Judson Arts’ playwright development program selects one writer or writing team each month, offering 15 hours of free rehearsal time and space, and culminating in a Loft party packed with drinks, food, and a brand-spanking-new play or thing that looks nothing like a play. The art is often raw and unready, just how we like it.

Every Third Wednesday of each month:
Doors open at 55 Washington Square South at 7pm
Free drinks and vittles until the show at 8pm

This Month's Magic Time Happening

Virtual Memory

Wednesday, July 16
Doors at 7 ~ Performance at 8

At the age of 13, Ben Strothmann decided to keep a diary. He realized that if he didn’t, his memories could just as easily disappear into the ether. And so he endeavored to capture as many of them as possible so as to augment his memory. That diary has never been shared in a public forum — until now. Join Ben as he recounts first crushes, awkward coming of age moments, deep dark secrets, and a few things you might wish you could un-hear. Not suitable for children or Ben's family members.

Artist Bio:
Ben is either an actor who sings or a singer who acts. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has lived in New York City since 2000. Ben is also a drag queen (Honey LaBronx), a vegan cooking show host (VeganDragQueen.com), and host of the podcast Big Fat Vegan Radio. To pay the bills, Ben has been a portrait and theatrical photographer since 1995 (Playbill Broadway Yearbook, BroadwayWorld.com) and has spent a majority of the last decade following and documenting other performers. Tonight is first-ever attempt at a one-man show. Lucky you!
