Watching a Supreme Court case performed verbatim may not sound like a lot (or even a little) fun. But when the Supreme Court case is 1991's Barnes v. Glen Theatre, in which a group of strippers claims mandatory pasties and thongs infringe on their First Amendment rights, and the play is performed by Elevator Repair Service, who received rave reviews for Gatz, a verbatim performance of The Great Gatsby, it all makes a lot more sense. Arguendo shows the Supreme Court justices pondering the ideas of "adult" car washes and nude operas, while the lawyers and representative go-go dancer make their case in a show that's both heartfelt and silly. The New York Times called Arguendo "wittily inventive" and Entertainment Weekly described it as "boisterously entertaining." Learn More
