Although we don't tend to dine out before or after plays, there are several places to eat right there by the theatre.

Description

The Stuntmen united in 2009 for a single purpose – to never again perform in a “talking heads” comedy sketch. They were weary of seeing scenes in which two modern-day people sit and talk about events that occur off stage. The Stuntmen deliver an eclectic array of sketches inspired by the action film genre. And yes, the action occurs on stage. They’re physical, frenetic, and we’re not afraid to take a few bumps and bruises for the cause.

The Stuntmen’s shows are filled with car chases, ninjas, time bombs, time travel, bank heists, and unblockable kicks. Conspicuously absent? Scenes in which two generic friends talk about their day over a latte.

The Stuntmen bring over 30 years of combined comedic performance experience to deliver shows that demand the audience’s attention. Action movies are high stakes, over-the-top affairs with heroes and villains and conflict; add a humorous twist, and voila! The Stuntmen.
