Originally delayed by Hurricane Sandy, these shows have persevered and come back stronger than ever. WORLD PREMIERES!
Can You Call My Mom?
This stand up show will remind you why growing up sucked, how us small town girls cope in the big big city and get to the bottom of vajazzling once and for all. Jamie LeeLo will make asthma attacks sexy again and talk about boobs at least twice- so you’ve got that going for you.

About The Tank’s 10th Anniversary Season:
The Tank’s 10th Anniversary is not only cause for celebration but also an exploration of the values that will continue to propel us forward for another 10 years. At select anniversary events and donation drives through May 2013, The Tank will toast to its services of support, empowerment, opportunity and access for the New York City arts community.
Accessibility isn’t a privilege, it’s a starting point. For early career artists, it’s a curated, guided experience: a nurturing place to get your feet wet and find your audience. For the more experienced crafters, it’s a financially risk-free place to play, in a theater with a full light/sound/projection package. For audiences, it’s an economic alternative to the bright light ‘premium-seat’ attractions one block away. And with year-round, open submissions and no application or acceptance fees, this access is non-exclusive. The Tank has been open for business for 10 years and a tax deductible donation today will make it possible to remain an accessible resource for ten more.
Tickets ranging from $7-$15 are on sale now. Pre-show reception with food by Qdoba at 7 pm, show starts at 8 pm. Join us on December 15, 2012 to witness these amazing pieces of artwork and cast members live!
Songs for a New World is a popular song-cycle with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. In this song cycle, Brown invites us to examine what drives us to make decisions in our lives and discover how those decisions affect the rest of our lives. Similar to a compilation of short stories, SFANW places an array of characters in life altering situations threaded together by themes of fear, lost love, independence, and the reliance of others.
In BOMP’s production, we invite you into the intimate world of each character, sharing personal stories of these people caught in pivotal moments of choice. In the game of life, we never know how the dice will roll, what cards we’ll be dealt, or the implications of the space we find ourselves in. We’ve either got to fight to make it or take the action necessary to change our situation. Watch as the characters fight to make the right choices for where they find themselves in their lives. Each story holds relatable truths to our own lives and the current world climate making for a performance any audience member will connect with.
The amount of non-union talent in this city is amazing, so we’ve cast the show twice! You don’t want to miss the strong solo and ensemble work that these casts are producing. With strong choices and even stronger voices, we are sure this is one show you will not want to miss this holiday season!

Coming to the Tank April 27th, 2012: NARKISSOS
Narkissos is a multimedia art song recital directed by Ted Gorodetzky, featuring vocalist Daniel Neer and harpist Alyssa Reit. This performance for voice and harp investigates the mythological figures of Narcissus, Echo, and Nemesis, and explores the multi-layered themes of narcissism and self-entitlement in contemporary America.
With seven world premiere compositions by Chandler Carter, Martha Sullivan, Robinson McClellan, Jonathan David, Lauren Bernofsky, and Scott Gendel, we’re very excited to welcome Narkissos to the Tank!
