Directed and choreographed by Austin McCormick, Company XIV's latest show reimagines Munro Leaf's classic children's tale "The Story of Ferdinand" as an erotic all-male baroque-burlesque spectacle. Soothe (or stoke) summer's sizzle with flirtation, opulence, and exquisite cocktails from the bar. Roll around the Spanish hillside and enjoy a bullfight in the XIV ring, where a ferocious, fertile matador challenges dear Ferdinand to a duel. Will Ferdinand rise to the occasion or succumb to the field of flowers?
More performances of Shakespeare than any other company in New York!
The stage is set at the Lounge, a hidden library on 47th Street and 8th Avenue with over 15,000 real books and craft cocktails. Five professional New York actors meet as members of "the Drunk Shakespeare Society." One of them has at least five shots of whiskey and then overconfidently attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespeare play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue as the four sober actors try and keep the script on track. Every show is different depending on who is drinking...and what is being drunk!
In this exploration of origin stories, the ancient canon, and the myth of Leda and the Swan, a searching, unruly ensemble of women, girls, men, and boys journey, lay eggs, question, turn into eggs, suffer, hatch from eggs, and rebel — to the awe and dismay of their Playwright, who is struggling to make sense of them, the world, and her own story, all spinning wildly out of control.

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.
Naked Boys Singing! consists of six adult males doing what the title declares. Whether exposing the anxiety of a high school locker room or revealing the joys of performing nude, the uninhibited singing of these "boys" celebrates the male anatomy with wit and explicitness. And not only do they perform in the buff; many are buff themselves. Each member of the cast performs a solo tune as well as in ensemble pieces. Get excited: Every penile synonym known to man is referenced in this show.
Trainspotting Live captures the passion and controversy of the generation-defining novel and globally successful film, repackaging them into a full-throttled stage show in which the audience is an integral part of the action, including the notorious "worst toilet in Scotland" scene.
Set against a dynamic soundscape of 1980s dance music, Trainspotting Live takes an insightful and brutally honest look at friends Mark Renton, Tommy, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Allison as they live and struggle through the Edinburgh heroin epidemic. This raw and gritty 75-minute stage experience offers a real-life look at the effects of addiction, with all its highs and lows, while bringing to life the classic novel and globally successful film with humor, poetry, and provocatively graphic staging.
A must-see for avid fans of the movie and for Trainspotting Live virgins, it provides a powerfully entertaining experience you won't soon forget! The 1996 British black comedy film Trainspotting was directed by Danny Boyle, starred Ewan McGregor, and quickly achieved iconic status on both sides of the Atlantic. It was the highest-grossing British film of 1996. A sequel, T2 Trainspotting, was released in 2017, again smashing box office records in the UK.
Note: This show is only recommended for audience members age 16 and over. Trainspotting Live contains nudity, strong language, violence, sexual material, and heavy drug and needle use.
