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.
Bobbie killed Casey in the middle of a cornfield in Milton, Nebraska. Two years later, Milton's residents are ready to tell you their side(s) of the story. This comedy-about-a-tragedy pushes the boundaries of Roundabout's Black Box Theatre with a sprawling cast of eccentric characters and an ambitious narrative that pulls back the husk of rural life. Bobbie Clearly is written by Nebraskan Alex Lubischer, a Yale School of Drama student discovered by Roundabout Underground.
Winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical!
From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, comes this hilarious Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. The Book of Mormon was written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, and is codirected by Parker and Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone).
Winner of the 2011 Tony Award for Best Musical, The Book of Mormon has certainly captured the hearts of many in the Broadway community by presenting modern, in-the-know, and often profane content in the tried-and-true form of a very traditional integrated book musical, complete with tap dancing.
A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over 60 years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen.
Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says, "Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns." In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns, starring Jeff Hiller (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), is written by Drew Droege (the internet's Chloë) and directed by Michael Urie (Ugly Betty).
In the aftermath of Liv's untimely death, her boyfriend Adam, her best friend Cat, and her sister Sally negotiate everything from a raucous wake to releasing her worldly goods to the Jewish Women's League.

Ending up in cupboards, on trains, and in the emptiest Indian restaurant in England, Butterside Down explores how the young are ill-equipped to lose each other. And whether, when you've lost the love of your life, your sense of humor can keep you alive.
Carolines on Broadway, the premiere comedy nightclub of New York City, presents the biggest stars of television, movies, and the national standup circuit seven nights a week.

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.

Nora is a hard-drinking musicologist whose colleague and lover is dragging his feet about leaving his beauty-queen wife. When Nora's hijinks land her at rock bottom, she goes on a quest for counsel from the only source she has left: her estranged, evangelical mom. Abby Rosebrock's Dido of Idaho is a horrifying comedy about love, despair, and maybe, eventually, hope.
Mashuq Mushtaq Deen's Draw the Circle is a hilarious, moving story told entirely from the point of view of family and friends performed by Deen himself. The work compassionately brings to life the frequently ignored struggle that a family goes through when their child transitions from one gender to another.
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!
One professional New York actor has at least five shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform in a Shakespeare play.
There is a hidden library on the second floor of a building on 43rd Street and Eighth Avenue. With over 15,000 books, the Drunk Shakespeare Society meets every night to drink...and perhaps do a little Shakespeare. A mysterious bartender serves cocktails through a 10-foot-high bookcase made entirely of black books. A hundred prized novels are forever buried in an amber fluid in front of a royal throne. Other easter eggs are hidden throughout the room...
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.
It's "Wakes Week" in Hindle; the mill is closed and the workers are idle. Fanny Hawthorn is relaxing at the seashore with a girlfriend when she runs into Alan Jeffcote, the mill owner's son. Alan takes Fanny to a hotel in Wales for a few days of fun, but the fun stops when their parents find out. Should Alan, already engaged to another woman, do the right thing and make an honest woman of Fanny? Or should he do the right thing and stand by his fiancée?
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 journey is accompanied by music — the a capella stylings of The Backwaiters — and craft cocktails. You can sit back, drink up, and enjoy as Anthony holds forth on the history and science behind alcoholic beverages, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, and, like any good bartender, keeps his guests laughing throughout the night.

An award-winning one-man show with actor Colin Hamell moving seamlessly among more than 20 different roles, Jimmy Titanic is a wholly original Titanic story set between the great ship and heaven. God is a Dublin gangster. The angel Gabriel is the plucky keeper of heaven's gates, and the Titanic's legacy isn't the first-class passengers but 700 crewmen who have attained stardom in the firmament. Jimmy, having gone down with the ship, now enjoys rock-star status, and boy, does he milk it, flirting with angels and rewriting history with a direct line to an unlikely God.

Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) returns to Broadway in this original one-man comedic play. In Latin History for Morons, Leguizamo schools his son — and the audience — on the buried history of Latinos in the Americas. Spurred by the near total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Hispanic hero for his son's school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown patriots of the American Revolution and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Maya and Ricky Ricardo into 95 irreverent, uncensored minutes in his trademark style.

Log Cabin takes place in a faraway age of hope and inclusivity — in other words, 2015. When a tight-knit circle of married gays and lesbians — comfy in the new mainstream — see themselves through the eyes of their rakish transgender pal, it's clear that the march toward progress is anything but unified. With stinging satire and acute compassion, Harrison's pointed comedy charts the breakdown of empathy that happens when we think our rights are secure, revealing hardened hearts where you'd least expect.
A con, a magician, and government decay...told in all rhyming underscored play.

Mark and Jason were keeping things casual until Jason got pregnant. But however unplanned the pregnancy was, nothing could be less expected than the chain of events it would set in motion.

Book your seats…and watch your back! Mean Girls is now a ferociously funny new musical from director Casey Nicholaw (Aladdin), composer Jeff Richmond (30 Rock), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), and book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock).
Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naive newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on the Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George, duh! But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a queen bee without getting stung.
Produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, Mean Girls gets to the hilarious heart of what it means to be a true friend, a worthy nemesis, and above all, a human being.

Instead, the two couples find themselves in a marital free-fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky.

An irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy, directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (Detroit), Our Lady of 121st Street paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard.
You're invited to a party that's full of surprises.

Laughter roars as their revelry leads to revelations in this new comedy starring Academy Award-winning actor Hayley Mills (The Parent Trap).
Despite the unnatural presence of a vicious yet smooth-talking tyrannosaur named Nero, Pete Rex is a deeply human story about depression and the choices a young man makes in a fruitless attempt to remain insulated from the fragility of life. But those very choices lead him directly into the jaws of mortal danger — danger for himself, for his loved ones, and for the world around him. An homage to late-night creature features, Pete Rex is part comedy, part absurdism, and part horror.
Winner of a 2017 Tony Award!

A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender — a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: An upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made?
Women's Project Theater teams up with the Bushwick Starr and New Georges to present the off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [Porto] written by Kate Benson and directed by Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP Theater in 2015.
For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain wizard school and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs...who just happened to be there too. Puffs; or, Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. This clever and inventive play gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. Their epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
Note: Puffs matinees are fun for the whole family! On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, the show has been lightly transfigured so that wizards ages eight and up can share in the magic of Puffs, and parents can relax knowing their kids won't learn any new curses. Evening shows, which include some adult language, are appropriate for ages 13 and up.
