NEW MUSICAL! IN THE TRENCHES FEAT. Jason SweetTooth Williams & MORE! - JULY 13 AT 7:00 PM

This performance will also be livestreamed. For tickets and more information, click here.

Join two bleary-eyed young parents as they trudge through the trenches and discover their post-baby identities. In an evening of new-parent Greatest Hits, a foul-mouthed toddler zeroes in on "The Most Dangerous Thing In The Room," tap dancing towards bleach, knives, and tide pods; a chronically-overlooked younger sibling sings the "Second Child Blues"; a mom trio celebrates yoga pants in an R&B love song to the "official mom uniform"; Dad discovers he's not the "ice-cream and movie-night cool parent" but rather the "do your homework real parent" amid a kiddo sugar-crash; and Mom retrieves a sticky, hair-covered pacifier from the floor of a LaGuardia bathroom while her baby screams bloody murder and her flight boards without her.

Sold-out audiences have called this "potty-mouthed parent party" "relatable," "hilarious," "laugh-til-you-cry," and "heartwarming." The score features a wide array of musical styles, from doo-wop to hip hop, Gilbert and Sullivan patter to 80's rock, Motown to musical theater, and more, "all delivered with power and finesse." Similar to I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, The Book of Mormon, and Avenue Q, the show contains adult language and humor and is a perfect date night or moms' night out.

Featuring Jason SweetTooth Williams, Graham Fuller, Kristina Fuller, Valerie Igoe, Scott Rathbun, Marcos René Ospina, and Vidushi Goyal.

Composed by Graham Fuller and Kristina Fuller.

$55 cover charge. $90 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.

Broadway would not be complete without its hundreds of fiercely talented child actors who have recently been seen in shows like Frozen, Caroline, Or Change, The Lion King, Flying Over Sunset, and many others.

When the pandemic hit Broadway in the Spring of 2020, many of these brilliant young actors aged out of their respective shows and unfortunately could not return when Broadway finally had its grand 2021 reopening. Now, these current Broadway kids are joining forces with former Broadway kids all grown up to show that this heartbreaking circumstance can happen to the best of them, and this group can live to tell the tale!

Come see current Broadway kids finally get a chance to shine in the roles meant for them in a different time, for one night only. They will also be joined by former Broadway kids all grown up who are living proof that it all gets better after that big growth spurt!

Featuring Alexander Bello, Dara Paige Bloomfield, Layla Capers, William Thomas Colin, Jonathan Demar, Mariama Diop, Blair Goldberg, Kaylin Hedges, Joey LaVarco, Noah Marlowe, Olivia Oguma, and Joshua Turchin.

54 SALUTES Frank Sinatra - JULY 16 AT 9:30 PM

RIZO - JULY 17 AT 8:00 PM

Seductively peeling back layers of alter-ego, Grammy winner Rizo explores the delight and trappings of our shadow selves through her own songs along with the tunes of Sasha Fierce (Beyoncé), the Thin White Duke (David Bowie), and Camille (Prince).

"An anarchist streak still runs through me," says Rizo, the singer-sophisticate who was once a teenage punk rocker. "I love the idea of claiming something that's uncool and making it authentic."

To that end, the NYC-based artist has earned a name for herself by transforming nightclub-pop into experiences that are more soulful, more theatrical. A provocateur with an electric wit, Rizo is a vessel for the spirits of Edith Piaf and Freddie Mercury.

The New York Times once referred to Rizo (né Amelia Zirin-Brown) as "a formidable belter who can sustain phrases and notes even when sprawled on her back on a piano and scissoring her legs." They're not alone in that enthusiasm. Rizo - who released "Indigo," her second album, in 2017 - has collaborated with Moby, Reggie Watts, and Yo-Yo Ma, the latter on his Songs of Joy & Peace album, which won a Grammy Award.

Taking a cue from Piaf, Rizo fully embraces the role of chanteuse. In recordings, she is a mysterious figure, a siren ushering you through tableaus of heartbreak, lust, and the murkiness in between. Live, she is an eyeful. "Freddie Mercury embodied songs with his voice and body," she says, admiringly. Like the Queen singer, she too can make even the simplest sentiment feel voluminous.

Rizo recently released her newest music video "Under" from her most recent album Indigo.

$35 cover charge. $60 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.
