Quirky & thought provoking play in an interesting venue. We looked at the adjoining art space and gallery before the play, and ended up buying an oil painting at an amazingly affordable price! Clearly there’s a lot of creative energy in this...continued

Description

“…off-the-canyon-walls funny…”
Variety

“[Men on Boats is marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater. The stalwartness and selfishness of the adventurers—their cockiness and cluelessness—become biting satire when sent up by women.”
New York Magazine

CRITIC’S PICK! “[a] rollicking history pageant…. Men on Boats starts from the realization that we can never recreate exactly how it was. This play’s perspective is that of a contemporary reader filtering accounts of another age through her own latter-day sensibility…It’s not unlike what Lin-Manuel Miranda is doing in his splendid hip-hop musical Hamilton.”
— Ben Brantley, New York Times
