Open: 05/13/16- Close: 05/28/16 SPERMHOOD
Called “the ultimate satirist of the downtown New York social landscape,” by The New York Times, and “a wonderful performer” by The New Yorker,  acclaimed writer and performer Mike Albo’s comedy Spermhood chronicles the year he spent trying to make a baby with his friends, a lesbian couple. Albo explores the insanity of modern digital dating, the reproductive industry, the lingering shadow of AIDS for gay men, and what it takes to be a father.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run STANDARD TOYKRAFT'S CARDBOARD ROBOT BATTLE, EPISODE V, DISNEY BUYS THE FRANCHISE
A UNIQUE PUPPETRY EVENT
9 Contestants will build their own robot out of cardboard and packing tape. These are the only materials allowed!! They should paint and decorate their robots, but more importantly they create cardboard killing machines.

Robots should be of "vehicle" design, similar to the Mars Rover or other type machines. Contestants are not allowed to create humanoid robot costumes. No Robocops here! This will give an unfair advantage, and be more akin to the human sport known as "boxing".

The Cardbot Battle would not be complete without our celeb host, Ring Fembots, Inter-match shows, drink specials and so much more!


How does this crazy thing work?
2 Robots will enter the ring based on a "heavy weight- light weight" system. The winners will then proceed to a Battle Royal Round where all the champions will battle one another.

Open: 04/23/16- Close: 05/22/16 TOAST
Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else. But this shift is going to be different. Because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages. Following the smash sell out production in London and UK tour, Richard Bean’s (One Man, Two Guvnors) hilarious and brilliantly observed play arrives in New York for a strictly limited Brits Off Broadway engagement.

TOAST, Richard Bean’s first major play, was originally produced at the Royal Court Theatre in 1999. The Snapdragon production marks the play’s the first major revival in London, and the Brits Off Broadway run marks its US premiere.

Open: 05/05/16- Close: 06/05/16 VILLAINOUS COMPANY: A CAPER FOR THREE WOMEN
When Claire returns home from an afternoon of shopping, she discovers one of her packages is missing. Just as she is calling the store, an employee stops by to return the item, then manages to invite herself inside. Before long, larceny and trickery abound as the two women, soon joined by a third, compete in a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse.

Open: 04/14/16- Close: 05/08/16 WHEN I WAS A GIRL I USED TO SCREAM AND SHOUT
Embracing her Scottish culture and wit, Sharman Macdonald’s When I Was A Girl I Used To Scream and Shout is a bitingly funny, delicately crafted memory play, exploring the parallel growing pains of a mother and daughter. Set in 1983, the play takes a stripped and honest look at the relationship between childless, unmarried Fiona and her crisp, divorced mother Morag, with whom she is sharing a Scottish beach holiday. As the play unfolds we discover it was in the very same resort where at least a decade previously, the young Fiona struggling with an imposed view of religion and sexuality, deliberately got pregnant to prevent Morag's remarriage and her mother's one chance of happiness.
