The boy subsequently develops an addiction that continues until the age of 26, when he meets his wife-to-be and finds himself struggling to find the balance between fantasy and reality.

Audience-interactive physical theater about the difference between passion and intimacy, and the wild heart, mind, and body journey to attaining and sharing both. The main character learns passion but not intimacy from her family, then goes out on her life-path learning intimacy, with diversely odd and just-like-everybody-else ups and downs, crashes and celebrations. She ultimately brings intimacy home.
A funny work about a serious thing, this show aims to also evoke desire for family connection, deeper authenticity, more outrageous expression, and immense self-love in the audience, as they, too, unite in love and creativity.
The star of the cult TV comedy hit Black Books returns to New York City in an all-new show. Dylan Moran is sarcastic, unique, and glorious — go enjoy one of the masters of stand-up comedy!
When 23-year-old performer Walker Vreeland took a job as a lead singer for Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2003, he could never have imagined the voyage that lay ahead. Boarding the Bermuda-bound ship would precipitate a mental breakdown so severe, he would wind up months later at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Mood Disorder Psychiatric Ward. From Ship to Shape is a tragicomic autobiographical monologue about one young man's struggle with mental illness in today's world.
This one-man show paints a picture of a family and a time. Songs by New York artist and musician Marc McBarron Kessler. Starring J. Michael Reeds.
A sexually charged and wickedly funny one-man thriller, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man who leads an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.
her, him, prince, michael & marvin (aka Love is Love is Love) was birthed out of April, 21, 2016, and the passing of the Purple One. After MJ in 2009, Mia Anderson was shocked by how she was impacted by the transition of men she had never met and wouldn't know her if she passed them on the street. This piece explores how three artists have impacted her and brought her closer or helped to heal the pieces that have seemed disparate but are part of her.
#IamSueCostello is Sue Costello's life story that she has been writing for 20 years. It was inspired after her TV show —Costello on Fox — got cancelled. She read an article in the New York Times that said that poor kids hear fewer words than rich kids. Costello thought, "I'm not going to stop telling my story, no matter how many words I have or how many obstacles I have to overcome." The result is a play that connects the dots in a journey to a girl returning to her authentic self.
Costello, though best known as a comedian, created and performs this play solo but with extraordinary range. She plays herself at different periods in her life and converses with real-life characters the audience can't see but whose presence is as real and riveting as hers. What's especially striking about #IamSueCostello is that it isn't simply a monologue about Costello's life or a series of quick impressions, but a part-comedic performance, part-raw emotional saga.
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.
The Tony Award-winning author, performer, and activist Eve Ensler, whose Vagina Monologues is an international sensation, comes to Manhattan Theatre Club with a powerful new play based on her critically acclaimed memoir. While working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis. Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler's personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. Directing this bold, unflinching, and inspiring piece is Tony winner Diane Paulus (Waitress).
The play transports us to out-of-the-way, unknown areas of the world as they were before they faded into oblivion from the inevitable reaches of war, mayhem, and modernization. Stephan Morrow shows that there is no real glory that is usually perceived of traveling to these parts of the world, only a grim and often disconcerting reality. Through his exploration of the "old ways," Morrow introduces the idea of himself being not a man without a country but a man of all countries, his idea of true freedom.
Michael Moore makes his Broadway debut in this exhilarating, subversive one-man show. The Terms of My Surrender takes audiences on a ride through the United States of Insanity, posing the question, "Can a Broadway show take down a sitting president?" Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) directs.
Step into the kitchen. The onions are cooking on the stove and meat is on the cutting board waiting to be chopped. Our host is preparing kubah, a traditional Syrian dish. While she cooks, she tells us the story of meeting Ashraf, a Syrian exile, and falling in love with him as he desperately tries to help those he was forced to leave behind. When he vanishes, she impulsively trails him to her homeland — one she has never known, now consumed by war. As the meal comes together and then falls apart, we learn the stories of brutality, grace, and humanity of those she witnessed along the way.

