The Best of Times Vs. The Worst of Times | Drinking & Writing Theater @ Haymarket Pub & Brewery | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Tuesdays, Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 30 2016
Price: $10
As you file in off Halsted, through the noisy main floor of the Haymarket Pub and Brewery, you see a quote by Brecht printed on the wall: “A theater without beer is just a museum.” This is the principle that governs the little performance space on the other side of the black felt curtain, home to Drinking and Writing Theater, which continues its “Vs.” series with The Best of Times Vs. The Worst of Times. The laid-back atmosphere of the room gives the fun, hip cast an ideal atmosphere for their zany original pieces. A randomly selected judge announces a “winner” in the end. Some of the segments were a little art-schooly, but there were plenty of belly laughs to be had, as well as some poignant moments. Best enjoyed with a beer, which you may order before the show. —Max Maller
