New York's finest improvisers join forces with New York's finest poets in a unique format that is part comedy show, part poetry feature and completely unpredictable.
It all begins with an exquisite corpse written collaboratively, line-by-line by the audience beforehand. The improvisers then delve in, building an entire world around the themes and imagery of the poem and inhabiting it with a cast of characters that are wildly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, and everything in between.
Along the way, the show is fueled by the amazing work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the country and across the globe, shaking the rafters and rousing souls with original poetry that is raw, personal and profound.
The whole show ends with the performance of a brand new poem written on the spot and inspired by the entire show. It's comedy, it's poetry, it's theater and art. It is everything you came to this New York to see.
The cast includes performers and poets with credits from This American Life, NPR, The Onion, The Second City, The Truth Podcast, Reductress and Story Pirates.

Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. The story uses the American foster care/adoption, child welfare, and adult judicial system as a backdrop to tell the rags to riches, demise, and redemption of a fictional world famous dancer and choreographer. Through a series of interviews both spoken and acted out, we explore the main character's life from his humble beginnings as an orphaned child born in the state of California, to his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the "House Of Le Blanc", to his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer, to his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and criminal on death row for murder. The stories of his life are woven together by exploring his most defining relationships.

Rooted in the melting pot tradition of Jazz, the Valentine Quintet is anything but traditional. Combining the influences of the five continents the members hail from, Valentine writes and sings music that needs no language to explain its fire. She lets all members speak, the ones channeling eastern melodies, latin rhythms, straight ahead jazz and rock, and, through her classical background, she conducts them into perfect counterpoint.
Two men batter but don't draw blood. Two women weep but their faces stay dry. What happens when emotions are enacted not experienced? What makes the fake?
James and Jess are in a relationship. They both cry. She hits things more than he does, but he used to be a well-honed instrument of death. Jess found violence and rage in ballet, keening, orgone therapy. James searched for compassion in martial arts, street fighting, Mongolian wrestling. Apart, they asked four performers what it means to fight as men, to cry as women. Together, they've built a two-ring circus of gendered pain welling up with Sweat & Tears, two alchemies of salt and water, two body responses to the difficult work of feeling.
