Open: 03/07/19- Close: 03/31/19 A Jewish Joke
Bernie Lutz is a curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM, who comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950’s Hollywood. Now, he has to decide what’s more important – his friends, or his livelihood? Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant solo dramedy is about one American’s fight against one of the darkest moments of the mid-20th century. A Jewish Joke began in San Diego and has toured regionally with critically-acclaimed engagements in Chicago, St. Louis, Louisville, and New Haven. A Jewish Joke was named “Best Drama” of the 2016 United Solo Festival, NY.

Open: 02/22/19- Close: 03/10/19 I FAVOR MY DADDY
Is Jamie (4-time Moth champ and “natural raconteur” -Washington Post) the full-blown version of Daddy Poo—not the Catholic, conservative part, but the gay, alcoholic part? “Jamie lights up the stage…a riveting, thoroughly polished performance…comedic perfection.” (Theater Is Easy “Best Bet” of New York International Fringe Festival)

Darkly comic, “I Favor My Daddy” is the follow up to "Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother." That show was about Jamie’s drinking and sexuality, and his mother Mama Jean. This show is about Jamie’s father, Daddy Poo, and HIS drinking and HIS sexuality. Jamie struggles to discover who his father really was. In the last years they have together, Jamie reveals his secrets to Daddy Poo.

Open: 02/26/19- Close: 02/26/19 PLACES
A multimedia solo show about one of Broadway's biggest stars, silent film legend and trailblazing lesbian iconoclast, Alla Nazimova, written and performed by Romy Nordlinger (Places, 59East59/Edinburgh Fringe).

Long before Madonna, the world was Gaga for Nazimova. Places, a theatrical multimedia solo show, tells the story of Alla Nazimova, the forgotten lesbian trailblazer, iconoclast and the greatest star you’ve never heard of. Escaping anti-semitic Tsarist Russia, she became Broadway’s biggest star with the Shubert’s naming a theater after her. Nazimova also became Hollywood’s highest paid silent screen icon and the film industry’s first female director and producer. Defying moral and artistic codes of her time, she was forced into obscurity.
