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

Fascinating exploration of life in North Korea and the struggle of two sisters to escape the brutal regime with the aid or a smuggler, and their experiences in New York as newly arrived refugees. My only complaint is the use of "magical realism" which at times worked brilliantly and at other times felt just a bit off. Still, well worth seeing...awesome show!
