A comic glimpse into 35 years behind the wheel of a New York City yellow taxi, Off the Meter, on the Record is a pithy social commentary from New York's most recognizable cab driver about life spent behind the wheel. John McDonagh, a veteran WBAI radio host in New York, has condensed 30-plus years of activism, reality show antics, and observation into a love song to the city that never sleeps. From the plight of the N.Y.C. homeless to the crazy demands of Upper East Side matrons, McDonagh brings the audience from laughter to tears and back again faster than the apparition of umbrella dealers on a rainy day. Throw in his tales of brushes with the rich and famous, such as driving Stephen Fry to a Queens social club and teaching Top Gear's Richard Hammond how to drive a cab, and you have Irish storytelling at its best.

A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender — a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: An upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made?
Women's Project Theater teams up with the Bushwick Starr and New Georges to present the off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [Porto] written by Kate Benson and directed by Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP Theater in 2015.

Notable for its blending of comedy and drama and attention to the ordinary details of everyday life, The Show-Off revolves around a working-class Irish family in North Philadelphia in the mid-1920s. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher and their three adult children are thrown into a state of turmoil when Amy, the middle child, brings home a preposterous suitor named Aubrey Piper.

A battle of wits ensues, and the outcome is a vindication (of sorts) of the American con man. Penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning author George Kelly, The Show-Off has earned its reputation as one of a handful of classic American stage comedies that continue to hold up decades after being written.

This production at New York's United Solo Festival is the East Coast premiere of Pam Levin's endearingly irreverent work.
