Part theatrical pageant, part civic ceremony, part CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE - BEERTOWN is a thoroughly unique theatrical experience. And it opened last night, March 2, at Know Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Cincinnati is the latest stop of Beertown Takes America, a national touring project where dog & pony dc artists collaborate with local artists and the greater communities of cities across the country to craft new and locally-relevant versions of the company's signature show BEERTOWN.

dog & pony dc's ensemble-devised BEERTOWN is an interactive exploration of history, civic ritual, identity, community, and memory incorporating live music, dance, group song...and it all starts with a dessert potluck.

At Beertown, you will be welcomed into the 20th Quinquennial Beertown Time Capsule Day celebration, where every five years the imagined American town unearths its beloved Time Capsule and decides what stays, what goes, and what new symbols of Beertown should be interred this time.

Which tells the story of our town better: A campaign button or a family bible? A license plate or a movie projector? You, the audience, help them decide each night! Visit a place where remembering is a communal act, and everyone's opinion is heard and counted: Beertown.
