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

The is a one man show. He is a great story teller with a bit of Lewis Black. It is both informative and amusing. The only problem I had is that he modulates his voice a lot and I found it very difficult to hear him at some points.
This show is appropriate for those age 14 and older.
The show’s running time is approximately one hour and 45 minutes.
