    $14.50 for $27.00 - Tony-winning Baseball Drama "take Me Out"


    Take Me Out is the Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning drama about Darren Lemming, the handsome.. read more and talented star center fielder for the New York Empires who matter-of-factly -- and casually -- announces he's gay. The response from his friends, teammates and fans seems totally out of left field, and their ambivalence even turns to violence in some cases. But Lemming's declaration emboldens his closeted business manager to come to terms with his own sexuality as he blooms in the ecstatic discovery of baseball. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and winner of the Tony for Best Play in 2003, this topical and timely drama examines themes of homophobia, masculinity, class and racism.

    $9.50 for $17.00 - Murder, Mayhem and Real Estate in Satirical Comedy "owners"


    Social niceties fly out the window in Owners , a bitterly funny, taut comedy by acclaimed Eng.. read morelish playwright Caryl Churchill. Skewering our collective hunger for wealth and power, Owners is ruthless as it follows real estate baroness Marion, who schemes to buy out a family from one of her properties. Set in dingy butcher shops and shabby apartments, the story depicts a giddily dark side of buying and selling, as sexual favors are handed out like candy, murders get carried out with varying degrees of success, and a baby becomes a bartering tool. It all adds up to a vicious satire of human greed, delivered with brio by the Interrobang Theatre Project.

It's a cool, old theater. Smaller side and intimate, and I like that at least for the A.V. comedy fest, you could choose your own seats on the map through the ticketing system. Small bar, but it moves very fast despite the large crowds and has a good selection. My only major complaint is that after ....

Amazing theater. Great place to see a show. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The balcony is a bit steep, if that's a concern for you be aware.
