THEATRE FOR THE THIRSTY

Entering its fifth smash year as one of the 100 longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time! Hailed as “remarkably compelling” by Time Out New York, A SPIRITED HISTORY OF DRINKING sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe, accompanied by 3 complimentary craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters a cappella group!

This groundbreaking show pours through the history and science behind cocktails and spirits, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling alcohol, and of course keeps audiences laughing throughout the night.

Presented in its entirety in a bar, A Spirited History of Drinking treats audiences to a completely original and thoroughly enjoyable evening of immersive Off-Broadway theater utterly unlike anything they’ve ever experienced! Guests leave educated, entertained, and buzzing with spirit.
