  • Funny Never Gets Old/Funny Women Of A Certain Age"If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the behind any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”Carole Montgomery creator of Funny Women of A Certain AgeWhat 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.With two TV specials on Showtime and a third TV special about to be filmed, this show is not to be missed! Featuring a rotating cast of some of the best female comics of a certain age!**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

  • There Will Be No Miracles Here | Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
  • Tonight Mike Daisey tells a delicate, intricately braided story of found families, old grudges, and metaphysics made tangible in flesh and blood. An intricate heist story will be told that challenges our sense of what is real and what is not, all set against the  impossible dancing on the head of a pin on a hot summer night.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 here. 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 ArtsClick here to view the program(This link will take you to the program for the most recent Mike Daisey event.
