About Our Team
For my money, the theatre is up there in the ten top reasons to be human. I leave my home and to sit in a dark room with complete strangers and watch actors do their stuff because I want to be inspired. I’m asking to be involved. I’m volunteering to be lead down any old path they choose as long as they don’t let go of my hand.
Monologues and Madness is a place where the text gets to be heard – sometimes for the first time. It’s a place where theatre is being born.

A great supportive audience and venue. Monologues and Madness empowers writer-performers to take risks.
For ten bucks you get drink and entertainment. Can’t beat that.
I’m from out of town. I arrive at Cornelia not knowing how I’ll be received in this, the largest of cities.
But lo, the native New Yorkers embrace my little monologue like an oyster embraces a grain of sand; no, more like a like a giant squid…no that’s not quite right; hmmm, like the “Jaws of Life” embrace the crushed door on an overturned vehicle that has veered off the road into a ditch and burst into flames, trapping the driver. That’s it.
I feel supported, appreciated, loved. And as the crowd carries me on their shoulders out into the warm Greenwich Village night, I can only think, “Where are my car keys?”
