salon - a variety show


Steven Russo & Justin Gabel – April 2017 Salon Cold Open


Salon was a live, monthly variety show which featured original material from actors, stand-ups, writers, and musicians across New York City. It was created by Steven Russo & Justin Gabel–two longtime childhood friends.

The premise of Salon was simple: Take an awesome party with your most creative friends, add a stage, and workshop your freshest, newest piece. Throw in some good food and beer, and you had yourself one unique Sunday soirée.

In short, Salon was a safe space that found the sweet spot between a polished show and a developing, artistic communal experience.
