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

In today's episode, Jose Solís talks to musical theatre composer Jaime Lozano about his career, and how he went from disliking Jesus Christ Superstar when he was growing up in Monterrey, Mexico, to becoming one of the most prolific composers living in the United States. Lozano shares insights about his process and shares exclusive tracks from his upcoming album A Never-Ending Line.

If you’re in NYC don’t miss Jaime Lozano at The Green Room 42 on November 24, where he will present Jaime Lozano and the Familia: "Songs by an Immigrant", featuring special guests like Mauricio Martínez.

October Review – Sensory Immersive Shows and Off-Broadway Debuts

NEW EPISODE ALERT! 🔔 🔔 🔔

Nicole Serratore, Ben Ferber, and newcomer Linda Buchwald talk about 2 immersive shows and 2 shows Off-Broadway.

First up: we share our sensory experiences from the blindfolded, taste-and-scent-heavy Theatre in the Dark, presented by This Is Not A Theatre Company. It turns out we’re clumsy nervous wrecks!

We chat WP Theater’s very fun Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, and the politics of doing shocking things onstage.

We gush over podcast fave Will Arbery’s Heroes of the Fourth Turning Playwrights Horizons!

And we talk about the extremely weird and often charming dollscape that is Found at the cell, and how Nicole really pulled her weight in immersive improv.

And don’t forget: our next episode on 10/24 is our first Book Club! So pick up a copy of Anna Deavere Smith’s Letters to a Young Artist wherever books or audiobooks are sold. If you have anything you’d like us to talk about on that episode, tweet it at us or email it to us by 10/20!
