Dan Lauria, star of TV’s The Wonder Years and Sullivan & Son as well as Broadway’s Lombardi and the hit musical A Christmas Story, pens a killer comedy about a couple of old-time wise guys who just want to have a good Italian meal, a few laughs, and tie-up some loose ends before dessert.  The cast includes Dan Lauria, Ray Abruzzo, who played Little Carmine Lupertazzi for four seasons on HBO’s The Sopranos, and Richard Zavaglia, veteran of stage and screen, who has appeared in such films as Donnie Brasco with Al Pacino and Johnny Depp.

Open: 08/31/14- Close: 09/06/14 Daughter Of The Waves
The year is 1941. The war in Europe rages on. The Location: A windswept beach in neutral Ireland where a traveling theater troupe has smuggled in Jewish refugees from war torn Europe. As the aerialists, acrobats, contortionists, and singers prepare to mount a new production, the circus' shining star has fallen silent, the frequently drunk clown has disappeared into the night, insomniac ballerinas scan the waves for hidden German U-boats, and a shadowy presence keeps turning on the wireless radio. DAUGHTER OF THE WAVES tells the true untold story of Jewish refugees learning to survive in a new world. DAUGHTER OF THE WAVES examines the struggle of 'otherness' through the tale of the Selkie myth - a man who transforms for the love a girl and pays with his life.

New York City's ONLY Boozy Chekhov!

Oh, the (Cards Against) Humanity! That's right, people. Get ready for family game night gone terribly awry when we pair up Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya with “the party game for horrible people.” In this unique and beautifully tragic adaptation, we’ll play games, enjoy practical jokes and take shots of all kinds with our favorite angsty Russians! What could be more refreshing than slinging back some chilled vodka with Three Day Hangover’s very own Drunkle Vanya?
