As most of you are aware, New York City will require proof of vaccination for indoor performances beginning September 13th. We will be enforcing this policy for all upcoming performances, and ask that all audience members, regardless of vaccination status, remain masked. All staff and performers will be vaccinated, performers may not be masked. Audience can provide proof of vaccination with a government issued I.D. along with a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or the Excelsior Pass App. We are navigating this day to day just like all of you so please be patient with staff when you attend your next Brick event. We love all of you.
Ranked Choice Dating is an interactive theatrical video game where you’ll try to score a hot date with NYC’s steaming mayoral candidates. Will they stay the night? Or will you get stopped and frisked? You’ll make choices that test your wit, charm, and lack of consideration for human life to reach one of 10 possible endings.

AMANDA ARIEL PEGGY XELLER
Written and Performed by Amanda Xeller
Action, Mess, Love, and Ass. Character Comedian, Amanda Xeller, presents new raw and physical pieces of performative debauchery. You might get splashed?
Featuring original music and madness, H Y P E R F A N T A S I A is a transdisciplinary sci-fi fantasy drag cabaret that begins at the Big Bang and culminates in queer utopia. Hosted by Tiresias, the blind prophet of the Underworld, this miniature epic draws on new evolutionary theories and ancient queer wisdom to dismantle the survival-of-the-fittest paradigm in celebration of extravagance, impracticality, inefficiency, and camp.
?!:New Works is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
