This giant-by-our-standards 1,400-square-foot loft is the home of WOW, a womancentric, queer-friendly producing organization that has been programming a heavy rotation of solo shows, transgender burlesque and other experimental pieces since 1980. Split Britches did some of its (forgive the term) seminal work here, and almost every evening you can find some scrappy new work by a local female artist grabbing the space by the…ovaries.

What's on at WOW Café Theatre
Hamlet Isn't Dead mounts a rare production of Shakespeare's trio of history plays about the thorny patch of English history known as the War of the Roses. Robin Rightmyer directs, with an eye toward feminist readings.
The performers explore various types of "minority" in the dance-and-theater production 1001 Nights: A Rock Opera (Love Stories on Death Row). Structured with accounts of people throughout the world, the piece focuses on the American prison industry.
