Jeff Ross The Roastmaster General. A One Man Verbal Assault Unit. Pizza Enthusiast. Jeff can most recently be seen on Comedy Central on the hit show Roast Battle, which aired at the end of July. His new special, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, aired September 10th on Comedy Central. Jeff Ross is known to the world as the modern day Don Rickles. The King of roasting. Let's face it, if there's a roast and he's not there, it's not a real roast. Growing up in Newark, NJ he took the greatest weapon he had to fight his way out of there. His Mouth. Since then, Jeff has roasted anyone who would accept the challenge. From Criminals, to Soldiers, to Politicians, to Pop Icons. He has no limits, even roasting criminals inside the walls of a maximum security county jail in Texas (check out Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals). Sure some comedians perform in jails, but no other comedian would have it in their right mind to immerse themselves inside a jail for three days, and then invite those same incarcerated people on stage with him to get roasted face-to-face.

The Boys from Syracuse - Theater Row
Through February 18, 2018 - New York

The Boys from Syracuse Summary The Boys from Syracuse by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart is loosely based upon Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors as adapted by George Abbott who directed it. George Balanchine choreographed the show. Songs include: "Sing for Your Supper", "You Took Advantage of Me", "This Can't Be Love", "Oh, Diogenes!", "What Do You Do With a Man?" and "Falling in Love with Love". Identical twins Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse, were separated from each other in a shipwreck as young children. Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins. When the pair from Syracuse come to Ephesus, a comedy of errors and mistaken identities ensues when the wives of the Ephesians, Adriana and her servant Luce, mistake the two strangers for their husbands. Adriana's sister Luciana and the Syracuse Antipholus fall in love. But all ends happily.

A Midsummer Night's Dream - Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

"Frog & Peach is a jewel of Off-Broadway. You can't find a more exhilarating evening than to join this troupe for a romp in the woods!" – Ronald Gross, NYTB Guide The renowned Frog & Peach Theatre Company follows up their record breaking Sheen Center debut of 2017's Macbeth with A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's rollicking romp of romance, wizardry, and show biz. A Midsummer Night's Dream transports audiences to the palaces of Athens, and the dark, bewitching forests surrounding the kingdom, where the fairy King Oberon (Erick Gonzalez, star of 2017's hit Macbeth) and his Queen Titania (Amy Frances Quint) are waging a deliciously romantic war. With help from the devilish Puck (Marcus Watson) Oberon casts a spell over his estranged lover, as well as the lovers Hermia (Alyssa Diamond), Helena (Bess Miller), Lysander (Edan Jacob Levy) and Demetrius (Kyle Primack). Meanwhile, as the Mechanicals rehearse their tragically hilarious Pyramus & Thisby, Puck cannot resist transforming the hapless Bottom (Kevin Hauver) into a donkey. Will witchcraft spell disaster, or save the day? With themes of sexual politics, climate change, and celebrity, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a st... (read more)

Kings - The Public Theater
Through March 25, 2018 - New York

Playwright Sarah Burgess (Dry Powder) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dry Powder) team up again for KINGS, a hilariously blistering new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic. Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? KINGS is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

Black Light - The Public Theater

Daniel Alexander Jones returns to Joe's Pub as Jomama Jones, his critically-acclaimed alter-ego, in BLACK LIGHT. Commissioned as part of Joe's Pub's NEW YORK VOICES program, BLACK LIGHT is a musical revival for a turbulent time. Jomama leads an intimate journey – through the darkness of personal and political upheaval, and the shards of shattered illusions – illuminated by spontaneous humor and what The New Yorker calls her "very particular radiance." Set to pop, soul, rock and disco, this immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story and song.

Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The Low Road - The Public Theater
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.
