Blackbox Playlist Returns on Saturday 2.10!

From the producers:

ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10TH AT 8:00PM, the actors will show up to the Cobra Club and sit in the audience. At the beginning of each scene, the song that inspired it will begin playing, and the two actors – who have NEVER met – have the length of the song to set up the stage, discuss the play, practice, prepare, etc.

But once the song finishes – whether they’re ready or not – the lights dim and the show begins!

Join us at The Cobra Club in Bushwick on Saturday, February 10th at 8:00pm for a night of unforgettable theater.

Due to the nature of this production, BLACKBOX PLAYLIST is ONE NIGHT ONLY.

TICKETS: $10 online (fees included), $15 at-the-door

CREATED BY Matt Davidson
PRODUCED BY Matt Davidson & Jesse Cramer

Sketch Comedy on Wednesday 1/31!

Sunday School Dropouts are the parts of your social media feed you love: celebrity silliness, awkward situations that are hilarious when they happen to someone else, and a little satire disguised by puppies and unicorns. But not puppy unicorns, because if we had anything that cute, we’d want it all for ourselves.
We want to be E!, but we’re really just Bravo. Except no white guys.

Bands on Sunday 1.14!

Doors at 8:30, no cover!
