The Brick Theater, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is where the Lower East Side got all "Phoenix from the Ashes" on your ass. Go check them out, because they're earnest AND snide, which is a killer combination.
They're currently running The Baby Jesus One Act Jubilee (including a fantastic monologue by John Devore, whom we hold in our Kingly Graces.)
I suggest them and hereby plug them with this scepter.
