The Off Broadway Theatre brings holiday-themed parodies and unpredictable improv shows to life on its intimate stage, entertaining patrons with a family-friendly smorgasbord of comedic performances. One of Utah’s longest-running improv shows, Laughing Stock hurls its unscripted funniness at audience members, taking suggestions from them before spinning out extemporaneous bits, sketches, and State of the Union addresses. Alternatively, a farcical take on Dr. Seuss’s classic Christmas crime thriller, The Grouch Who Stole Christmas casts Sesame Street’s resident curmudgeon Oscar as a humbug whose resentment of his neighbors’ holiday cheer leads him to plan the biggest heist in Whoville history. The light-hearted play gift-wraps laughs and lessons of kindness and community for audiences of all ages.
The Off Broadway Theatre offers discounted theater tickets of $8 for children 12 and younger and $12 for military members, students, and seniors. All Monday and matinee performances are $8. Laughing Stock sells discounted tickets of $6 for children 12 and younger and $9 for military members, students, and seniors.
The Off Broadway Theatre
The name doesn't lie—located in Salt Lake City, The Off Broadway Theatre is about as far from The Great White Way as you can get. But geography hasn't stopped the space from staging New York-caliber classic musicals and original comedies for nearly 20 years. The auditorium rings with laughter during beloved productions such as Little Shop of Horrors and The Pirates of Penzance, and house-written parodies including The Adventures of Sheer-Luck Homes and Snotson , The X-Mas Men, and Dracula vs. any number of monsters once portrayed by Boris Karloff. Audience members get the chance to join in on the hilarity during interactive sets from the resident jokesters of the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe.
