Baby Wants Candy

Performances by musical improvisational troupe, which the New York Times hailed as “Critics’ Pick! Truly Amazing!” TimeOut NY named “Best Visiting Comedy!” and The Onion noted as “Highly Recommended!” The group has performed over 2,000 completely improvised musicals around the world. The show begins with the cast asking the audience for a suggestion of a musical title that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a piano, the first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening’s show. It’s a roller coaster ride of off-the-cuff choreographed dance numbers, rhyming verses, and witty jaw-dropping comedy. Each performance is its own opening and closing night, and by design every show is completely unique and a once in a life time premiere.

Workshop: Tuesday, April 2 at 4:30 p.m.
The Palestinian Hip Hop scene is proud to announce the release of DAM’s second international album "Debka on the Moon", one of the most talked about albums of this year. DAM has been stirring a lot of excitement internationally as the leading group from the new buoyant Palestinian rap scene. They bring a truly unique voice to the scene with a vibrant message of peace. DAM means "immortal" in Arabic. It also means "blood" in Hebrew, and is the abbreviation of “Da Arabian MC's”. DAM is the first and leading Palestinian Rap/Hip Hop group, formed by Tamer Nafar, Suhell Nafar and Mahmud Jrere out of the slums of Lod, a mixed Arab-Jewish town near Jerusalem, where the group grew up. DAM's music is a unique East/West fusion, organically combining rap with Middle Eastern pop influences and rhythms, creating a powerful message of freedom.
