SPIN THE BOTTLE – Friday, July 1st at 11pm
July’s edition of Spin the Bottle features, in no particular order:

The follicular stupendousness of EMMETT MONTGOMERY!
The raw throatiness of LESLI WOOD!
A puppetastic adaptation of the Greek tragedy AGAMEMNON!
The abundant drollery of UBIQUITOUS THEY!
The rueful words of BECKY BRUHN!
Sheer inexplicability from GUDE/LAURANCE!
Dirty, dirty thoughts from DARTANION LONDON!
…and more, more, more!

All held together by the lean and chewy BRUCE HALL!

Annex Theatre’s Spin the Bottle — featuring theater, music, dance, spoken word, film, and whatever else we can find — has appeared on the first Friday of every month since Sept 12, 1997.

Curated from the beginning by Bret Fetzer.
