1776, A Fresh Start is a multidisciplinary theatrical performance with sounds, sights, movements, and rhythms, clamoring in a dystopian future where America has lost its ascendance to Russia, India, and China. When depersonalized American workers plan a rebellion, a memory-erased janitor must make a fateful decision amidst global capitalism gone feral.
Amateur Night at the Apollo is live entertainment with a history. This weekly talent competition began in 1934 and within months became a leading showcase for emerging performers. Among its early winners was a 15-year-old Ella Fitzgerald. Since then the series has launched the careers of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
Today Amateur Night attracts performers and audiences from around the world. Audience members, known for their toughness and expectation that contestants "be good or be gone," gleefully choose the winners.
All over America in 2018 women's voices are finally being heard en masse; in the mainstream media, the internet, on TV, movies, and in politics. Musical theater, however? Not so much. Join us as we celebrate women's voices and the stories they tell at our brand-new female-forward new-works concert Anything You Can Do (A Night of Something Better)!
With performances by: Daisy Hobbs (Aladdin original Broadway cast, Memphis original Broadway tour), Chelsea Williams (In Transit and Mamma Mia! on Broadway), Kim Shriver (A Chorus Line Broadway revival, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels first national tour), Gina Milo (Sweeney Todd on Broadway), and many more! Plus an ode to the new work by the composer of the frighteningly accurate viral video The Tinder Opera, Mr. Scott Joiner.
BAMcafé Live is a free weekly performance series, featuring a mix of live music in a bar and lounge space. Performances span jazz, R&B, Afro-pop, Latin, rock, experimental music, and spoken-word poetry. Duncan Sheik, Billy Martin, Survival Soundz, Tracie Morris, and Carl Hancock Rux are among the series' alums.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
A new sci-fi musical comedy about the end of the world in — where else — a basement in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Chronicling the fabled New Brunswick basement music scene during the apocalypse, this new show, which had its premiere as part of New York Winterfest back in January, includes a New Brunswick basement rocker, the rising star astrophysicist he used to date, a committed performer from Medieval Times, a giant snake, cannibals, a group of mole people, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The end of the world is about 12 hours away.
The Eleventh Hour swept the 2018 New York Winterfest with seven awards: Best Production, Best Score, Most Creative Play, Best Director, Best Choreography, Best Lighting Design, and Best Singer.
Shake and Bake: Love's Labour's Lost is a production of Shakespeare's comedy, but with a twist. The show combines theater and food in a full-sensory experience: audience members are served an eight-course tasting menu (with wine pairings), with all the food prepared in front of them throughout the performance.
In Love's Labour's Lost, the ailing King of France owes the King of Navarre money. Unable to make the trip himself, the French king has his daughter go to negotiate the settlement. But just before she and her ladies (Rosaline and Maria) arrive, Navarre and his men (Berowne and Longaville) make a pact to swear off women, eat only six meals per week, and sleep three hours per night. Why? So that they can devote the rest of their time to study, obviously. When the women arrive ,the men are exhausted, hungry, and lonely. Nevertheless, Navarre sticks to the plan and tells the women that they may not enter the gates and must instead camp in the field. The women, having none of it, hatch a plan to outsmart the men.

Discover the secrets of your favorite neighborhood or museum on a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt. You won't be collecting objects (put back that statue!) but searching for answers to tricky and humorous questions. You can decipher a message in the sky in Central Park, find out what to do with a "fun goon" in Chinatown, track ghosts in Greenwich Village, solve a murder mystery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and much more. No knowledge of any hunt location is required — you just need a sharp mind and a good pair of shoes.
