This new one-man show developed by Danny Franzese and The Theatre Project comes to off-Broadway for the holiday season. Best known for his work in the breakthrough films Bully, Mean Girls and S*it Italian Moms Say, the multi-talented Franzese presents his unique take on celebrity, the industry and vulnerability through a blend of storytelling, sketch comedy and hilarious insider info. If you've ever envied the lives of the rich and famous, you'll love this quirky take on everything from Franzese's love for street art, parties at Val Kilmer's house, and getting dirty looks from Tom Cruise. In between gasps of laughter, you might just realize, "It's not all sunglasses and autographs, kid!" Learn More

Lysistrata Rape Play by Mariah MacCarthy
In a not too distant future, American women have decided: enough is enough. Rape has to stop. In fact, they'll give up sex completely in protest. As the enormity of their sacrifice sets in, sh*t starts to get real ... deeply, uncomfortably real. A dark, dark, dark comedy.
The Butcher by Gwydion Suilebhan
In 2004, the butcher and sole proprietor of the Super Halal Market in suburban Springfield, VA ducked into the walk-in freezer to fetch some goat meat for a customer. When he returned moments later, the customer’s severed left hand lay on the floor by the meat saw, and a trail of blood led all the way out of the store. In the ensuing weeks, the butcher, his wife, a reporter and one innocent family try to make sense of this ultimately bewildering (and all too true) event.
