Readymade Cabaret uses Duchamp’s notions of chance and readymades to celebrate the beauty of chance encounters. The scenes that are performed, and the order in which they are performed, depend on the roll of the dice; so in any given performance, the audience sees 1 of a hundred million possible plays.
The Spring 2015 run of Readymade Cabaret was supported in part by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Readymade Cabaret "succeeds in creating an entertaining and unpredictable atmosphere while packing countless ideas into 60 minutes."
Readymade Cabaret creates "a kind of participation that was smart, functional and at times deeply poetic."
