New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

It’s 2013, Obama has just been re-elected, and The Republican Party finally realizes it has a problem with race. In an attempt to win the 2016 presidential election, the GOP backs a candidate who is a mixture of every race on earth. Christopher Chen's wild and surreal comedy skewers all political parties to the point it becomes indiscernible of what is satire – and what is today’s frightening reality. This production is part of The College of Performing Arts' School of Drama New Visions Directing Festival.
