Event Description

To begin and end the world as we know it...

A veritable who's who of NYC performance promises to be on parade for 4 action-packed nights in the style of the original PS122 Benefits.

Expect the unexpected as the LES Lounge comes alive at 6pm nightly in the downstairs space, providing a cozy atmosphere for personalities of the past, present, and future to come together to mingle, reminisce, perform and subterfuge with Lounge host, legendary Stage Manager to the stars, Lori E. Seid. The lounge will feature a slideshow of 20 years of performance photography by the renowned Dona Ann McAdams as well as signature refreshments, music and more!

As a pre-show activity, Praxis offers exclusive tours through PS122 history and unseen spaces and Sarah Maxfield harvests memories after the shows and the party continues in the lounge til it's past everyone's bedtime.
