A different Chicago storyteller starts each performance, so each show is a little bit different.

Not really a comedy. Lots of sad, gruesome moments. Not funny. Abortion, date rape, and incest is not funny.

I went with my boyfriend, and we thorougly enjoyed the variety of stories. Some were laugh-out-loud, others were poignant. Altogether a great time, and a great cast.

Quotes & Highlights

“You have to hand it to the all-new Broken Nose Theatre…” -Chicago Tribune (two and a half stars)
“_My First Time _is late night fun!”


by Ken Davenport & People Just Like You

Directed by Benjamin Brownson

Featuring Brooks Applegate, Catherine Dildilian, Spenser Davis, and Leslie Ruettiger

If you did it, there’s probably a story behind it. Whether it was love or lust, shy or sexy, awkward or awesome or somewhere in between, chances are you remember your first sexual experience. It’s one of the few things almost every person on the planet has in common, yet we rarely talk about it. Until now…

In My First Time, four amazing actors perform stories ranging from heartbreaking to hysterical, every one of them true and written by real people just like you. Featured on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and even a iPhone commercial, Broken Nose Theatre is thrilled to present the Chicago Premiere of this Off-Broadway hit. My First Time will have you laughing and reminiscing about your own first time… and thinking about your next one.

_Please note:

The performance contains strong language and adult themes and is intended for adult audiences._
