"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." Full Review
"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." Full Review
"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
"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."

See it if I don’t get bad reviews. Delivers exactly what expected: drinks with ok acapella singing, and enjoyable atmosphere. Unique concept.
Don't see it if It surely is not a masterpiece, but it’s a fun afternoon out. Light, enjoyable and entertaining. Wouldn’t see for the full price though.
See it if You like a cappella, want the history of brunch/brunch cocktails, like to drink the cocktails, like tiny immersive theater.
Don't see it if Space is very intimate; writing/acting is meh. Harmonies aren't always on. Saving grace: cocktails, actors laughing at themselves.
See it if you enjoy a Capella music, history lessons, and drinking alcoholic beverages. It's an interesting concept, but it's a little silly.
Don't see it if you want a plot, talented musicians, or do not like sitting in small spaces.
See it if You want to enjoy an afternoon with a friend at a funny production w lite brunch, 3 full size drinks & a kooky cast singing history of drink
Don't see it if You expect a Broadway production, don't like sitting in a small space, expect a full spread at brunch. If that's you, go to Saardi's.
See it if You enjoy drinking and want to learn some history about different brunch drinks
Don't see it if You don't enjoy drinking, or are expecting a large production. The show takes place in an actual bar with 4 performers.
See it if You'd enjoy three tasty drinks (make-your-own bloody mary, spiked coffee, bellini) with a fun energetic cast performing skits.
Don't see it if You're looking for a profound show, since this is silly campy fun that's perfect for a brunch out with friends.
See it if you need some fun facts to drop casually at your next brunch, like the stories behind Veuve Clicquot and the Bellini.
Don't see it if you want a full brunch experience; it's just muffins and croissants here with your Bloody Mary (which you should get with the pickled okra)
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
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.
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.
See it if you want to experience traditional NY singing, dancing and acting, with a unique twist. The drinks were awesome & we laughed the whole time
Don't see it if You are looking for a show in a large theater or if you are looking for a meaningful plotline.
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.
