A clamor of familiar, booze-sodden archetypes bellies up to Frank’s Bar in this interactive theater experience, playing out uproarious scenes recognizable to any regular dive-bar spelunker. Between slurred bits of sketch comedy, the actors invite the audience to participate in drinking games akin to Never Have I Ever and Explain Where Your Shirt Went. Directed by John Haynes, head of the Actors Theater’s Creative Institute, the cast is culled from this troupe and others, including Brave New Workshop Theater, Stevie Ray’s Comedy Cabaret, and the Fringe Festival. The Twin Cities Daily Planet’s Becca Mitchell praised the half-play-half-party for doing “a great job of…reveling in the familiarity of certain drunken scenarios,” and Tom Horgen of Vita.mn called it “…an evening overflowing with debauchery. In other words: my kind of theater.” The performance is likely to inspire a powerful thirst in the audience, easily managed by the fully stocked bar.
