Clive Ramage

The wonderful thing about Van Gogh is that his story gives all struggling artists a great sense of hope. That all the work and hardship will someday be worthwhile. #VGFY brings Vincent’s story to life before your eyes like no book or documentary can. Warm, inspiring and very touching. If you love Van Gogh you will love this show.

Desperately Seeking the Exit All-Star Reading

Saturday, May 19, 2018, 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM $20.00

In 2007, Peter Michael Marino wrote the musical version of the Madonna movie Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the hit songs of Blondie. The mega-musical opened on London’s West End…and closed a month later. WHOOPS! Desperately Seeking the Exit is Pete’s critically acclaimed true story of the making and unmaking of his notorious flop that played everywhere from the USA to the UK to Australia. At this special reading, the show gets a new twist as his roller coaster tale is joined by the talents of:

Chanteuse & Impressionist Christina Bianco

Time Out NY theater critic Adam Feldman

Broadway & Solo Star Alison Fraser

Noted storyteller David Lawson

…and more to be announced soon.

Full bar. Two drinks suggested. Ryan’s Daughter is two blocks from the Q train at 86th Street, a few blocks from 4,5,6 at 86th…or Lyft and Uber!

“A merciless sendup of the business of art.” – NYTimes

“A remarkably positive story.” – BroadwayBaby UK

Pub Theatre Events


Plays written for and performed in a pub, specifically in our private bar on the second floor. Throughout the year you will want to come to experience theater in this unique setting and imbibe while you watch the works of a wide range of artists. At the end of every summer, our support of this art culminates in the presentation of our “Ryan’s Daughter Appreciation Award,” a cash prize given to a worthy participant in Origin’s annual “1st Irish Theatre Festival.” This festival is dedicated to works by artists from Ireland and Ryan’s Daughter has been a proud sponsor since its inception.
