In honor of their production of Paris Commune at the Public Theater, the company performed a special sequel to the revolution at trendy Lower East Side club. Paris Commune, a musical play penned by Steven Cosson and Michael Friedman, enjoyed a limited run through April 20 at the Public Theater. Press notes described the show as such: "In 1871, working class Parisians overthrew the French government, declared Paris autonomous and launched an attempt to radically reinvent society. This revolution is the basis of The Civilians' Paris Commune."

Here is a look at the Monday evening event:
