Open: 01/18/18- Close: 02/11/18 JOSEPHINE
JOSEPHINE, a burlesque cabaret dream play combines cabaret, theatre and dance to tell the story of the iconic Josephine Baker, the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th Century. Josephine shatters stereotypes of race, gender roles and sexuality in this intimate, charming and haunting cabaret with a twist.  Born in St. Louis in 1906, Josephine Baker achieved only moderate success in the United States, but became an international superstar after moving to France in the early 20’s. She starred alongside white romantic leading men in films in the 30’s, had multiple interracial marriages and homosexual relationships, and performed in men’s clothing before the term “drag” existed in the lexicon.

Open: 01/11/18- Close: 01/27/18 PILLOWTALK
Set in Brooklyn 2017, PILLOWTALK brings to life one night in the lives of Sam and Buck, a recently married interracial couple. Through a formal exploration of theatrical naturalism and the codified gender norms of ballet's pas de deux, PILLOWTALK queers the intersections of race, gender, and class to challenge our assumptions of love and marriage. Confronting the backlash against marriage equality and #BlackLivesMatter, PILLOWTALK explores how liberation and oppression co-exist in our most intimate spaces, transforming social and cultural traditions into radical performances of change.

The Tank (Meghan Finn and Rosalind Grush, Artistic Directors) will present the World Premiere of PILLOWTALK by Kyoung’s Pacific Beat written and directed by Kyoung H.

Open: 01/13/18- Close: 02/10/18 THE THING WITH FEATHERS
A world premiere, with a cast of four, The Thing With Feathers feels almost like a thriller as Scott Organ masterfully spins the tale of a teenager girl who strikes up a relationship with an older man on the internet. Things are not as they seem, however. What appears to be a classic predator tale unravels into a maze of secrets, lies & unexpected truths. As a culture, we are being asked to examine our actions, specifically where power is involved. This play brings that conversation home.

Seth Barrish (“Sleepwalk With Me,” The Tricky Part, Expecting Isabel) directs another wonderful cast featuring Zachary Booth (The Winslow Boy, “Damages”), DeAnna Lenhart(Point Last Seen, Phoenix), Robert Manning, Jr.

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
