Last-Minute Plans

Miss us?

Our 2013 shows start up again this weekend, even though it’s still 2012, because time is just, like, an artificial construct, man.

This weekend we’re doing a special menu featuring some of our favorite plays from the past few years, and we’re capping it off with our traditional, race-to-the-end-of-the-year performance on NewYear’s Eve.
