The Amazing Max is an "awesome and hilarious live magic show for the whole family" (PBS Kids). What's truly amazing, as magician Max Darwin works miracles during the show, is not only what happens on stage but also what happens in the audience. The enchanted look that spreads across the faces of his young (and not-so-young) fans is hands down astounding. Max conjures a custom experience that young ones will carry with them long after the show ends.

Back by popular demandand expanded!

Playwright Paul Alexander is a NY nightlife legend most notably known for the 1990s performance art-dance party Jackie 60 where he honed his vocal emcee and performance skills. Following many solo underground dance singles he gained international success with the dance pop trio THE ONES, known for their #1 Dance/#7 Pop hit Flawless.


Trinkets, is an original musical play set in NYC during the 1990s. It tells a story of a group of drag and transsexual prostitutes, who work the streets of the meatpacking district. This fantastical story taken from reality shows a moment in the growth of the LGBT community, which is often overlooked.


During this time, acceptance of this fringe group by the straight world was often little to none; so many drag and transsexual females were given no opportunity for real
