Jun-24-18 04:00 PM Brooklyn Generator Info for The Tank Website for The Brooklyn Generator The Brooklyn Generator comes to The Tank! Now in its 6th Season, we are excited to bring our new play generation project to The Tank. The Brooklyn Generator is the creation of Erin Mallon and Bixby Elliot. Originally started by Erin when she began making plays back in 2010 with a rotating group of 6 playwrights and 12 actors who gathered once a month on a Friday night to create six 10-minute plays in less than two days. Erin continued this way for 2 years and they collectively wrote about 140 short plays. Then, after a hiatus, Bixby and Erin put their heads together and asked each other "how can we adapt this model to support the creation of full-length plays?" Cut to June 2014 when they re-launched The Brooklyn Generator with six great playwrights. The Generator supports each other over a six month period during which each playwright takes a turn being "Playwright-of-the-Month," bringing actors and directors to the table to create brand new full-length plays in less than 30 days. Six seasons later they are still going strong. The Brooklyn Generator has been home to the following artists: Mallery Avidon, Eboni Booth, Ed Cardona Jr., Guadalís Del Carmen, Bixby Elliot, Georgina Escobar, Ken Greller, Amina Henry, Stephen Kaplan, Erin Mallon, Sarah Matusek, Julian J. Mesri, Eric John Meyer, Charlie O'Leary, Noah T.

Jun-28-18 09:30 PM La Maupin Julie d'Aubigny. Swordswoman. Opera Singer. Rogue. Notorious bisexual. In La Maupin this creature of legend lives again, in a fast-paced musical adventure.

But under the legend there is a woman before her time. A woman trying to navigate an austere world that never quite made sense to her. Accounts vary; was she a lunatic or a martyr? A hero or a cautionary tale? Only one fact goes undisputed about Julie d'Aubigny, La Maupin: She is a legend.

Jul-08-18 04:00 PM A Mess Don't worry, Asher's still a mess. In this new solo show, Asher explores some things that have been rattling around in his head that may make sense to others and may not, there's really only one way to find out. That's just kind of how mental illness feels. Hear stories about quitting jobs, taking on goals well out of your reach, mortality, dating with depression, and how long you can go to the bathroom and it still be socially acceptable. This show, much like Asher himself, may be a bit of a mess, and he hope you're ok with that. Cause he is. Mostly."
