Hipster Cinderella  | Open: 08/31/07 Close: 09/14/07
This colorful parody of hipster culture begins the tale at the Lower East Side apartment of three hipster girls; Julia, Becca and Stingy Patty. When Cindy, Julia's plain Jane best friend moves to NYC and moves in with the girls, she is surprised to find out that Julia is now a hipster. Cindy must change quickly if she wants to be accepted by Julia and her cool new crowd. So after a trip to Williamsburg, a lesson from the F.A.G. (Fat Ass Godmother) and a rendezvous with Jesse Camp (The Hipster Prince) at the CBGB Ball, will Cindy stay simple, or go hipster for once and for all?
Rash Behaviour  | Open: 07/12/07 Close: 07/12/07
Founded in 2001, Rash Behaviour is a New York City based improv and sketch comedy group that is made up of various improv performers with training from across the country. The groups' sketch material skewers everything from the television and media to the government and beyond. In the world of Rash Behaviour things like racism, sexism, and pop culture crazes become fodder for comic debate.

Rash Behaviour's shows also feature their own brand of free form improvisation, inspired by the many disciplines learned individually by each member. Audience members can't be shy either, because the long form improvisations are made up of their funny personal interests and details gathered by members of the group throughout the show.

In addition to live performances, Rash Behaviour recently completed a television pilot that is currently in post-production. The group also starred in the documentary Confederate Behaviour, by director Eric Trenkamp. This film was awarded Honorable Mention at the 2003 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival and went on to the Los Angeles Festival in 2004. Individually, members of Rash Behaviour have appeared on such shows/networks as Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Strangers With Candy, SNL, The Chris Rock Show, Nick at Nite, and yes, even The History Channel.
