Space available in our building!

Starting May 1, you can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft, and in the loft itself. New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we reserved the largest ones to share as office, storage and craft space. Ideally we'd like to see them split between 2-3 performance groups (theater, puppets, dance) and bundled with rehearsal and show bookings upstairs, but we're also open to individual co-working and co-crafting shares. Learn more and apply here: Or, to get your own space, see -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.) For anyone renting a room in the building, we'll offer discounts on any Loft rentals for meetings, rehearsals and shows.

7.12 - The Grand Victorian Garden Tea Party

at the historical Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden, 421 E 61st St

Join us as we travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street). It's a proper turn-of-century tea party, with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies, in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan. Full catering by King's Carriage House, a secret Victorian-inspired tea lounge on the Upper East Side. In addition, historical chef Rebecca Leigh Silverman will bake a few custom delights from antique recipes.

Activities will include:

  • Special musical guest Grammy winner Rhiannon Giddens
  • A delightful selection of music by Phonograph DJ MAC on two 1905 Victrolas
  • Hand-drawn portraits of guests by Anastasios Taso Megaris
  • An introduction and mini lecture on Victorian tea from historical chef Rebecca Leigh Silverman
  • A mini lesson on The Language of The Fan
  • Victorian garden games, including Game of Graces and Battledore and Shuttlecock
  • Make-your-own herb sachets from the Museum's garden

Dress code: 1800-1910s summer garden party, with all-white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. No modern casual wear, please. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours) here.

About our venue: Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family. All guests will have access to the museum as well as garden. In case of rain, outdoor covering provided.

A speakeasy experiment in our magical loft. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you (and up to three friends) get a complimentary tasting. No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious. Lounge with your date or your friends in our sexy low-lit space, or gather at the bar to watch the magic unfold. Our loft is yours for the night.

Featured ingredients and featured cocktails TBA!

About our bartender: sculptor, maker, karaoke enthusiast and bartender, Shayna Cott spent 365 days sequestered in a barn in rural Vermont, studying, training, and emerging periodically to create cocktails from seasonal and esoteric ingredients. She brings this vocational hermitage to bear now on concocting libations from the unpredictable submissions of Gemini and Scorpio's guests.

Over the last three decades, Hayao Miyazaki, and his company Studio Ghibli, have been behind some of the greatest masterpieces that animated film have ever seen, strange wonderful pictures that couldn't have come from anywhere or anyone else, and have broken out of love from just the hardcore anime fans to enchant audiences and cinephiles the world over.

For our final Miyazaki movie night, we're watching Kiki's Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro - the next two movies in our poll that got the most votes.
