Join artist/GFS founder, Seward Johnson, emcee Adam Weitz, and me for good company, good food, and good drinks in enchanting surroundings.

“Off the Top!” with Jason Kravits and special guest James Monroe Iglehart

A solo, improvised, musical-comedy high-wire act you’ve got to see to believe.

Whether you recognize him from Broadway (The Drowsy Chaperone, Relatively Speaking) or TV (Kimmy Schmidt, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Practice), you’ve never seen Jason Kravits quite like this. Jason invents an entire cabaret, from scratch—Every song, every lyric, every show-biz anecdote, humblebrag and overshare—made up, on the spot, based on your suggestions. Backed by Phil Orr & More, and featuring very special guests, it’s the show of a lifetime…every time!

With Tony Award Winner (ALADDIN), James Monroe Iglehart, currently starring in HAMILTON (Lafayette/Jefferson). James recently finished a stint with Lin Manuel Miranda’s FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME, so you know his improv chops are on point!

Angel Desai is one of the most consistently busy actors in NYC… in everything from plays (most recently INDIA PALE ALE at Manhattan Theater Club), to musicals (the Broadway revival of COMPANY) to screens large and small (JESSICA JONES, MADAM SECRETARY). On top of all that, she’s an accomplished jazz vocalist, pianist and violinist.
