Lena Dunham: Your Black Friend The black members from their own improv troupes join forces and transform your conversations with your Black friends into art.

Madeline begins her performances with a tailored, interactive moment with you, the audience, and ascends to a higher place of laughter—complete with the manic-moxie of a first date, the flirtiness of a spontaneous 1:1 with your work crush, and the worthiness of a life filled with love. Whether you’re looking for naughty, nice, or niche, you’ll be spellbound by one of her shows—which have been called “fun,” “hilarious,” “a tad horny for my taste,” and “completely inappropriate for people who aren’t fun.”

Ever wanted to know what in the world is really going on in a telenovela? Well, Sabado Picante is here to tell you all about it–in Spanish. But if you don’t know Spanish, don’t worry. The performers take an audience suggestion and make it pretty clear what sort of chaos and drama is unfolding right before your eyes. There’s passion, there’s love, there’s betrayal, and of course, an unplanned pregnancy. It’s 15 minutes of high drama that only a telenovela can deliver! Cast: Erick Acuña, Daniel Barrera, Gaby Corcoran, Elizabeth Cutler, Ceci De Robertis, Analia Gomez Vidal, Matt Mansfield, Spencer Orenstein, David Gavin Steib, Heather Marie Vitale
