TSGO presents New York City's premiere (and only) venue dedicated to both live music and theatre. A cross between a cabaret club and traditional Off-Broadway theatre, The Hybrid is a club that hosts concerts, theatrical runs, and events. With a 150 seating capacity and 400 standing capacity, the venue fills a hole in the Off-Broadway market for an intimate and flexible space with several platforms that move into multiple configurations. The venue comfortably accommodates seating as well as standing audiences, with a full service bar in the same room as the stage. Theatre will be presented with non-traditional performance schedules, sharing the space and cross-promoting with concerts, music events, and more. The LAUNCH PARTY will show off the new venue is all its splendor, including showcasing the sounds of multiple performances.
Maximus England Shaban is TSGO's developing artist and will make his solo performance debut at the Launch Party. After playing soccer for the Manchester U18, Maximus left the sport to pursue music. After a brief stint recording and performing with a pop-punk band, he now focuses on his own sound: a unique blend of alternative/pop-rock with an indie touch of...Maximus. He has written over a dozen songs and plans to release singles over the next year in conjunction with live performances around the city.
From the brilliant minds of Ewalt and Walker comes Bromance the Dudesical, fresh off their second sold-out concert at Joe's Pub. Like an awesome buddy movie come to life, BROMANCE reveals a world of Beer, Brotherhood, and Brocabulary. Directed by Matt Cowart.
