As always, expect an astounding array of special guests each month. DON'T QUIT YOUR NIGHT JOB -- where Broadway and improv meet... and make out!
DON'T QUIT began in 2006 as a one-off benefit at Joe's Pub, which grew into ten sold out months. A commercial off-Broadway production followed in 2007; subsequently, DQYNJ has played sold out runs at the Zipper Factory, Julia Miles Theater and Le Poisson Rouge.
Over the years, DON'T QUIT has welcomed an extraordinary range of entertainers: Huey Lewis, Hank Azaria, Julianna Margulies, Michael McKean, Marc Shaiman, Alicia Witt, Marvin Hamlisch, Anthony Rapp, Sara Ramirez, George Wendt, Bebe Neuwirth, David Hyde Pierce, Julie White, Patrick Wilson, Andrea Martin, Kelli O'Hara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mo Rocca and Josh Gad are just a few of the many guests who have appeared on the show.
Proceeds benefit Open Doors, the Theatre Development Fund's arts mentoring program for high school students. Started by playwright Wendy Wasserstein, its goal is to explore the relevance of theatre in the lives of today's youth. DON'T QUIT is proud to have raised over $30,000 for Open Doors since 2006.
