A Class Act

Until September 4, 2016

Attorney and playwright Norman Shabel returns with his thrilling new courtroom drama following its world premiere in March at the Playroom Theatre. Directed by Christopher Scott, A Class Act plays a limited run at New World Stages and provides a disturbing and timely exploration of legal America doing battle against big business, drawing on his own past experiences and news alike. While seven cut-throat lawyers on both sides of a class action suit duke it out in a closed courtroom, we are forced to ask ourselves; who are the real winners here?

Helder Guimaraes: Verso

September 19, 2016-January 15, 2017

One of the world's most prodigious close-up magician's lands off-Broadway this fall for a limited three-month engagement that is set to make the area even more magical than before! His new show Verso follows his sold-out engagement Nothing To Hide, and premiered in his home country of Portugal earlier this year. A born illusionist, his magical talents first came to the fore at the tender age of three, when at kindergarten he managed to make candies appear for his friends!
