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!
• Award-winning run in Buenos Aires, Argentina!
• Winner of a 2013 Best Comedy Award in Panama City, Panama!
When 23-year-old performer Walker Vreeland took a job as a lead singer for Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2003, he could never have imagined the voyage that lay ahead. Boarding the Bermuda-bound ship would precipitate a mental breakdown so severe, he would wind up months later at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Mood Disorder Psychiatric Ward. From Ship to Shape is a tragicomic autobiographical monologue about one young man's struggle with mental illness in today's world.
#IamSueCostello is Sue Costello's life story that she has been writing for 20 years. It was inspired after her TV show —Costello on Fox — got cancelled. She read an article in the New York Times that said that poor kids hear fewer words than rich kids. Costello thought, "I'm not going to stop telling my story, no matter how many words I have or how many obstacles I have to overcome." The result is a play that connects the dots in a journey to a girl returning to her authentic self.
Costello, though best known as a comedian, created and performs this play solo but with extraordinary range. She plays herself at different periods in her life and converses with real-life characters the audience can't see but whose presence is as real and riveting as hers. What's especially striking about #IamSueCostello is that it isn't simply a monologue about Costello's life or a series of quick impressions, but a part-comedic performance, part-raw emotional saga.
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).
Step into the kitchen. The onions are cooking on the stove and meat is on the cutting board waiting to be chopped. Our host is preparing kubah, a traditional Syrian dish. While she cooks, she tells us the story of meeting Ashraf, a Syrian exile, and falling in love with him as he desperately tries to help those he was forced to leave behind. When he vanishes, she impulsively trails him to her homeland — one she has never known, now consumed by war. As the meal comes together and then falls apart, we learn the stories of brutality, grace, and humanity of those she witnessed along the way.
A candle that moves water, a paper cup that won't burn, a firefly without fire. An atomic flash, weaponized sugar, a hydrogen bomb. A genie in a bottle, secret writing, elephant toothpaste...yes! All these and more constitute That Chemistry Show, 80 minutes of incredible exploration led by longtime "mad scientist" Borislaw Bilash. Expect amazement and lots of laughter as Borislaw combines the world of chemistry and the world of show business.
