Join four friends as they battle today's always-connected, over-scheduled world to carve out time to enjoy brunch together. While struggling to prioritize and prepare for their gathering, they learn the stories behind not only well-known brunch drinks but also the meal itself, and come to appreciate the value of making time to break bread and sip drinks with good friends. Tickets include a light continental bunch and three craft cocktails, including a create-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Please arrive 30 minutes before showtime to enjoy brunch and your first drink.

DC Metro Theater Arts

"The energy and laughs bubble over after intermission...Throughout the time-traveling show, the actors perform Ehrlich’s original a cappella songs with melodious voices and perfect four-part harmonies...The engaging production concludes with the ensemble bringing us up to date on the growing popularity and democratization of brunch through the centuries, and some hysterically insightful observations on our age of digital media and internet crowd-funding."

Village Voice

"A surprisingly educational diversion...Lightly amusing anecdotes and vignettes quickly pour forth over the two hours...The quartet handily switches between numerous accents, costume pieces, and attitudes as they swiftly depict a cavalcade of personages...Their nimble performances prove more potent than the traditional concoctions they serve up...Still, 'The Imbible: Day Drinking' usually goes down smoothly enough, and is likely to send you out into the evening in fine spirits."

The Mary Sue

"While it takes maybe a little bit to fully adjust your expectations, once you’re in the pace of things, the show is a laugh-out-loud delight...Not only is this a great boozy excursion, it’s also really informative...The actors all have amazing voices and jump between historical and modern-day characters with hilarity...'Imbible' is a big history lesson, but it’s also a reminder to value your close friends and reach out to them, even if it’s just for a few Bloody Marys."

Metro (US)

"Though the play gets a bit too academic at times, the sung anecdotes...have the effect of making you feel strangely protective of this thing you’ve likely mocked as much as you’ve participated in...The absurdity—and academic rigor—are easy to embrace as the cast dispenses two more cocktails over the course of the show. By the end, everyone is so delighted with life that the final song isn’t bittersweet at all." Full Review

Quirky, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if If you are interested in having 3 drinks then the history it conveys and like a variety of drinks, which they pick...go 30 minutes early

Don't see it if If you want to hear the history of different alcohol, rather than seeing musical skits trying to enact it. Seating uncomfortable, crowded

Disappointing, Slow, Condescending

See it if you can get a discount and you want some booze.

Don't see it if Apparently the regular one has this bartender as the lead with the singers as back up. This was just the a cappella singers.

Also I found it to be condescending in "explaining" the origins of some of ... Read more Read less

Quirky, Indulgent, Fluffy, Light-hearted, Boozy

See it if you're with a few friends and want to enjoy and extremely self-indulgent show (with an entire song about umami) while you have 3 drinks.

Don't see it if you want substance, or would have to pay full price.

Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if like acapella, like "brunch" type drinks

Don't see it if you are looking for super high class theater

Funny, Clever, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you enjoy a show where you are educated and entertained at same time about the history of alcohol. Very good a cappella singing. Free drinks

Don't see it if you are not interested in the history of alcohol or do not drink. This show reminded me of That Physics Show. Fun and educational.
