1 PART EDUCATION. 2 PARTS RECREATION. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway productions in history with three hugely successful sequels (and counting)! Hailed as “remarkably compelling” by Time Out New York and consistently reviewed by audiences as one of the best Off-Broadway shows on sites like Google, TripAdvisor, and Yelp, A SPIRITED HISTORY OF DRINKING sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe, accompanied by three 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.
