Murder mysteries should be anything but silly. That’s the view espoused by Live In Theater Productions, the brainchild of prolific actor and playwright Carlo D'Amore. Eschewing the goofy tone of some other shows, Live In Theater plunges participants into cases that take their immersive details from unsolved, historical murders in New York. Showgoers make their way along the city streets where the real crimes once took place, interrogating actors playing roles ranging from 19th-century Irish slumlords to strung-out 1970s junkies. Each event plays out differently as the amateur sleuths weigh evidence, pursue leads, and finally find some use for their pocket-sized polygraphs, creating a one-of-a-kind adventure that earned a 2012 Drama Desk nomination for Unique Theatrical Experience.

CLOS Wine Bar owner and certified sommelier Mine Ayberk personally chooses every option on the bar's wine list, focusing especially on Old World, single-vineyard wines. As it turns out, Ms. Ayberk's selection has more wines than her bar has seats. With enough space for just under 20 guests, CLOS carries an intimate aura, surrounding visitors with warm tones, handcrafted finishings, and works from local artists. Clambering across the hardwood floors, the CLOS staff doles out specially prepared gourmet plates designed to enhance the wine-drinking experience. But much like its owner, the bar's staff members aren't just shadows in the background: each is a certified sommelier, and each speaks multiple languages. This means guests can enjoy some European pizzazz without having to join a pen-pal program for adults.

Founded in 1986 as a place for writers and performers to create and develop new work before a live audience, Dixon Place in the Lower East Side steadfastly holds on to its underground spirit, and remains one of New York’s foremost places to watch the creative process in action. Today, the intimate 120-seat theater hosts a diverse program of plays, musicals, dance performances and literary readings by emerging and established artists like Kate Soper, Toni Schlesinger and Marcia Monroe. Dixon Place also hosts similarly experimental art exhibitions in its gallery, alongside film screenings and talks, while musical performances and cabaret take place in the lounge.

Founded in 1961 by Ellen Stewart, La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club has been a home for artists of all kinds, especially those whose work is not considered to be mainstream or conventional. Sam Shephard, Phillip Glass, Amy Sedaris, Harvey Fierstein and more have all been a part of this historic East Village performance space, which encourages all kinds of art – think everything from puppetry to poetry reading, dance concerts to beatbox championships – and offers several in-house programs, as well as special events all year round. Visitors can experience any number of alternative artistic happenings within the theater’s casual black box atmosphere, with down-played surroundings and non-fussy seating that help guests focus on the performances at hand.

This tiny comedy club in the East Village has seen some huge acts over the years, from national names like Louis C.K., Daymon Wayans and Sarah Silverman to longtime New York locals like Janeane Garofalo, who is a regular performer at the Eastville Comedy Club. Ticket prices are kept low, at $10 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and $20 on Fridays and Saturdays, making it an affordable form of entertainment whenever you feel like a laugh. Enjoy a few drinks while watching stand-up comedy within Eastville’s intimate, retro-designed interior, with its turquoise walls, and cheeky subway tiled stage. For big-time comedians looking to work out new material to a smaller audience, or smaller acts still honing their craft, this is a great, easily accessible comedy room.

The type of performance art provided to audience members of New York Neo-Futurist shows is experimental, engaging and delightfully unconventional. Shows at this East Village theater provide visitors with a theatrical experience they won’t soon forget, set within a bare-bones stage – no fancy sets, no extravagant props and no elaborate costumes. It’s just the actors, the audience and the feeling of performing a play within the moment. The most famous performance of the New York Neo-Futurists includes the long-running Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind, where actors attempt to perform 30 plays within 60 minutes. No two shows have occurred twice, offering audience members a truly memorable, high-energy show that can’t be found anywhere else.
