Come one and come all to celebrate and support WOW Café Theatre!
This will be a night of music, burlesque, and merriment to support WOW’s ongoing efforts to give voice and space to womyn and/or trans artists and to aid them in covering the rising costs of running such a vital downtown institution.
We will have a donation-suggested bar as well as beer sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Co and live performances to be announced in the coming weeks.

WOW Café Theatre is “the oldest collectively run performance space for women and/or trans artists in the known universe.” They started as an international women’s theatre festival in October of 1980. Over the course of eleven days, 36 shows from 8 countries were performed for hungry New York lesbians. Within 18 months the group had a permanent space at 330 e. 11th street, where they began the beautiful monster that is WOW today: a year-round festival of women’s and transgender peoples’ performance. In 1984 (or thereabouts), WOW moved to the 1,400ft loft space that they inhabit today at 59-61 east 4th street.
