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

I thoroughly enjoyed this but I am an admitted Simpsons fanatic and am especially fond of the episode the play centers around--Cape Feare. However, I am not sure exactly how much a non-Simpsons fan would get out of it. The acting was top notch. One complaint about the play is that I wanted to know "what the hell" happened exactly but that's my same complaint with "The Walking Dead." However, that did not deter my enjoyment of the show. Again, for Simpsons fanatics this is a must-see. Everyone else? Your life is already a failure so it's up to you...
