Not just a tumblr account but also 25 years of producing new theater in the Big Apple. We’ve got some amazingly talented friends (new and old) coming out to celebrate this occasion with us!

Like Heidi blickenstaff and Judith Blazer who are currently performing on our stage in Inner Voices:Solo Musicals. Both of these ladies and their performances blow us away! Check them out above.

Inner Voices performances end this Saturday but the party continues with a week-long Concert Series that will be bringing in boatloads of music and merriment.

Charles Busch, Julie Halston, Mario Cantone, Penny Fuller, Charles Strouse, Gregg Edelman, Karen Mason, The Gatlin Brother, Jamie deRoy, Sheldon Harnick and more take over our stage April 25 - May 1.
