This summer, together forever, we shall celebrate the ginormous renovations at AS220’s Empire Street complex. Come participate in the AS220 All Access Campaign fundraising efforts through the power of ALL DAY LONG PARTYING! Over twenty performers will rollick the Main Stage and Black Box. An art fair will convene in Psychic Readings and outside on the street with over twenty vendors who will peddle their miraculous wares. There will be food and drink specials like “watermelon sangria” or an “Oh-boy-oh-boy-oh-boy that’s a good clam margarita” (the latter one’s made up). It’s the summer so let it be known that there will be an outdoor bar and seating and some fun-time summery installations. Bring a bathing suit, because we’re busting out the inflatable pools. Experience “windoughnuts” where residents of Floor 3 send down doughnuts in a basket to the street. Get wet. See friends. Shake hands with strangers. Become a stranger to yourself. Just have some fun, ok?

If you are interested in vending your original art at our art fair, please email Birdplayart@gmail.com.

Awkward Sex and the City @ Black Box Theater @ AS220
Sep 20 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Portraits Portraits

Five comedians divulge their most intimate and awkward sexual and dating experiences packed into a tight 90 minute show for your viewing pleasure. Kinky, we know. Holding back no punches this gang breaks barriers about sex, relationships, and dating taboos while making you laugh hysterically. The show pairs sexual inclusion with humor swimmingly and sheds light on the awkward universal experience we all know and love (for the most part). Awkward Sex… and the City has sold out multiple venues, and received glowing reviews from The Boston Globe, Brightest Young Things, Bust Magazine, The Washington Post and more! If you ever felt weird about sex, sexting, flirting, what have you, never fret, Natalie Wall. Bobby Hankinson, Anita Flores, Karolena Theresa and Jen Keefe will make you way better about yourself, and all your life choices.

“It is a storytelling ode to the universal experience of sex as awkward, weird, silly, hot, and awesome (sometimes all at once, sometimes distinctly not).” – BUST

“If you’ve never felt like a Carrie, a Miranda, a Samantha, or a Charlotte, you’ll probably feel a kinship with the hilarious ladies of Awkward Sex… and the City.” – Washingtonian

“The voyeur within will delight.” -Refinery 29

“The show, a spinoff of her blog by the same name, asks comedians to recall those squirmy sexual encounters they’ve locked in some inner shame box, and share them with an audience. It seems like torture, but it’s more like wine-soaked catharsis for everyone involved.” – The Cut
