Drew Droege's BRIGHT COLORS AND BOLD PATTERNS Adds Holiday Performance Off-Broadway
Due to remarkable demand from glowing critical and audience response, Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is adding an additional holiday week performance on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at 2:00 PM.
YouTube sensation Drew Droege (the internet's "Chloe", Drunk History, and Bob's Burgers) returns to New York for a limited holiday engagement of Bright Colors And Bold Patterns at the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow St, New York) now through December 30, directed by Michael Urie (Buyer & Cellar).
Written and performed by Drew Droege, Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is a New York Times' Critics Pick comedy. Time Out New York's Adam Feldman named it as an honorable mention among the 10 Best of 2016 along with a glowing 4 Star review.
Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled scream riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says "please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns." In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?
The limited engagement plays its final two weeks Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow St, New York through December 30 at 7:30pm. Performance schedule available at www.barrowstreettheatre.com. Tickets from $35 are available online, in person at the Barrow Street Theatre box office open daily at 1pm, or by calling (866) 811-4111.
