New Musical Disaster “Late with Lance!” from Creator of “Desperately Seeking the Exit” March 5-29 Peter Michael Marino’s newest old creation is here.

This solo show/talk show spoof with a musical theater twist features original song parodies, The Sound of Music performed in five minutes, an homage to the film Fame, and many more ridiculous surprises.

A quick trip out to the less-than-a-year-old FDR Four Freedoms Park designed by Louis Kahn could be a nice thing on a summer's day (we've only been in frigid temps.) Make the event extra touristy-fun by riding the tram over from 59th St and 1st Ave. It's about a 5 minute walk on the Roosevelt Island side & the only cost is your metrocard expense on the tram.
