February in NYC theatre!

This month we recommend 2 shows for you. Tickets are fairly inexpensive if you book them through TDF ($20ish). Make sure to follow us on Twitter/Instagram (@REtheatreNYC) for impromptu show recommendations!


@ The Soho Playhouse
 until Feb. 18

Josephine is a solo show by Tymisha Harris that tracks the life of the great dancer and activist, Josephine Baker. Though the set and lights are sparse, Harris' performance, choreography, and costumes explode like fireworks in this moving and exciting 75 minute journey. 

Produced by Dynamite Lunchbox & Soho Playhouse
Performed by Tymisha Harris
Written by Tod Kimbro
Directed by Michael Marinaccio
Production Stage Manager: Lindsay Taylor


[PORTO] @ WP Theater until Feb. 25

[PORTO] is a journey through the life and mind of a single woman in Brooklyn (most likely Bushwick or Williamsburg) who frequents a hipster bar that screams "gentrification." It is a story about battling the various contradictions about loving and hating things simultaneously. Can we have it both ways?
