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.
A swinging, rip-roaring musical tribute to the black musicians of the Harlem Renaissance, Ain't Misbehavin' opened on Broadway in 1978 as a musical revue of jazz legend Fats Waller's popular songbook, was nominated for numerous awards, and won the 1978 Tony for Best Musical.
Balé Folclórico da Bahia, the only professional folk dance company in Brazil, was formed in 1988 by Walson Botelho and Ninho Reis. Based in Salvador in the northern state of Bahia, and under the leadership of artistic director José Carlos Arandiba, the 32-member troupe of dancers, musicians, and singers performs a repertory that originates from Bahian folkloric dances of African origin and includes slave dances, capoeira, samba, and those that celebrate Carnival. The company highlights the region's culture within a contemporary theatrical vision.
Balé Folclórico da Bahia made its European debut in 1992 when it participated in Berlin's Alexander Platz International Festival and drew an audience of 50,000. Its U.S. debut tour was in 1995-96, and it has since performed in 88 U.S. cities.
Abigail Rockwell, granddaughter of the American illustrator, Norman Rockwell, continues her NYC jazz debut at the Metropolitan.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a new play adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Debra Lee Failla directs this version of the classic tale of depravity, lust, love, and horror. Hatcher's reimagining of Stevenson's 19th-century novella offers a haunting examination of the duality of man, challenging our notions of good and evil. This production features original music.
Harmony is an audio documentary and sound sculpture enhanced with visual/movement elements, featuring the collective consciousness of voices around the globe. It was first conceived as a response to China's extreme enforcement of Internet surveillance and people's silent protest using puns and metaphors. Over the past year we've collected 46 individuals' responses on a set of questions, who shared their takes on the world's current state, their interpretations on some of the most universal yet polarizing concepts, as well as the vulnerabilities we share as a race. Harmony is set to be a living, growing, and evolving organ that would pick up whatever's happening in the moment. In this instalment, our presentation will feature live responses in DC at the women's march and the aftermath of the 2017 inauguration.
When a famous psychologist and author calls a temp agency for an apprentice, the perfect candidate appears at his door. Witty, studious, and eager to please, Matt Sinclair quickly makes an impression with Dr. Eugene Harper. All is not as it appears, however, and what starts as an interview quickly turns sinister as the author's true motives are revealed. Interview tells the story of a psychologist, a criminal defendant, and a legal system that stops at nothing to gain an alleged killer's confession…even if it means driving the accused to the brink of insanity.
Love in Salsa is a special concert featuring a romantic lineup of Maelo Ruiz ("El cantante del amor"), Tito Rojas ("Sensual"), Giro Lopez ("Amor Lunatico"), and Nino Segarra ("Enamorado").

Ready or Not Here I Come is a story about the choices that we make and the consequences of those choices. This play is about the rapture of Christ — and a lot more.
Ms. Jenkins is the nosy neighbor who knows everything about everybody. She takes the audience into the personal lives of three families. Audience members witness those families either accepting or rejecting Christ.
Ready or Not Here I Come includes music, singing, praise dancing, and a couple surprises. Audience members may laugh and cry, but above all, they will think.
Real Talk / Kip Talk is a series of live talk shows about the state of contemporary performance in New York City. The host is Kippy Winston, media mogul, internet sensation, and citizen of the world. Since Kippy's weblog took flight in 2008, her larger-than-life persona and cottage industry empire has grown to encompass Kippy Winston Media, a boutique public relations firm servicing all things theatrical; The Radish, a semi-autumnal gossip rag; Just Ask Kippy, a brief yet potent advice column; and an active social media presence. Formatted like a talk show but with room for debate, Real Talk / Kip Talk blurs the line between art and life and challenges participants of all stripes and creeds to engage in real talk about our starry performance landscape.
Broken Box Mime Theater's new production See Reverse is made up of ten provocative and sophisticated-yet-accessible short plays. They are strung together by theme and technique: Without the use of props, sets, costumes, or words, their narratives unfold through body movements only. The material ranges from film noir to political protest to twisted fable to absurdist drama.
Recently honored with two New York Innovative Theatre Awards for Outstanding Performance Art and Choreography/Movement, this production is led by artistic director Becky Baumwoll.
Time No Line is a performance work presented as a live memoir, based on John Kelly's 40 years of journaling. This solo piece constructs a nonlinear narrative through physical movement, video projections, music, historic texts, and live drawing. Its main theme is the way Kelly's life and work unfolded and intertwined with significant cultural and political events, including the East Village performance art scene of the 1980s, the AIDS epidemic, the culture wars, and gentrification. The show uses the experiences of an individual to create a shared collective experience as an antidote to cultural amnesia and erasure. Kelly himself is a survivor who remains a part of New York's evolving cultural landscape.
