about the show
Prolonged Eye Contact is a an interactive solo show by comedian Kristen Studard about the search for love, connection, and approval by one performer with one audience. Kristen would like to be loved by you, monogamously. (She's a one-audience type of gal.) What happens when someone won't break eye contact? Uh oh, things just got real. Prepared to be wooed as Kristen opens her heart and her eyes and looks right into your soul. Are you ready to be seen?
about the venue
The Andrew Norwood House is an elegant urban residence designed in a transitional style which combines Greek revival and italianate features. A remarkably preserved slice of early Victorian architecture and lifestyle - both inside and out; the House is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Inside is a perfectly preserved 1847 mansion with 13 fireplaces, huge mahogany doors and intricate plaster crown molding. Hidden touches abound, like the carved bird pecking a flower among the mantelpiece's Carrarra marble foliage.
Founded in 2007, Norwood is a unique and vibrant private members Club which draws its membership through New York's creative arts community. The house offers a unique, stylish and comfortable environment for members to dine, drink, connect, collaborate and thrive.
