Written by and starting in this gem is bartender, Anthony Caporale. One can sense his love of the craft from the very beginning. And from the very beginning does he start - Cavemen! His history and chemistry lesson spans the centuries highlighting the ups and downs and origins of our favorite libation.
Performed in a bar, (an actual speakeasy) by a bartender - you certainly won't feel cheated out of the truth and some deep history on the subject. Infused with barbershop quartet melodies and zippy little ditties about the subject matter - this show can't fail to entertain. The fourth wall is broken and the performer is really an M.C. to the delight of the audience. He demonstrates a real live distillation machine and has many PowerPoint slides to illustrate his walk through history. And talk about delight - my favorite backwaiter - Mark Edwards - was a truly an adorable, talented hambone who never failed to entertain in every scene.
This quartet of talented actors actually do realize their show is a low budget delight - and even point that out at several spots during the show ("Ladies and Gentlemen, I remind you there are no special effects here tonite").
If you're interested in booze and like to be served drinks (there are 3!) during a show - head down to SoHo and take in an evening with the delightful cast of Imbible. Be warned, you have to be 21 or over to partake. And fear not - the bar is open before and after the show!
