Jason Kravits Returns To Birdland Theater With Award-winning OFF The TOP!


Jason Kravits improvises an entire cabaret from scratch (twice!) in his triumphant return to Birdland Theater with OFF the TOP! April 28th and 29th.

"An entire cabaret made up on the spot? Who does that?!" TV regular and Broadway veteran Jason Kravits attempts the daringly impossible (or at least scarily inadvisable) in his critically acclaimed, jaw-dropping, completely improvised solo evening of music and comedy, OFF THE TOP! which returns to Birdland Theater for back-to-back shows, April 28th and 29th. (Special Guest Stars to be announced.)

Over the course of an exhilarating 75 minutes, Jason keeps the crowd on the edge of their seat by systematically pulling audience suggestions from a fishbowl (e.g. "The last text you received," "Words to live by," etc.), then using them as fodder to create an entire life story in song, with every bit of it- including every lyric and melody- made up by Jason on the spot! Backed by the most fearless band in the business, OFF the TOP! is music, comedy, improv, cabaret and magic, all stirred together and poured into a martini glass, creating one intoxicating cocktail of fun!

Jason Kravits has been been a familiar face on stages and screens for over three decades. Perhaps best known for his long-running role as Richard Bay on ABC's The Practice, he has made appearances in over 50 television shows, including The Kominsky Method, The Big Bang Theory, The Deuce, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Kimmy Schmidt, Madam Secretary, 30 Rock and even the last episode of Friends. On Broadway, Kravits made a splash with his work in the hit musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. He also appeared in Relatively Speaking, three original one-acts by Ethan Coen, Elaine May, and Woody Allen. Jason is the creator of the acclaimed web series Lords of the Playground, the parody musical, Harrison!, and the holiday stories The Kvetch and A Christmoose Story.

OFF the TOP! has played stages large and small for the past four years. From it's humble beginnings at The Duplex Theater in New York, the show has played to sold-out crowds all around the world, including stops at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Brasserie Zédel (London), Upstairs at Vitello's (LA), with upcoming shows this summer in Washington D.C. and Amsterdam. OFF the TOP! took home the award for Best Musical Comedy at 2017's Bistro Awards in New York City.
