The Nerve Tank
has been performing their new show, "A Gathering" at the Lyceum on Thursdays at 8:30pm. They're offering a significant discount to CrossFitters ($10 per show as opposed to $18).  Why not class up your post WOD ritual with this "dark, metaphysical thriller that questions the nature of identity and bodied presence." Simply say that you're part of CrossFit South Brooklyn, drop a Hamilton and enjoy the show!
