About the Program

Join us on Wednesday, June 15 for The LAB curated by Julie Piñero. The LAB is a free public event held each month. These events are curated by local and national artists who are in residency at our theatre the month prior to their event. The subjects that are explored in The LAB are as dynamic as the artists that host them. In a year where change is the status quo, join The LAB for an empowering venture into curiosity, innovation, and creation in real-time.

Resident Artists

Julie Piñero is a Brooklyn-based writer, comedian and multimedia producer. She’s best known for the 2021 Zoom-native solo show she wrote, directed and performed, “Delejos (from afar)”. In the show, Julie blends standup comedy, live music and an at-home VR experience in her immersive exploration of grief and forced separation in the pandemic era. The show was covered by the LA Times, Playbill, Insider and Remezcla. Julie produces Audible’s annual LGBTQ+ comedy podcast special, along with podcasts from comedians Kate Willett and Mo Welch, rapper Common and Mayor of Newark Ras Baraka. She was formerly a video journalist at HuffPost, where she covered the swell of women running for first-time office in the 2018 midterms, including a doc profile on Deb Haaland and the campaign behind AOC. She was also a culture video producer at Thrillist, where her work centered around the weird and wild world of Latinx subcultures across the US, including the docu-series she sold to Bustelo, “Barrio, U.S.A”.
