Awkward Girl, Hannah Rud
Awkward Girl is a one woman storytelling piece. Hannah explores her own personal journey of self-love and self acceptance all the while throwing in Disney references and embracing her own brand of awkward.

Letters to West 113th, Newman Mentalism
Join mentalist Jeff Newman as he uses his unique skills of trickery and deception to recreate the act of Thomas Whitford, a small-time magician known for performing incredible – and maybe even supernatural – spectacles. Gasp in amazement as you discover what it was like to be in the crowd at Whitford’s final performance, hear the story of Whitford’s tragic loss and experience his confrontation with the legendary Harry Houdini himself.
