The rumors are true: This week’s Weird and Wonderful really does feature a show performed in the comfort of your own bathroom. The assortment of oddities doesn’t end there, though. From an immersive burlesque reimagining of a classic opera to an interactive experience that turns you into a temporary super villain, the weirdest, most wonderful goings-on in NYC are here for you.

Teknopolis 2019
Brooklyn, Clinton Hill

“Teknopolis” is an interactive technology extravaganza. Feel free to wander through multiple floors of multi-sensory installations, experiment with augmented reality, and/or dance like a maniac as you build your own beats.


The End of the World Bar and Bathtub
Your Bathtub (yes, we’re serious)

“The End of The World Bar and Bathtub” is a gripping play about conviction and choice that just so happens to take place in your bathroom. Just make sure to clean your tub before the cast gets there.

Carmen to Havana and Back
Manhattan, Downtown
Immersive, Dance

Inspired by 1950s Havana, this fully-immersive experience is “Carmen” like you’ve never seen it before: guests are even encouraged to wear their swankiest 50s attire while they sip their complimentary (!) cocktails.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Manhattan, Downtown

Put on your dancing shoes: The world-renowned Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is headed back to the Joyce with two unique programs of contemporary dance.

The Rogues Gallery
Brooklyn, Clinton Hill

“The Rogues Gallery” casts you in the role of an infamous villain and lets you determine your own fate for the evening. In other words, you can finally test out a career as a super villain — no tights required.

Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish
Manhattan, Midtown
Off-Broadway, Musical

This Yiddish-language production of “Fiddler on the Roof” brings the timeless story to the stage in a whole new way. Don’t worry — there are English supertitles, so your schlep to the theater will be worth it.

55 Shades of Gay
Manhattan, Downtown
Off-Broadway, Play, Burlesque

Written by acclaimed Kosovar playwright Jeton Neziraj, “55 Shades of Gay” is a thought-provoking, wickedly funny contemporary burlesque story about LGBTI politics in the Balkans and Europe.
