It's hard to believe but our annual show is five years old! What started out as a crazy, impossible idea is now an annual tradition, and this year will be bigger and better than ever!

Our labor of love has expanded from a simple show into a weeklong arts festival, showcasing the astonishing talent of the professional artists who call Great Performances home. 

We have world-class artists working with us, many with big time credits. You don't necessarily know it, but you've seen our floor staff on Broadway in Once, Cabaret, Rent, Camelot, and Les Misérables. You've seen them on television on The Blacklist, Person of Interest, Mr. Robot, and Elementary. These wonderful artists donate their time and talent every year to help produce the 90 Square Arts Festival. 

This year our 90X Mainstage show will be the Tony Award-winning Urinetown. A dark musical comedy set in a dystopian future where water is scarce. One man leads a revolution against the evil corporation controlling the water supply. It's irreverent, fun, and just about the funniest night you can have in a theatre. 

Our 90X Cabaret night will be an immersive theatre experience, where you'll hear some of the best singers in New York, while dance and theatrical effects happen all around you. It’s a not-to-be-missed experience. 

On the Cabaret nights, there is also the 90X Food Fest. Select event chefs will prepare tasting plates of their own signature dishes for you using their personal recipes. You'll be able to taste the culinary talent of Great Performances!

On all the nights, at both the 90X Mainstage and the 90X Cabaret, there will be the 90X Gallery. This is a visual art galley showcasing the paintings, sculpture, photographs, and multimedia pieces created by the visual artists of GP, and they’re for sale!

All this is happening this coming February 10-13th, 2016, and we can't do it without your help. We are raising funds for the production on Kickstarter. We have had generous support from our community in the past, and we're turning to them again. As little as a dollar helps. No money changes hands if we don't meet our funding goals by our deadline, so please give what you can.
