Open: 02/13/16- Close: 02/13/16 AN AFTERNOON OF BROADWAY COMEDY MAGIC,
There will be comedy, magic and mayhem as magician Randy Masters presents his “Broadway Comedy Magic” show for one performance only at Broadway Comedy Club. Randy combines comedy magic, mind reading, and audience-participation into a high-energy show that is appropriate for ages 7 to 107. The hour-long show includes illusions with cards, borrowed rings and money, ball bearings, billiard balls, balloons, wine bottles, rope, and even potatoes (don’t ask). Randy will be keeping this clean as it’s an all-ages family show. There will be magic for the kids and sleight of hand and mentalism for the adults.

At 12:30 pm there will be close-up/strolling magic at your table, followed by an hour stand-up comedy magic show.

Open: 02/09/16- Close: 06/14/16 Juliana
It’s 1941 and Alice “Al” Huffman comes from the potato fields of Long Island with her beau, her best girlfriend and her girlfriend’s beau to make it on the Broadway stage only to find she has no talent. She meets Max, a former producer, talent manager and possible con man who introduces her to the glamorous, perpetually on the brink of stardom night club singer, Juliana. Juliana’s voice sounds to Al like “warm milk slipping down the whole of my body.” Al is increasingly drawn into a secret gay underworld of men who wear dresses and women who smoke cigars, while her childhood friends continue in their “normal” lives. Al glides easily between the two worlds until these worlds begin to collide. Juliana is the first in a series of novels about the same characters living through forthcoming decades of LGBT history.
