Park in the Horton Plaza parking lot and get your validation at the theater. It is 4 hours and will give you plenty of time to see the play and grab a bite to eat or spend some extra time downtown.

Description

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results.

The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.
