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.

What is failure, and how do we deal with it – as individuals, and as communities? In the new installation-performance, choreographer and visual artist Laura Peterson uses the language of dance and sculptural design to probe the national consciousness in the aftermath of 2016 Presidential election. Peterson zeroes in on the overwhelming pressure to compete, which is at the heart of the American way of life. Is a small defeat less devastating than a colossal mistake? What is the real outcome of the "winner takes all?"
Ghost Light is a performance about performance that invites audiences to follow performers into the unseen corners of the Claire Tow Theater and through a series of real and dreamlike landscapes beyond the footlights, the glitter, and the greasepaint.

The writer and producers of Nothing to Hide reunite with executive producer Neil Patrick Harris to present this theatrical experience directed by Frank Oz.

In 1965, Life magazine published an astonishing photo essay of two New York City junkies, John and Karen, shot by iconic photojournalist Bill Eppridge. These pictures, the most controversial that Life had ever published, shocked readers by bringing the grim reality of addiction into the American living room. Inspired by these photographs, LIT's creative director Carlo D'Amore explores the potential immersive theater has as a tool for empathic connection. With Live In Theater, these photographs will now come alive.
The infamous "Needle Park" is the backdrop for an interactive journey where 14 participants are immersed in the world of John and Karen.
