edgar is today.
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor finds herself drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime — and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we're all part of the problem.

In Show Up, award-winning solo show performer, producer, and SOLOCOM creator Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit) uses his decades of solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified tropes of the genre on their head. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life experiences of the audience into a single vibrant life-story that is familiar, completely fresh, and unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to cue lights, design the set, and direct. Show Up provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this high wire, simultaneously commenting on social anxiety and performance challenges. Ultimately, Show Up demonstrates that the value of truth in autobiographical performance is totally subjective.
Time No Line is a performance work presented as a live memoir, based on John Kelly's 40 years of journaling. This solo piece constructs a nonlinear narrative through physical movement, video projections, music, historic texts, and live drawing. Its main theme is the way Kelly's life and work unfolded and intertwined with significant cultural and political events, including the East Village performance art scene of the 1980s, the AIDS epidemic, the culture wars, and gentrification. The show uses the experiences of an individual to create a shared collective experience as an antidote to cultural amnesia and erasure. Kelly himself is a survivor who remains a part of New York's evolving cultural landscape.
Turning Page is a sophisticated, funny, and deeply compelling solo show about legendary actress Geraldine Page, whose sparkling career earned her a record-breaking eight Academy Award nominations by her untimely death in 1987. Written and performed by her only daughter, Angelica Page, with direction by Tony-nominated Wilson Milam, this 90-minute evening of theater is a magical opportunity to personally encounter one of the most influential, celebrated, and private American artists of the 20th century.
Iyaba Ibo Mandingo, formerly Kenny Athel George DeCruise — painter, poet, husband, father, son, and undocumented immigrant from Antigua. At the age of 11, Iyaba is plucked from the tropical comfort of his boyhood and taken to life in America where he must navigate his way to manhood without the guidance of a father.
Using canvas, paint, poetry, prose, and song, Iyaba tells us a story of his transformation from "Mommy Me No Wanna Go Merrica" — a prophetic piece that hints at the many trials he will face in a new land — to his powerful political poetry that would lead to his arrest and attempted deportation in post 9/11 America. Throughout the play, Iyaba shares his rage, his determination, and his hope while he paints his self-portrait and successfully struggles to redefine his humanity, rediscover his smile, and truly accept himself for the first time.

From the wishful thinking of a young girl to the self-acceptance of the woman she becomes, join D'Vorah as she reflects on life in — and out — of show business, with some of her favorite songs from Broadway and beyond. From Hoagy Carmichael to Alan Menken, Rodgers and Hammerstein to Ahrens and Flaherty, D'Vorah will delight with her lilting soprano and infectious charm.
