Maxamoo

Maxamoo We love theater, especially theater beyond Broadway, and performance in New York City. Subscribe to our podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.

New York City is the greatest city in the world for attending the theater and performance events. The variety and quality of performing arts here are unparalleled. This is a virtue and a curse. It is difficult to navigate the seemingly infinite number of productions, the multiple ticket selling websites, and the endless reviews and listings. Maxamoo’s podcast offers independent reviews and diverse perspectives on theater beyond Broadway, alternative comedy, performance art, cabaret, and independent music. We cut through the chaos and deliver the bottom line for must see shows in New York City.

Mission: Champion awesome arts and culture
