On August 8th, 2014, THE IMBIBLE: A SPIRITED HISTORY OF DRINKING opened at the New York International Fringe Festival for what was supposed to be a five-performance run. After sold-out FringeNYC and Fringe Encore engagements, a front-page feature in the Arts section of The New York Times, and three hit sequels, the production is now in an open run at New World Stages. On Friday, July 5th, THE IMBIBLE: A SPIRITED HISTORY OF DRINKING will play its 1,000th performance and prepare to enter its sixth smash year as one of the 100 longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time! This show is the original edition of THE IMBIBLE series of educational musical comedies about alcohol, and delves deeply into the science and history of spirits and cocktails – three of which are served during the performance! Join this unique company of performers, equally versed in education and entertainment, for an evening of cocktails, comedy, and a cappella music offered up with the kind of vibrancy that only THE IMBIBLE can deliver. Tickets are $89 for Floor Seating including three complimentary craft cocktails, or $105 for Premium Seating at the bar with a fourth drink added, and can be purchased by calling 800-447-7400 or visiting Imbible.NYC.
