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

Despite its silly title, Posner's play is terrific, as are the surprisingly seasoned performers at Woolly. Even with many chinks in the fourth wall, this is good solid theater rather than anything weird, with the f*** word masquerading as a mask. Think Hamlet, Chekov, and 6 Characters in Search of an Author. I was so surprised to be crying at the end.

Superb acting all around. The play itself was well written, witty and kept a good pace - even for someone not familiar with the original work (The Seagull) on which it was based. Can't wait to see another performance at this outstanding theater.
