You certainly know Hollywood Squares. Now Tim Cusack, Colonel Esquire James P.

Join Gotham’s most famous gossip columnist live at The Laurie Beechman Theatre for America’s favorite version of tic-tac-toe. Each night two celebrity guests from the worlds of Downtown theatre and Broadway join Center Square Michael Musto in a battle of wits and knowledge. Will they choose Top, Versatile, or Bottom? Madonna, Beyonce or Rihanna? Trump, Kim Jong-un, or Putin? Unscripted, unrehearsed, unfiltered. WARNING: May cause laughter. Better have granny’s nitro handy.
