Le Blanc - The PIT Loft
Through August 06, 2018 - New York

Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. Our show follows the rags to riches (back to rags) autobiography of the world infamous, unapologetically Black, openly queer, political, and talented (fictional) character of Wellington "Isyss" Le Blanc. Through a series of interviews and vignettes, we explore Wellington's life from his humble beginnings as a motherless child in the Foster/Adoption system of California, to his sexy exploits as a serial monogamist with a diverse selection of male and female lovers, all the way through his unconventional outlook and relationship with HIV/AIDS, and right into his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the "House Of Le Blanc". What lies beyond his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer will be sure to shock as audiences witness his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and "criminal". The show explores race, intimacy, sexuality, relationships, as well as our American judicial, health care, and law enforcement systems from a Black, All American, queer perspective.

Say What? NYC Comedy Improv - The PIT Loft
Through August 11, 2018 - New York

Say What? NYC is a NYC based short form improv group comprised of the finest misfits comedy has to offer. Hosted by one comedian, the cast must perform an array of improvised games and songs based on suggestions by the host as well as the audience (whom are encouraged to participate or even invited on stage to interact with the cast.) Performers must use the information given and their insane imaginations to portray different characters as well as an array of scenes. These games were made popular by the show "Whose Line It Anyway?".
