Bye Bye Liver, the Twin Cities Drinking Play, is a high octane comedy adventure centered around one of the Twin Cities’ favorite past times—drinking. With outrageous sketch comedies mixing drinks, interactive drinking games and male versus female inebriation, Bye Bye Liver is a play premised on the simple joys and complex consequences that indulging in a drink or two or three can bring.

Under the direction of John Haynes, director of the Creative Institute at Actors Theater, the Bye Bye Liver cast features a team of comedy stalwarts. The hour-and-15-minute show premiered in Nashville and was originally created by producer, writer and director Byron Hatfield.

Star Tribune says, “Show has been knocking them back”

City Pages says, “A-list event!”

TC Daily Planet says, “Bye Bye Liver hits the sweet spot”!

Flanagan is dead, but don’t be sad because remembering his life is all about laughs! Back by popular demand, it’s Flanagan’s Wake, the hilarious, interactive Irish funeral. Come celebrate the life of our dear friend, Flanagan, by hoisting a pint and joining in on the tales that unfold.

Join the villagers of the beautiful Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and toast the memory of one of their own. Pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to the poor grieving fiancée, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo’s best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a weaver of tales. Share memories of your own experiences and misadventures with dear, old Flanagan, or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall Flan’s life. Cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory’s parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn’t cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O’Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat) as he leads in grieving as only the Irish can.

Deer Camp: The Musical

This laugh-out-loud musical follows the guys from Elmwood, MN, on their annual hunting trip to deer camp where they do anything but hunt!

But this year is different; after 15 years of coming home with nothing but a hangover, the guys are under a threat from their wives to “get a deer or else.”

That means no more hunting trips if they come back empty handed again.

What to do: shoot one? Buy one? Steal one? They try it all with hilarious results!

Chess

Book by Richard Nelson
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson

Second Fiddle is honored to bring to life this newly reworked, intimate musical telling of the passengers first, second and third class — aboard the ill-fated luxury liner Titanic in the nights leading up to the ship’s fatal encounter with an iceberg in the North Atlantic in 1912. Through an ingenious doubling scheme, created by original Broadway cast member, Don Stephenson, Titanic Ensemble Version requires a cast of just 20 to tell the gripping story of the ocean liner’s maiden voyage and tragic demise.

The Original Broadway Production of Titanic opened on Broadway April 23, 1997, at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and ran 804 performances but closed at a loss, despite winning five Tony Awards (including Best Musical) and the release of James Cameron’s film Titanic in December 1997.

Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston
Orchestration by Ian Weinberger
Produced on Broadway by Dodger Theatricals, Richard S. Pechter and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Of one womb born, on the self same day,
How one was kept and one given away?

A New Brain

Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by William Finn and James Lapine

What happens when a mans time on earth is limited? What stories do we want to leave behind? How do we cope when we or our loved ones are going through a major life ordeal?

By the Tony-award winning authors, A New Brain is an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children’s television show that features a frog - Mr. Bungee - and the spectre of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal.

Through Gordon’s eyes we see the need for connection when were presented with life or death moments.
