New York City Mainstage

Ruthless Acts of Kindness is a wild, hilarious romp through the most perilous dilemma of the modern era: Dealing with Other People. In a world where buying a cup of coffee spins us into an existential crisis and the only relief is dissociative fantasy, this 6-person cast sings, dances, and improvises their way through an exciting evening of barbershop quartets, bizarre subway encounters, and singing grandfather clocks. Dodgeballs, clowns, and spooky lanterns abound in this immersive 100-minute sketch comedy and improv revue. Join us down the manhole!
