The drinks are on us as you join world-renowned mixologist and raconteur Anthony Caporale for a boozy romp through the history of spirits and cocktails in this new play with drinks and music!
Following in the footsteps of hit comedy-edutainment shows like Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl and Colin Quinn’s Long Story Short, The Imbible sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe accompanied by craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters acapella group! Sit back and enjoy the music and drinks while Anthony holds forth on the history and science behind alcoholic beverages, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, guides the audience through cocktail tastings, and – like any good bartender – keeps his guests laughing throughout the night! Combining Anthony’s encyclopedic knowledge of beverage history and decades of bartending experience with his legendary skills as a storyteller and entertainer, The Imbible treats audiences to a completely original and thoroughly enjoyable evening of theatre utterly unlike anything they’ve ever experienced!
You must show proof of legal drinking age at the performance as cocktails will be served throughout.
We’re thrilled to announce that The Imbible has been accepted into the 2014 Fringe Encore Series following our sold-out run at The New York International Fringe Festival!
