I noticed a few people with beer and wine, when I asked about this service I was told it was brought in from the liquor store next door. At intermission I bought a beer for me and a small bottle of wine for my girlfriend. Very cool of the theater to allow this.

More Information


STAGEStheatre presents the B-movie spoof, Women Behind Bars, written by Tom Eyen.  David Campos, director of STAGES’ brilliant premiere last year, Rattlers, returns and holds all the keys as the ultimate warden of this cast filled with bad girls, and a couple bad boys.


Women Behind Bars tells the woeful tale of innocent Mary Eleanor who lands in the Women’s House of Detention in Greenwich Village after being framed.  Poor Mary Eleanor faces sadism and the comedic horror that can only be found in a truly bad movie.  They’re all innocent, just ask ’em.