The Pharmacist is a one-man show about a pharmacist who accidentally gives someone the wrong prescription and then tries to fix his mistake. It's a story about depression and antidepressants, about heartbreak and love, and about what happens when your worst mistakes hit the Internet. Funny, dark, and to the point, the show is at once a speculative fiction about the direction of the Internet culture and an investigation of modern loneliness.
A pharmacist starts swapping people's antidepressants out for placebos and watching them descend into depression. At first it is an accident, but as time goes on, the pharmacist finds that watching people slowly lose their grip on life is, in essence, the best show he's ever seen. He selects his victims. The catharsis of causing deaths brings a jolt of excitement into his own wretched life, and soon enough, he is hooked. Proud of his achievements and eager to show off, he begins videotaping the killings to publish them online — with instant success.
The Rhythm/Da Blues follows Lena, a young woman who grew up in a family of storytellers. When it was her turn to take the mic, she had plenty to say, but not enough courage to spit it. That's when her Auntie, Miss B. Darling, a trans woman and businessperson, steps in to teach Lena how to find the beat. Playing multiple characters, Wade brings her own brand of southern charm and ferocious wit to this celebration of family, first loves, and #BlackGirlMagic. The Gnome Haus presents this world premiere solo show from writer and performer E.E. Wade.
Bruce Springsteen himself on his solo show: "I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible. I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters, which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I've played in the last 40 years. My show is just me, the guitar, the piano, and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken; some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value."
Nina Leeds's life crumbles when her true love is killed in World War One. Flitting from one man to the next until she settles for a life she never wanted, Nina is stalked by the fantasy of the happiness she never got to share with her late fiancé. This 1928 saga follows the lives of eight characters over the course of a half-century.
Transport Group's radical revival of Strange Interlude reunites David Greenspan, dramaturg Kristina Corcoran Williams, and director Jack Cummings III in an almost preposterous feat. The three of them present Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning nine-act, five-hour play as an uncut one-night solo performance.
A candle that moves water, a paper cup that won't burn, a firefly without fire. An atomic flash, weaponized sugar, a hydrogen bomb. A genie in a bottle, secret writing, elephant toothpaste...yes! All these and more constitute That Chemistry Show, 80 minutes of incredible exploration led by longtime "mad scientist" Borislaw Bilash. Expect amazement and lots of laughter as Borislaw combines the world of chemistry and the world of show business.
Seth Barrish directs Martin Moran's award-winning solo show developed at the Barrow Group. Following its premiere in 2004, The Tricky Part received a 2004 Obie Award, two Drama Desk Award nominations (Outstanding Play and Outstanding Solo Performance), an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination (Outstanding Solo Performance) and a GLAAD Media Award Nomination (Outstanding NY Theater: Broadway and Off-Broadway). Moran has performed the piece throughout the United States and internationally. He has also authored an award-winning memoir by the same title, published by Anchor Press. Ticket sales and contributions will go toward the Barrow Group's 2017-18 production season.
You, Me and Anxiety is a solo cabaret show, written and performed by Rachel Schmeling, on the subject of mental health. This show is part stand-up, part audience interaction, part musical journey, and part panic disaster. Schmeling takes her audience on a wild one-hour ride into the mental state of someone dealing with anxiety and panic disorder. Musical director is pianist Jody Shelton. In this cabaret, Schmeling looks back to pivotal moments in her life when anxiety took over and she had to deal with it, sometimes in song. These moments seemed normal enough, but each one is taken as an imminent threat to the character Schmeling plays, who is an exaggerated version of herself. Every one of them leaves her paralyzed in anxiety and fear. Her thoughts are narrated out loud and we learn more about the reasoning behind her anxiety attacks. The music of the piece varies in genre from contemporary pop to classic rock to mash-ups and more. The show ends with a heartfelt message from Schmeling.
