California Musical Theatre has announced the extension of the wildly popular comedy Triple Espresso at The Cosmopolitan Cabaret. The show will now run through September 9, 2012. Tickets start at $20 for all performances. A theatrical comedy experience that defies categorization, Triple Espresso is a hysterical mix of music, magic and mega-laughs that critics compare to "an evening with the Marx Brothers."
After fourteen years and more than 8,500 performances in 45 cities worldwide, the highly caffeinated comedy Triple Espresso has been bringing Cosmopolitan Cabaret audiences to their feet night after night with its sky-high energy, original songs, parody send-ups and vaudeville-style ensemble. In the three-man play, set in the Triple Espresso Coffeehouse, the once-promising comedy team of "Maxwell, Butternut and Bean" is back for a reluctant celebration of their ill-fated "big break." Audiences will laugh along with the group's comically disastrous performances at everything from club luncheons to rodeos – all leading up to the moment that catapulted the trio right out of the spotlight, a tragically hilarious appearance on The Mike Douglas Show.
Triple Espresso ran for 12 straight years in Minneapolis and over 10 years in San Diego, and has enjoyed subsequent returns to both cities, as well as successful runs in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Detroit, London, Dublin, Berlin, Munich and many other cities. The show that began humbly around a coffee table in a Twin Cities cafe has become a critical and box office hit all over the world, entertaining more than 1.7 million people over the years.
Tickets for Triple Espresso are available now through the Wells Fargo Pavilion Box Office at 1419 H Street, by calling (916) 557-1999, or online at Tickets.com. They are also available at the Cosmopolitan Cabaret Box Office, which opens two hours prior to every performance. Single tickets start at $20 for all performances. Evening performances are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Matinee performances are Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.
The Cosmopolitan Cabaret season is produced under the direction of Executive Producer Richard Lewis, Artistic Director Glenn Casale and Associate Producer Marlene Shire-Anderson. All productions are performed at The Cosmopolitan Cabaret, an intimate 200-seat theatre venue where you can enjoy cocktails and refreshments during the show from the comfort of your seat. The Cosmopolitan Cabaret is located at 1000 K Street, across from the Crest Theatre. For more information visit www.CosmopolitanCabaret.com.
