Fun, Clever, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Insightful

See it if You enjoy participating in a lively discussion. This felt more like a guided discussion than theatre so you get more when you speak up.

Don't see it if You don’t like immersive theatre or participation.

Immersive, Engaging, Interesting concept, Audience-dependant, Entertaining

See it if you want to be part of a conversation in a bar w/strangers and discuss mostly non-cerebral ideas concerning daily life in the city.

Don't see it if you don't want to participate. [Unlike any immersive show I know, this one's completely dependant on audience interest & involvement.] Read more

“Performance art is reinvented over a cheese-bacon burger or beer...The bar with striking colored windows and beautiful wooded portals never really heats up. In fact, the improvisation has a loose format; it’s is so light, you almost don’t know it’s happening. There are no strong gestures until Shelly peels out...Her stomp-through includes a diatribe against the government, looking like really cool performance art.”

“Inventive...This interactive barroom chat of a show showcases a rotating roster of special musical guest...Although the dialogue sometimes feels forced or gets stalled, this talented crew of actors nudge it back on track and do their best to keep the drink-fueled conversation flowing...A fun and memorable night, something unique and surprising, and even with the unsettling tantrum that happened as the show strutted its way to the end, one that I had a hard time shaking off.”
