50th & 4th follows Rick and Sue, a married couple in Brooklyn, as they rent their spare bedroom online. Inspired by Lemme's first roommates in New York, 50th & 4th is a tribute to everyone who brought you to the city and the new kind of family you create when you're here. The play features Gloria Lamoureux (Perry Award winner), Emil Ferzola and Kirsten Dwyer. Tara Cioletti (Perry Award winner) directs.
New York City's finest improvisers join forces with the city's finest poets in a unique format: part comedy, part poetry, part theater, part UNPREDICTABILITY. It all begins with an exquisite corpse (aka poem) written collaboratively by the audience. After that the improvisers delve in, building a world around the themes and imagery of the poem, populating it with a cast of characters who are funny, tragic, and in between. Fueling the proceedings is the work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the world. (Among the cast are performers and poets featured on This American Life, the Onion, and Chicago's Second City.) The whole shebang ends with the performance of a poem inspired by the show and written on the spot.
After 21 years as an honorary Jewish person and 10+ years as a neurotic New Yorker, Woody Fu discovered he is Asian and has emotions. Join him on this special night as he finally becomes a man. L'Chaim!
Asian Gracefully is a one-man show about growing up not white, tackling such delightful topics as internecine racism, how Asian men don't exist in porn, and why Koreans put an egg on all their food. It's gone up at the UCB, PIT, and Magnet in New York, and toured nationally.
Woody is a comedic actor-writer, and has performed with Baby Wants Candy and at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam.
Austin Pendleton and June Daniel White star in an original, offbeat comedy about God, a woman, and love.
Humans have had many imagined conversations with God. This is the conversation God was waiting to have. He was waiting for Delta — a feisty, big-hearted woman who has a lot to teach the Almighty.
Their conversation is an adventure in 1 hour and 45 minutes, no intermission, so fasten your seat belts and join the ride.
World premiere of this darkly romantic comedy starts January 25 until February 10 at Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios.
Okay campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties because this February, Drunk Restoration Comedy is getting a little loopy with a reading of A Day of Groundhog! A hilarious Shakespearean adaptation from Robert Price of the cult classic Groundhog Day, come find out if Punxsutawney Phil will ever see his shadow on Friday, February 2, at 10pm at the Players Theatre in the West Village! The premise of Drunk Restoration Comedy: Our team of brave (or just crazy?) actors, comedians, and improvisers will perform a reading of a classical piece of theater. The catch: They'll be doing so while heavily under the influence. Even better, this interactive evening will give audience members a chance to choose their own adventure and dictate which performers get totally sloshed and which are sent packing. Anything could happen; come find out what does!
The cast of Eight Is Never Enough delivers hilarious comedy improvised on the spot based on audience suggestions and participation. Every show is topical and customized to you. Think Whose Line Is It Anyway? meets Broadway.
Obnoxious strangers, overbearing bosses, and unrequited high school crushes are about to get a piece of your mind. The Friday Night Sh*w invites audience members to anonymously write down their repressed rants, cursing-outs, and sultry confessions. Improv performers then use that writing to fuel a fast-paced brawl of hilarity. The cast includes a fistful of New York City's best improvisers with credits on 30 Rock, Comedy Central, MTV, Chicago's Second City, the Onion, and NPR — and at least one Primetime Emmy Award loser.
I Love New York explores modern anxiety and the quest for external validation by juxtaposing material from TripAdvisor.com and Ellis Island immigrant interviews. Laughs are followed by questions: "Am I that revealing online?" "Is my anxiety that high?" "Is the fact that I've forgotten the question and am questioning my anxiety proof I have anxiety?" I Love New York gives Americans from all over the country and immigrants from all around the world the opportunity to tell you what the American Dream looks like for them.
The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or a song; all are truthful and tackle the here-and-now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers. With new plays every week, The Infinite Wrench is the Neo-Futurists' ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to audiences, including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.
Each week, the Magnet Theater's resident ensembles converge for a night of improv comedy. The night might include anything from monoscenes to Harolds (long-form improv acts that begin with a suggestion from the audience). Because Megawatt's format gets changed more frequently than a lightbulb, returning audience members can expect to be dazzled every time.
The year is 2006, and there's been a big shake-up in the Milky Way: Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet!
When news of its demotion reaches the small planetoid, Pluto leaves the solar system on a cosmic journey, meeting groovy satellites, fun-loving gas giants, and a galaxy of other celestial oddballs on its quest to become a planet again.
Chris Mann and Emily Duncan's Pluto Is Missing! is a family-friendly space comedy that blends music, puppets, and fantasy with real science and space exploration history. You'll leave the theater with your head full of catchy songs and astronomical knowledge!
Rosemary and Time, based on a true story, is about two women working side by side in a school infirmary who discover a startling truth about one another. Set in Yorkshire, England, in the late 1970s, with flashbacks to 1941, the two women unearth secrets from the past and come to terms with ghosts, old relationships, and time.
Saturday at 6pm: the perfect time to get your jaded mind blown by four improv ensembles. Will the neighborhood kids be driven wild by their new forms and structures? Yes. Will you?
The Rundown features different groups at each performance that unite veteran performers with up-and-comers ready to bring it.

Nick Kanellis and Peter McNerney (Statues of Liberty) team up with Magnet Theater veteran Leslie Korein to form a brand-new improv trio with one purpose: rockin' a seamless, high-energy, character-driven, free-form improv set every week.
A comedy of honor, Ana Caro's 17th-century play criticizes the social customs of her era, notably the position of women, in a parody of the erotic myth of Don Juan. The play is considered especially remarkable because of its uncommon depiction of its heroine, Leonor, in a storyline whose happy ending finds a woman having solved her own misfortune without the help of a man.
Note: The play is performed in Spanish with English subtitles via Simultext In-Seat Captioning System.
A solo play addressing the issues of poverty, racism, violence, and the need for positive transformation.
