Join The Hideout at The Highball when we host 2 nights of 1950s comedy. The Andersons returns for two nights only, joined by the multi-talented Confidence Men: Improvised Mamet, and 1950s jazz of Gin Joint.
Meet John Anderson and his lovely wife Beverly, two of Butterfield County’s most outstanding citizens. Their love for their each other is only matched by their love for their three beautiful children – Mary-Alice, a young woman striving for sophistication; Luke, the eldest son with a gee-golly good attitude; and their youngest and most challenging child, Rocket. The Andersons is a fully improvised 1950’s sitcom! Based on ‘Leave It To Beaver’ and ‘Father Knows Best,’ this amazing comedic cast will tell heat-warming stories, with a splash of 1950’s nostalgia. The Andersons is a swell show for all. Honest!
You know what it takes to improvise a David Mamet play? Balls. Brass Balls. It takes brass balls to improvise a David Mamet play. Listen friend, the six intrepid members of Confidence Men have brass balls in spades and they are not afraid to use them to unfold the seedy underbelly of whatever the audience suggests on the spot. Every show, a new play will be improvised in the style of such great works as Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-Plow and House of Games, with all the rat-a-tat and grift of its actual predecessors.
GIN JOINT is a dynamic jazz duo based in Austin, TX. Nathalie Holmes is the doll that provides the sultry yet sweet vocals while Doug Ewart tickles the ivories. The duet is known for their theatrical interpretations of the jazz greats and well as their ability to add a ja…zzy twist to modern day pop songs from artists such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Michael Jackson.
Please note that these shows will be taking place at The Highball.
You will be able to pick up your will-call tickets from The Highball 30 minutes before showtime.
