"Don't Dress for Dinner" is the hilarious and stylish sequel to the classic "Boeing Boeing". Ten years have passed and the roguish stars of "Boeing Boeing", Robert and Bernard, have "settled down." But that doesn't stop the rush of sexy shenanigans, mix-ups and wild coincidences that keep this farce moving from curtain up. Bernard's plan for a rendezvous in the countryside with his mistress takes an unexpected turn when his wife decides to stay in town for a tryst of her own with Robert ... who had supplied Bernard with his alibi. With a cook named Suzette, a lover named Suzanne, a confused friend and a suspicious wife, you have all the ingredients for a truly scrumptious comedic soufflé. "The Guardian" called "Don't Dress for Dinner" "a near faultless piece of theatrical invention." Enjoy all the farcical fun at The Gremlin Theatre in Saint Paul. [less-]

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series "Drunk History", the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Camp Bar in St. Paul. [less-]
