A rotating cast of comedians create a fake religious service of a fake religion on the spot based on YOUR suggestions. Complete with a fake sermon, fake scripture, fake kids' program, a full fake church choir and special guests, "Fake Church" is the one of a kind comedy show to help get you through these difficult times. What fake church will we be this week? The Fake Church of Iceland? The Fake Church of Broadway? The Fake Church of the Spatula? That’s up to YOU!
Eric Schmalenberger presents Blunderland, an evening of variety at the House of Yes, influenced by the whimsical, surreal, and psychedelic.

Come celebrate with a show that is hand-picked, juicy, and super fresh for your viewing pleasure. This is not a show for the meek and we serve nothing mild on this stage.

Insects, humans, and spiders are among the many anthropomorphed puppets featured in Puppetry Arts New York’s free public performance of a musical about faith and the suicide of a gay teenage boy, called "Anthropomorphic." Hosted at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, puppeteers will perform highlights from the musical using multiple styles of puppetry, including Bunraku, shadow, and rod puppetry. Collaborating with arranger and orchestrator Aaron Latina, vocalists will tell the story of Wesley, who having taken his life, falls into a purgatory of his mind where he is set on a journey to discover that he is someone to be loved.
After being wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls during the Satanic Panic witch-hunt era of the 80s and 90s, Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh and Anna Vasquez—four Latina lesbians—fight against mythology, homophobia and prosecutorial fervor in their struggle for exoneration in this riveting 'true crime' tale. This bizarre case is the first to be adjudicated under momentous new legislation: for the first time in U.S. history, wrongfully convicted innocents can challenge convictions based on debunked scientific evidence.
Winner of the Outfest Documentary Grand Jury Prize and the Frameline Outstanding Documentary Jury Award.

In the wake of an act of violence committed by charismatic high school senior Michael against devout freshman Liana, a handful of teens try to piece together the irrefutable truth; only to find that it may not exist. Weaving ancient tradition with now, #Blessed is a play about faith, rape culture, and what it means to be a young woman today. Premiering at FringeNYC this August, it is a modern day book of revelations. #Blessed in presented by Semicolon Theatre Company, a company run entirely by artists twenty-one and younger.
