Check out our 2014 Spring Season!

University Settlement's Performance Project is a public performance project that finds concrete ways to reestablish and articulate the importance of the arts within the education system and the community at large. Performances include established, new and emerging artists. We are committed to creatively incorporating artists into programming at University Settlement, including our after-school programs, The Door, the Houston Street Center and the Beacon. Artists can work with specific programs or age groups and propose participant workshops, professional development trainings, community events or interactive art making experiences.

This modern language riff on Shakespeare's classic romp Twelfth Night is set among the inhabitants of the Lower East Side. Real estate developers, displaced street artists and musicians, personal assistants and longtime residents of the neighborhood trying to find their way back home; these are the tour guides to our Illyria. New York City, with its rich and colorful neighborhood history, provides the backdrop for three intersecting tours with visits to a number of local establishments.

Tours will depart from 3 different locations in close proximity to LES subway lines. You should receive an email from within 24 hours after you purchase tickets with your tour guide assignment and meeting location. The show will run rain or shine, so please be prepared for the weather outdoors and wear comfortable walking shoes. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before curtain; tours will depart promptly at show time.

Learn more about the production by visiting Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant's website.

"If you are interested in adventure, surprise, historical trivia or eating cake, this show is for you!" -New York Theatre Review

"Made me think about the history of the locations in that area, but also rendered them new and exciting."
