Funny Never Gets Old

What began as a way to work with her friends has exploded on the comedy scene. When Carole (a veteran of the stand up scene for over 40 years) started, you would never see two female comics on the same show. Fast forward to today’s comedy scene and nothing has changed, even though there are way more women in comedy. Carole decided to do something about it. Her first Showtime special made history as the only comedy special to feature 6 female comics over the age of 50. In fact it was the network's highest rated comedy special of 2019. Two more have followed with more in the works for 2022!   Funny Never Gets Old will feature: Sandy Ehlers Marla Schultz Jane Gennaro   Note: line up is subject to change Streaming option available.

Message in a Bottle

It’s a surreal but true-to-life love story between a woman and a bottle of vodka, from the early days of awkward first love to the ultimate betrayal, and realization that life going forward isn’t just doable– it can be beautiful. Recommended by the New York Times in August 2019, and named one of the best shows of the month by Time Out NY. “In addition to being wildly funny, it’s an intimate and thoughtful show whose ingenious premise makes it both universally relatable and deeply personal… “Message in a Bottle” is a fresh and surprisingly life-affirming look into the life of an addict in her darkest hour.” -AllAboutSolo, 2019 “[T]he humor in the scenes belies the serious message… The result is a fun and moving show that resonates with the audience.” -StageBuzz, 2019 “[I]t is a truly incredible production.” -Commyounicate, 2019 Debuted as part of SOLOCOM 2018, and has been featured at Under St. Marks, the PIT, the Tank, QED Astoria, HACPAC, UCPAC, and SMUSH Gallery.

FROM THIS MOMENT YOU ARE CURSED Created and Performed by Mike DaiseyIn a searing evening Mike Daisey is the first theater artist in America to address the war in the Ukraine, starting from the indelible image of a Ukranian woman telling a Russian soldier to fill his pockets with sunflower seeds, so when he dies plants will bloom on his corpse. A night of stories of dark winds through the forests, terrifying Eastern European babcias, the return of the Cold War, and the price we pay for the monsters we fail to stake through the heart.Mike Daisey, who has been called “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by The New York Times, is the preeminent monologist in the American theater today.Praise for Mike Daisey at the Kraine:"He is outstanding. These were startling and stirring words, the kind that hogtie your attention. They are worth having Daisey, and live theater, back for."The New York Times"I felt home again—listening to a talented storyteller spin a version of a year not entirely unlike the one I had just spent, felt really, really good."The Washington Post"Amid all the laughs, there’s a lucid lesson—Mike Daisey singlehandedly redefines the concept of mansplaining. He strips the practice of its condescension and defensiveness and turns it into a conscientious and humble discipline of self-examination as a man."DC Metro Arts

Doug Smith: JEHOVAH BOY

JEHOVAH BOY is a stand-up/storytelling show where Doug Smith relays tales from his upbringing and eventual escape from the world’s most annoying doomsday cult, Jehovah’s Witnesses. After 20 years of knocking on doors, dreading Armageddon, and fantasizing about forbidden birthday cake, a family tragedy leads Doug to flee the organization, only to realize that undoing two decades of brain washing is easier said than done. With years of guilt, shame, and self destruction behind him, Doug is finally ready to share the truth about “the Truth” and his bumpy path to embracing life in the real world.

Funny Never Gets Old

What began as a way to work with her friends has exploded on the comedy scene. When Carole (a veteran of the stand up scene for over 40 years) started, you would never see two female comics on the same show. Fast forward to today’s comedy scene and nothing has changed, even though there are way more women in comedy. Carole decided to do something about it. Her first Showtime special made history as the only comedy special to feature 6 female comics over the age of 50. In fact it was the network's highest rated comedy special of 2019. Two more have followed with more in the works for 2022!   Funny Never Gets Old will feature: Sandy Ehlers Marla Schultz Jane Gennaro   Note: line up is subject to change Streaming option available.

Are Lauren and Vinny really in love, or is their connection just a mind game? Spanning from their teenage meeting at the University of Southern California to their early 30’s in the Hollywood machine, The Rhetoric of Us explores the deep connection between these two screenwriters as they struggle with career jealously, infidelity, grief, and their place in each others’ lives — or whether there should be a place at all.

Lone Star / Laundry & Bourbon

Lone Star: Two brothers Roy and Ray embark on an evening of drinking in the back of a cluttered old bar in West Texas. Roy, recently returned from a stint in Vietnam, regales his brother with tales of his exploits. Enter Cletis, an oblivious newlywed and master interloper intent to save his own skin from the fiery wrath of Roy’s rage. Through the course of this drunken evening, war will be fought, V8 engines will be reved, and a host of shocking revelations will unfurl themselves under the West Texas stars. Laundry and Bourbon: In a small West Texas town, the heat beats down upon Elizebeth Caulder’s front porch. Joined by best friend Hattie, the two fold laundry, sip bourbon, and gossip over the mundane inner workings of their tiny ecosystem.

Biting humor, hot tempers, and sweet nostalgia kick up the seemingly breezy lives of these Texas housewives to expose blistering truths under the Texas sun.

Message in a Bottle

It’s a surreal but true-to-life love story between a woman and a bottle of vodka, from the early days of awkward first love to the ultimate betrayal, and realization that life going forward isn’t just doable– it can be beautiful. Recommended by the New York Times in August 2019, and named one of the best shows of the month by Time Out NY. “In addition to being wildly funny, it’s an intimate and thoughtful show whose ingenious premise makes it both universally relatable and deeply personal… “Message in a Bottle” is a fresh and surprisingly life-affirming look into the life of an addict in her darkest hour.” -AllAboutSolo, 2019 “[T]he humor in the scenes belies the serious message… The result is a fun and moving show that resonates with the audience.” -StageBuzz, 2019 “[I]t is a truly incredible production.” -Commyounicate, 2019 Debuted as part of SOLOCOM 2018, and has been featured at Under St. Marks, the PIT, the Tank, QED Astoria, HACPAC, UCPAC, and SMUSH Gallery.

Mike Daisey: FROM THIS MOMENT YOU ARE CURSED

FROM THIS MOMENT YOU ARE CURSED Created and Performed by Mike DaiseyIn a searing evening Mike Daisey is the first theater artist in America to address the war in the Ukraine, starting from the indelible image of a Ukranian woman telling a Russian soldier to fill his pockets with sunflower seeds, so when he dies plants will bloom on his corpse. A night of stories of dark winds through the forests, terrifying Eastern European babcias, the return of the Cold War, and the price we pay for the monsters we fail to stake through the heart.Mike Daisey, who has been called “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by The New York Times, is the preeminent monologist in the American theater today.Praise for Mike Daisey at the Kraine:"He is outstanding. These were startling and stirring words, the kind that hogtie your attention. They are worth having Daisey, and live theater, back for."The New York Times"I felt home again—listening to a talented storyteller spin a version of a year not entirely unlike the one I had just spent, felt really, really good."The Washington Post"Amid all the laughs, there’s a lucid lesson—Mike Daisey singlehandedly redefines the concept of mansplaining. He strips the practice of its condescension and defensiveness and turns it into a conscientious and humble discipline of self-examination as a man."DC Metro Arts
