The Perfect, Fabulous Life of Ms. Golden Delicious

September 16th at 7:30pm

Ms. Golden Delicious is a drag queen with the Perfect, Fabulous Life - at least, that's what she wants you to believe. Appearances can be deceiving, and for Golden, perfection and failure look pretty similar. One of New York’s most entertaining queens debuts her hilarious, raunchy, and thought-provoking one-woman show: a half-lip synced, half live-sung drag extravaganza tailor-fit for drag enthusiasts, theatre fans, and anyone who isn't boring!

Pork Pie Hat: Live Improv Comedy

September 21st at 9:00pm

Pork Pie Hat has been a house team at the Salt City Improv Theatre since 2012. They perform short-form, improv comedy in the style of the hit TV show “Whose Line Is It, Anyway?" Since all scenes are created spontaneously based on audience suggestions (nothing is scripted or rehearsed), the show that you attend has never been seen before ... and will never be seen again. This is truly comedy on the edge.

Unleashed! Improv Presents: Other People's Shows

September 22nd at 7:30pm

You know Fringe is awesome ... But you can’t possibly see all the shows. That’s why Unleashed! will happily perform their interpretations of other people’s shows for you! Not only that, they’ll be significantly shorter than the originals, so you can really cram way more Fringe into your life. The troupe hilariously improvises pieces based on Fringe Guide descriptions, so look over the guide, suggest the one you want to see most and then watch what happens.
