The Pumpkin Pie Show

October 16th, 2014 - November 1st, 2014

The Pumpkin Pie Show

Come sail the high seas with The Pumpkin Pie Show! An outbreak of norovirus quickly spreads through the passengers and crew onboard a luxury cruise-liner, including the captain, cutting short this sunny sojourn through the tropics. But before the ship can dock at the nearest port, tensions escalate amongst the frantic passengers. The foundation of civil society quickly deteriorates—dividing everyone onboard into two separate camps: those who are sick and those who aren’t. As the ship veers far off course and the number of ill passengers rises, one family must fight for their survival onboard this sun-and-blood drenched cruise into madness.

HAPPY

November 7th, 2014

HAPPY

Eleanore Pienta's HAPPY explores characters that are funny, sweet, sexy, and often heartbreaking. Pienta interweaves live performance and video as she both mocks and celebrates pop-culture. Using and subverting the conventions of sketch, improv comedy and dance, she moves through these differing characters at a surprising pace. What comes together over the course of the performance is how wide a grab of life comedy can be, and how we all navigate life's challenges to find our version of happy.

The Dark Fantastic

An immersive storytelling experience like no other After a 6-month, critically acclaimed tour across North America, Dockery returns home to New York with his immersive, lyrical story The Dark Fantastic. In a performance unlike any other, Dockery tells the tale of three characters who collide during a car crash in the desert, revealing a world that’s as fantastical as it is comically mundane and as terrifying as it is alive with wonder.

So, I found $1800 in cash. With a little detective work I might be able to find its rightful owner. But will I? Why should I? What bad could possibly happen if I hold onto it for a little while? A lot.

The Story Collider: Stories About Science

November 6th, 2014

The Story Collider: Stories About Science

Science surrounds us. Even when we don't notice it, science touches almost every part of our lives. At the Story Collider, we believe that everyone has a story about science—a story about how science made a difference, affected them, or changed them on a personal and emotional level. In our Gotham Storytelling Festival show, four storytellers will share hilarious, moving, or earth-shattering stories of life-altering science.

Best In Show: Not Just Another Open Mic

Get a chance to tell a 5-minute story and receive friendly, constructive feedback from a panel of three seasoned storytellers who may or may not be liquored up at any given time during the show. No scores, just shop talk. At night's end, someone will be crowned "Best in Show" and receive fabulous prizes. (Probably just verbal accolades and a bag of chocolates from Duane Reade. Maybe Rite-Aid.) Also, there may be other surprises. We don't know. We're just making this shit up as we go along.

Drawn Out

November 7th, 2014

Drawn Out

Where storytellers get drawn. Drawn Out is the symbiotic relationship between life and art. We combine personal narrative with visual and musical elements to make a whole much greater than the sum of the parts. It has been said: "If this show was an X-Man, it would be Husk...constantly tearing off its own skin to reveal something different and unexpected each time." (The Mary Sue)

Stupefied

Join comedic performer Paul Hutcheson as he informs audiences about what 'stupefies' him in life. From body parts, sexual activities, teaching teenagers to adventures as a traveling performer, Hutcheson is constantly 'stupefied' by the world around him. For two years, Hutcheson has been producing and hosting cabaret shows and is excited to be back performing as a solo storyteller. This will be his fourth solo show. "...he demonstrates a wonderful set of performing chops and comic timing to die for." -Calgary Herald "For those who like their men nervous and confessional (think David Sedaris rather than Woody Allen) get ready to propose." -X-tra West "I think the New York scene needs a few more Paul Hutchesons." - The Happiest Medium

Daddy Issues

November 10th, 2014

Daddy Issues

I’d been telling stories about many parts of my life and realized that I had a pretty complete arc of stories related to the tumultuous relationship between my father and I. I’ve collected 7 of those stories and made them into a show. It’s always a work in progress as the relationship is still ongoing. Until he dies, at which point, I will most likely dance on his grave.
