English Scrimshaw Theatrical Novelties offers the Twin Cities a jaunty assortment of live presentations surreptitiously designed to amuse even the most recalcitrant of theater goers. Free of pretense or compromise, these esoteric displays of physical comedy and - for lack of a more palatable descriptor- dance, promise fleeting engrossment without the intrusive discomfort of lasting enrichment.
Coming this fall, English Scrimshaw Theatrical Novelties presents an all new, semi-regular, vaguely ongoing comedy show. Book Club for Barflies mates a scholarly book club with a boorish variety show to produce an erudite, slack jawed mongrel.
Each show transforms a great piece of literature into cavalcade of live comedy, music and dance. From Voltaire to Agatha Christie, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Philip K. Dick, join us as we whiz on the shoulders of giants.
Look for more information soon!
