THE HOUSE OF SPEAKEASY IS A HOME FOR CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF A LITERARY KIND: A PLACE WHERE AUTHORS AND THEIR AUDIENCES COME TOGETHER IN INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINING WAYS. MORE
Dear friends of House of SpeakEasy,
House of SpeakEasy has had a great year, with sold-out shows, brilliant lineups, and rapt audiences for our Seriously Entertaining speakers. And now we, and you, get to take a little time off: go to the beach, see Shakespeare in the park, snooze in a hammock, fight the traffic on the LIE. We’ve all earned it.
But never fear, we’ll be back in the fall and busier than ever, with three shows (instead of our usual two) at Joe’s Pub. Tickets go on sale in August; if you join House of SpeakEasy today you’ll enjoy our members’ priority booking period, as well as news about show lineups and other activities.
ALL 2016 SHOWS HELD AT JOE’S PUB at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette St, NYC 10003. If a show is sold out, check our website again in a few days, as extra tickets sometimes become available closer to show date. Join our mailing list for further information.
