So many new shows – plus, a musical!

January 27th, 2017

February 2017

We are going to be at some wonderful places in February, including two in Manhattan. The Village Lantern, West Village on a fun-rollicking Thursday night bill with comedians and action, and The Penrose on the Upper East Side on a Sunday night, to close out your week.

Plus, we have Greenpoint Ale and Beer – wonderful place to get your craft beer on.

All dates are in the “Events” column to the right.

We are also making great progress on Selling Sacred Objects, a musical adaptation of Arnold Bennett’s prescient 1908 novel, Buried Alive. I’m working on this with Tony Grimaldi, gifted songwriter and former lead guitarist of the Niagaras. Soon we’ll be workshopping this and we can’t wait.IMG_4009w

Please come by, we can’t wait to see you and dance and forget everything for a while.

We can’t wait to see you!
