Ars Nova announces a March and April lineup featuring exciting new comedy, music and theater programming.
Coming up in March and April:
(All shows are at 8pm unless otherwise noted)
Julie Goldman/Lady Gentleman (Thursday, 3/7; $15)
Award-winning comedian Julie Goldman returns to New York with her irreverent and outrageous comedy and music. Goldman takes her unique voice and vision of the world and offers it up in this fun, raucous, high impact night of stand-up and possibly Lesbian Folk rock music.
The Talkback (Tuesday, 3/12 and Wednesday, 3/13; $10)
Created & Performed by The Berserker Residents
The deranged windbags behind The Lapsburgh Layover return to the Nova with a strictly limited two-night engagement of their latest experiment! The Talkback is a discussion for the ages, a post-show aftermath, the theater after the Theater. Stick around, ask questions, and enjoy the incredible pomposity of The Berserker Residents.
Showgasm. (Thursday, 3/14 and Thursday, 4/4; $5)
What is Showgasm, you ask? It's a backless gown on Casual Friday, Southern women pre-gaming before a taping of The View, a Groupon to everywhere. Or more simply put, a raucous variety show with performances ranging from hilarious to titillating to utterly inappropriate. Come. You've never looked better!
Hosted by John Early. Performers for 3/14 include Neal Medlyn, Sara Schaefer, Varsity Interpretive Dance Squad and additional performers to be announced. Performers for 4/4 to be announced.
All Overett: The Songs of Adam Overett (Monday, 3/18; $15)

Quadruple threat Adam Overett puts on his composer hat for a single blow out concert event, bringing his patchwork of musical theater characters to life with the help of some of New York's best and most fearless performers!
