New Show: RaeRoest Presents... The Generation Gap!

New Show Alert!

The Generation Gap: 
A Comedic Lesson on Pop Culture As Told By A Couple Reconciling with An Age Difference

I could not be more excited for this weekend’s first show of a new project RaeRoest has been working on! 

About The Show

Gen Gap -Square.png

Comedians Rachel and Sam are romantically involved and have everything in common. Except for an age difference of 12 years. As a result, there is a certain gap of time that they have agreed they cannot talk about. They just cannot -- it’s just too weird!

Now, it’s time to talk about it. On stage. 

Each show explores 2 iconic pieces of nostalgic pop culture from their two different childhoods in great detail. By the end of each show, Sam and Rachel - and the audience - will have learned more about each phenomenon as well as about each other.


Show Dates

Sept 23rd @ 9pm
Oct 11th @ 9:30pM

Both shows at The PIT: 123 E 24th Street (@ Lex)

Rites: A One "Woman" Show

Rachel Rosenthal spins emotionally-charged nostalgic hilarity in this wittily written, charismatically acted, tightly packed ball-of-awesome.
— James Bruffee, Actor (NYC)

Rites: A One “Woman” Show

The year was 1992 and Rachel was about to become a “woman.”  Travel back in time to fluorescent scrunchies, Boyz II Men hits and Rachel Rosenthal’s own Bat Mitzvah - as she takes us on her journey to womanhood through true stories, bigger than life characters, and obviously - choreographed dances. What does it mean to be a woman?
