Theatre is Easy
December 22nd, 2015
For a previous production

"A highly entertaining show for tourists and New York City residents alike. It not only introduces the audience to the history of alcoholic holiday beverages, it also promises laughter and skillfully crafted harmonies sung by talented performers…The cast breaks the fourth wall efficiently and effectively…It’s hard to beat a show that entertains, educates, and inebriates…The music, the performances, the comedy, and the audience interaction are what make this show great."

Theater In The Now
November 21st, 2016
For a previous production

"If you're expecting any semblance of theatrical content, you'll surely be disappointed. But those drinks, they’re divine...Caporale's writing is littered with unfunny recurring jokes that lean into moans by the end...It's a dramaturgical nightmare...'Christmas Carol Cocktails' is a festive night with drinks that were fun and fabulous. It’s fast-paced cherriness that kicks off the season. If you can put aside the text, you’re bound to enjoy yourself. The drinks are worth the price of admission."

NY Theatre Guide
November 21st, 2016
For a previous production

"Scrooge is played with funny, spastic vivacity by Andrew Orsie…Kate Hoover is witty and spunky as the Ghost of Spirits Past…While not groundbreaking theatre, ‘The Imbible: Christmas Carol Cocktails’ is a sweet holiday celebration, and has the unique aspect of adding in Christmas cocktails. It’s perfect for a date night in the city, or bringing a group of friends for a more unique theater experience."

For a previous production

“The cast does a wonderful job of captivating the audience with moving musical numbers, humorous banter and lively interactions. We left the theater that evening substantially more jolly. The ‘Imbible: Christmas Carol Cocktails’ is a fun twist on a classic story that is a must for anyone looking to experience a unique and memorable holiday show. Whether you’re a native, or just visiting for the holidays, if you’re in NYC this month it should definitely be on your list!”

Dancing Hotdogs
November 23rd, 2015
For a previous production

"Educational, silly and with the best drinks in town. 'The Imbible' is a must-see if you are over 21...A ticket to the show is $75, which may sound expensive for an off-Broadway show; however, when you consider that three decadent holiday drinks are included with each ticket, it is THE best place for a date night...So how do four actors with no backup band, high-tech scenery and lights make you laugh, sing and be thoroughly entertained for over 60 minutes? By being extremely talented."

Cheers
December 1st, 2015
For a previous production

"Not being a fan of many old-timey holiday drinks, I wasn’t sure what to expect...So when someone handed me a Brandy Syllabub before the start of the show, describing it as a 'proto nog,' I was dubious that I’d like it...This wasn’t hot, it was faintly carbonated, and it was amazing—I wanted another....In addition to the Brandy Syllabub, the show includes a Drambuie Mocha hot coffee drink and a Molecular Candy Cane Martini. Cheers!"
