The Eulogy

November 29, 2015
$15 General / $12 DCAC Members

See the award­winning, sold­out hit of the 2015 Capital Fringe, IndyFringe, Scranton Fringe, and Atlantic Fringe!

After an eight-­city North American tour, The Eulogy returns to DC for one night only! This will be the last performance of The Eulogy for 2015 and the last performance in North America before the show heads to Australia.

Set at the funeral of “Thomas” — a man who, after a lifetime of gluttony, died from eating too many eggs — The Eulogy features a menagerie of characters whose inept and inapt speeches give anything but a proper homage. The only tears at this funeral will be from laughing.

Praise for ​The Eulogy:​
“a comic gem” The Washington Post
“hilarious … deftly written” The Indianapolis Star
“a triumph” Washington City Paper
★★★★★ “insanely funny” NUVO
★★★★★ “brilliant” DC Theatre Scene
★★★★★ “magnificent” DC Metro Theater Arts
“outstanding” The Coast
“incredible” NEPA Scene

Ages 15+

Chinese Menu

November 21, 2015
$12 General / $10 DCAC Members

Chinese Menu invites you to our November show where we get in touch with what makes us great. Sure, we regularly bring in guests from other theaters but these shows started out as and remain a gathering place for the very best improvisers in DC.

The overwhelming majority of those players have spent time learning, teaching, or performing at Washington Improv Theater. The team here at Chinese Menu appreciates all they do. How do we celebrate them? We bring back the team that, in our opinion, is on a short list of the best teams to ever come out of DC.

161!!!

Come out and join the cast:
Colin Murchie
Dave Johnson
Tyler Korba
Katie (Carson) Webster
Topher Bellavia
Mark Chalfant
Greer Smith
Mikael Johnson
Mike Bass
Catherine Deadman
The night will be kicked off by returning DC comic, Kay Marvin!
There will be revelry, pizza and beer next door after the show.

Press Play Hump Days:
Comedy Turducken Night

November 18, 2015
Presale: $10 General / $8 DCAC Members
At the door: $12 General / $10 DCAC Members

Press Play hosts and produces a monthly show featuring some of the best comedy, music, and storytelling acts in the area!

This month, Press Play is getting into the holiday spirit with our Comedy Turducken Night. It’s improv, stuffed into music, stuffed into stand­up, stuffed into imprpov! And unlike the poultry turducken, it’s safe for vegetarians. And we hope it will be way funnier though a turducken is pretty funny already, in a sick way.

Members of the DC Arts Center get $2 off each ticket. All audience members get $200 off a workplace improv workshop from Mindhatch (www.mindhatchllc.com)!

We’ll have real performances from some funny and talented people:
* Stand­up from Charles Lipper
* Improv from Middle Child Improv Troupe
* Music from AZTEC SUN
* Improv from Mighty Mighty School Project
* And more make­em­ups from your hosts, Press Play

Press Play was founded in 2010 and, not to brag or anything, has yet to have a show with a fart joke. Seriously. That’s how committed Press Play is to the craft of longform improv. The group performs in festivals around the country, theaters around DC, and once at a birthday party.
