Monica Bill Barnes & Company

Host Robbie Saenz de Viteri turns a downtown dance studio into an after-work office party complete with wall-to-wall carpeting, karaoke, and dollar store decorations.  Dressed in a pair of everyday men’s suits, performers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass crash the party playing two totally familiar guys who go to great lengths to win over the crowd.  Every desperate attempt reveals how hilariously unsuited they are for these roles they insist on playing.  Come for the free drink, stay for the hope of a life-changing experience.

 “Happy Hour breaks all the rules of theater… it offers not merely terrific entertainment, but more than a measure of poignancy, a sense of loss even amid the fun-and-games.” – DC Metro

“Like all good happy hours, this one has plentiful munchies and libations.  And like the best ones, it offers abundant laughter.” – The New York Times
