"The Fantasticks"

20at20: Off-Broadway for $20
Various Venues
Wed, Jan 18 – Mon, Feb 6

Hindsight is 20/20—you probably should have bought those tickets sooner. But if the show’s not sold out, you’re in luck. Get $20 tickets to off-Broadway shows 20 minutes prior to show time. All you have to do is say the magic words…

Ghetto Klown
Repertorio Español
Thurs, Jan 19 – Sat, Jan 21

After a successful Broadway run and before his Colombian tour, John Leguizamo performs a special set of Ghetto Klown, entirely in Spanish. The New Yorker recounts his teenage years in Queens, the early days of his acting career, the outrageous downtown theater scene, and many uproarious anecdotes from Hollywood.

"Gob Squad's Kitchen"

Gob Squad’s Kitchen
Public Theater
Thurs, Jan 19 – Sun, Feb 5

It’s 1965 and the excitement is just about to start. Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good), takes the hand of Andy Warhol himself for a trip back to the underground cinemas of New York City. The German/British collective reconstructs Warhol’s films in the quest to illuminate the mod era for a new generation.
