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.
Three volunteers — Sol, Sorcha, and Tallulah — are on their way to Mars and doomed to die. Inspired by the Mars One mission, which will send humans to settle a colony on the red planet, Astronauts Wanted is a deeply poetic nonlinear narrative that questions the very essence of what it means to be human.
A man and a woman speak in their own voices, as well as in the imagined thoughts of the other, even ventriloquizing each other till the almost bare stage seems populated with voices. A tale without caution, caught in several acts. Gender and power shift and subvert.

Come in, come in! Enter into the spectral shadows of St. John's Sanctuary, which has sat quietly for 190 years in the heart of the historic Greenwich Village. But now...lit by flickering candlelight and bathed in ghostly mist, the players at the award-winning, critically acclaimed Radiotheatre hope to chill the marrow in your bones as they present their annual Edgar Allen Poe Festival! This year they will not only perform some of Poe's classics but will also present works by "the children of Poe"...authors such as Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and others inspired by Poe. As usual, every Radiotheatre production comes complete with stellar storytellers, original orchestral scores, and a plethora of sound effects!

Finley's latest solo performance explores the recent heightened U.S. political presidential landscape, taking on citizenship, gender disparity and abuse of power. The individual price of public relationships at the price of privacy becomes divisive with searing psychosexual dynamics of wit and seething revelation. The performance explores magical beings, aggressive thankfulness, and collective intimacy through Shakespearean sudden trauma. This is an experimental nonlinear poetic text that creates a jolt of intuition, analysis and unnatural disaster of the human kind. Finley plays a unicorn, and morphs into a Hillary-like, Trump-like being while enveloping the blueness of the blue dress of Monica Lewinsky.
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.
Godzilla's messy alcohol-fueled breakups with other Kaiju are the stuff of legend. Now the hulking and foreboding Godzilla, a bi-poly serial dater fighting body dysmorphic disorder, looms over a helpless New York City.
While fleeing Godzilla's rampage, a man ducks under some rubble…only to notice every other person near Godzilla is someone he dated. It seems that his extraordinary exes have joined forces to take on the monstrous Godzilla. Amid this fantasia of carnage, the peril of dating is revealed to be a monster that not even Godzilla can defeat.
A story reveals the illusion of one's identity in Derek DelGaudio's modern allegory, In & Of Itself. New ways of seeing the unseeable are explored, as memories from yesterday, inexplicable events witnessed today, and secrets imagined for tomorrow all blend together, creating a perpetual paradox of a show. The writer and producers of Nothing to Hide reunite with executive producer Neil Patrick Harris to present this theatrical experience directed by Frank Oz.

Rooms is a series of short works, each lasting approximately 15 minutes. The pieces are presented as installations in a rugged former tire repair shop. Each individual room is contained within a 15' x 15' white cube. Audiences of six people at a time are invited to step inside and explore these spaces for two minutes before the recorded audio, through which a character is introduced and a short story is told, begins. In "Room 303," set within the musty bedroom of an old seaside boarding house, an old man voiced by Niall Buggy lies alone, waiting, as his time nears an end. "A Girl's Bedroom" features the voice of Charlie Murphy as a six-year-old girl who leaves her bedroom and family home and walks, never stopping…until now. And in "Kitchen," set within a long and narrow galley kitchenette, a wife (Eileen Walsh), standing by her sink, wills her own implosion.
Seeing You is an immersive experience underneath New York City's High Line park. At once narcotic and eye-opening, the show is the result of a bold collaboration between Randy Weiner, Ryan Heffington, and Cantora (Will Griggs and Nick Panama), featuring environmental storytelling by David Gallo and costume design by Desi Santiago.
