We proudly present our Cabaret & Beyond Series @ The VG Lounge beginning July 27th to November 4th while the main stage is dark for a monumental restoration project. During this time, we are introducing the most amazing talents as they celebrate musical theater, all genres of music, as well as improv, comedy, drag, fashion shows and more. Over 80 shows to choose from! Seating is limited.
The VG Lounge is in the lower level of the lobby area, which requires the use of a staircase.
An electric powered chair lift is available for access to and from the lounge area for those who may need assistance.



Check out the best restaurants in town, who are providing specials for you to

Genre: One-Person Show, Comedy, Book Reading

An evening that will make you laugh, cry, and think about the truly odd times we live in. Julio grew up on Staten Island and has been a loud champion for the borough in Hollywood, in his work, and in his life. He is the director of “Team Marco,” an independent family film that he shot entirely on the Island. Heralded my Leonard Maltin as “a life-affirming feel-good movie” and applauded by the New York Times for his “golden view” of his hometown, the movie was picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Film and Hulu. A writer, director, and performer, Julio has mastered the mic at Caroline’s on Broadway, Gotham Comedy Club, the Comedy Store, and ACME Comedy Theater. His first one-man show “Julie from Staten Island” ran in Times Square’s Theater Row for two years. When the pandemic hit, Julio attracted worldwide attention for his essay “Prepare for the Ultimate Gaslighting,” which circled the globe in 48 hours, reaching over 21 million readers in 29 countries. He joins us at the VG Lounge for this special evening to tell stories, laugh with us about the madness of the modern world, and share selections from his new book, “Please Unsubscribe, Thanks!” from Simon & Schuster.
