Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Quirky

See it if If you want to learn about the history of drinking . 4 young actors are pretty humorous. Silly but fun and different!

Don't see it if If your into traditional theater whether drama or musical. Not really for the serious theater goer.

See it if Booze-infused highly sippable cabaret in a tall matinee glass. Talented cast serve up Vladdy Marys, whiskey coffees & bellinis. Add yer own.

Don't see it if Arrive early to opt for the jalepeno scones and the savory spiced garnishes as they vanish before showtime (twenty-minute window).Very clean Read more

"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 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."

"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."

"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."
