NOT THE ONE: A LOVE STORY
With an open mind, heart, and vagina, Time Out New York’s “LGBT Comedy Best Bet” Mindy Raf
demolishes the romantic comedy and the roles we play in it. In this critically acclaimed solo show, Raf demystifies love, loss, and sexuality, mixes in some mansplaining and weed lube stories, and engages her vulnerable, razor-sharp storytelling style to face the complexities of modern love and leave us asking, “could I ever do that?”
Written and Performed by Mindy Raf
Directed by Tara Elliott
November 29th and 30th. 8pm.

_____ IS OUR GOD: STANLEY TUCCI
Come join in worship with other devotees of America’s favorite shiny headed Oscar nominee! With a combination of vibrant song and prayer, spontaneous testimonials and a creepy (but kissable) mannequin head, Tucci Disciples Natasha Vaynblat, Jessie Jolles, and Katie Hartman lead the absurdly reverent service.
Stanley has touched us all. That promotion at work? That was Tucci rewarding you for all your hard work. When your hamster died? That was Tucci helping you learn hard life lessons. When there was only one pair of footsteps in the sand? That was Tucci carrying you. Between select hymns, Tucci trivia, and reading from the book of award acceptance speeches, audience members will be encouraged to jump up and testify with their own “Touched by Tucci” moment.” With special guests Dan Chamberlain (The Tonight Show, Broad City, Above Average) and Sachi Ezura (The Rundown). Also featuring Mallory Muratore (NYCF, HuffPo, New Greta) and Seamus Branch (Bozeman High School Live).
Tuesday, November 14. Doors at 7:00, show at 7:30.
Cloud City, yours mine & ours, and New Release present a one night only benefit art show to raise funds for aid in Puerto Rico. Over forty artists from various mediums come together in a group exhibition of resistance and celebration. All artworks will be priced at $400 or less and will be able to be taken home the same night.
100% of the proceeds will go to Off the Grid, a Puerto Rican organization focusing on water purifiers, small solar panels, solar lights, inverters, mosquito nets, solar radios, headlamps, flashlights and other items that will help people and communities to be self-sufficient as the island struggles to regain its infrastructure.
Participating artists to date: Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Justin Adian, Dan Angeli, Philip Ashley, Jason Barr, Elizabeth Beeby, Todd Bienvenu, Rosa Bozhkov, Janine Biunno, Courtney Childress, Michael Childress, Shamus Clisset, Jeremy Couillard, Kerry Cox, Rob Davis, Steve DiBenedetto, Danny Gibson, Elizabeth Glaessner, Matt Gliva, Erin Goldberger, Dev Harlan, Max Heiges, Cindy Hinant, Nicki Ishmael, Roberto Jamor, Joe Kay, Emma Kohlman, Kelsey Knutson, Aaron Krach, Alison Kudlow, Adam Lehrer, Rachel Libeskind, Timm Mettler, Grace Metzler, Matt Mignanelli, Jay Miriam, Anahid Mishek, Katy Mixon, Nicole Mourino, Greg Allan Mueller, Julia Norton, Brian Ormond, JJ PEET, Andrew Pope, Andy Ralph, Josh Reames, Hannah Rowan, Aviva Rowley, Nick Rymer, Yves Scherer, Jeff Schwarz, Lauren Seiden, Emma Stern, B.
