An amazingly fun time - a short show that packs in a lot of pop culture references to tickle the fancy! Solid acting, malleable set, cool puppets - just really good (not necessarily clean!) fun!

Thoroughly enjoyable show. Rare to find a (mostly) original performance where 90%+ of the jokes were hits (and only a couple groaners!). Actors were really into it, which made it that much more enjoyable. Hopefully the cooler will be a better...continued

Description

Directed by Manny Tamayo

About the Ticket Supplier: Factory Theater

Founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1992, Factory Theater is a theater organization dedicated to the writing, directing, performance and production of original works written by ensemble members that are accessible to inexperienced as well as seasoned theatergoers. Since 1992 the Factory has produced more than 60 productions that have been enjoyed by both critics and audience members.

Factory Theater bridges the gap between critical acclaim and audience accessibility. Most of their shows have received rave reviews and awards by various publications including The Reader, New City, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, and L.A. Weekly, among others.

In 1998, Factory Theater opened a branch company in Los Angeles, California, and many of their ensemble members relocated out west to pursue careers in film, television and screenwriting and to help create a national presence for the company. Factory Theater has also taken trips out to New York on two separate occasions - in 1998 their After-Dark award winning production of The Vinyl Shop was the hit of the Fringe Festival, and in 2001 Factory was invited to the H.E.R.E. space in Soho by PSNBC to perform The Death And Life Of Barb Budonovich, a short version of their production Varations On Death.

The Factory attributes its success to hard work, dedication, and love for theater. Those attributes continue on in the Factory's vision of writing and producing new works to provide their ever-growing audience with laughter and inspiration.
