Forget the Dock | Sean McGrath’s BATH NIGHT is STFO so WTFAYWF?

We’re hearing good things about BATH NIGHT, the latest sketch comedy machine from Sean McGrath down at Shaking The Tree.

But if you don’t have a ticket, we’re hearing bad things.

Because this lil’ doggie is selling out.

It’s August, so what else are you going to do? Other than get embroiled in trouble at the Dock.

Next stop: SE Stark.

It runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday this week and next.

Not this one.  The OTHER Sean McGrath.

It’s (kinda) hot outside.

So what’s hot inside?

Just in time for the weekend – here are two shows to entice you into the great indoors.

First, opening on Friday is the latest from Sean McGrath, a sketch improv deal called BATH NIGHT. But it’s written and directed by McGrath and features Andrew Harris, Lori Ferraro, Brooke Totman, and Scott Engdahl – so we’re pretty sure you won’t take a bath if you invest in a ticket.

It runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays August 8th-30th at 8pm over at Shaking The Tree on SE Stark.

And second, as you’ve no doubt heard, THE THREE SISTERS at Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble is a thoroughly engaging new version of this classic from Dr. Dolor. Though all remaining shows are sold out, apparently people on the nightly standby list are getting in.

So take a chance and camp out at the line over at Reed.

You’ll be glad you did.

Feeling dirty? Clean up with Sean McGrath’s BATH NIGHT sketch comedy show Aug 8-30 at Shaking The Tree

The only info that can be divulged about this show is:

“Enter a world of hard boiled San Francisco cops, temple thugs, three toed sloths, sentimental airline pilots, NFL referees, and Korean Boy Bands. And that’s just the first twenty minutes.”

It’s a Sean McGrath joint. So wash your hair some other time and be there.

MAPLE AND VINE at CoHo lets frazzled contemporary characters try on the straight lines and buttoned down certainties of 1950’s life

In this odd but amusing narrative, contemporary characters choose to live life circa 1955. A bit too much exposition explaining the rules of the game. But things get interesting once dramas imported from the present play out under new regime. Sean McGrath shows he can do much more than improv.
