DON'T QUIT is the critically acclaimed late night happening of comedy, music and offbeat performances where Broadway and improv meet...and make out! It began in 2006 as a one-off benefit at Joe's Pub, which grew into ten sold out months. A commercial off-Broadway production followed in 2007; subsequently, DQYNJ has played sold out runs at the Zipper Factory, Julia Miles Theater, and Le Poisson Rouge.
Over the years, DON'T QUIT has welcomed an extraordinary range of entertainers: Huey Lewis, Hank Azaria, Julianna Margulies, Michael McKean, Marc Shaiman, Alicia Witt, Marvin Hamlisch, Anthony Rapp, Sara Ramirez, George Wendt, Bebe Neuwirth, David Hyde Pierce, Julie White, Patrick Wilson, Andrea Martin, Kelli O'Hara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mo Rocca and Josh Gad are just a few of the many guests who have appeared on the show.
