A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Garry Trudeau’s iconic characters come to life onstage in the satirical musical comedy Doonesbury, by Trudeau and Tony-nominated composer Elizabeth Swados. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip, this musical follows Mike Doonesbury and his pals as they get ready to graduate, leave their cozy Walden College enclave, and face the real world. The biting and tuneful satire of Doonesbury is more relevant than ever in 2017. Come and see why Frank Rich of the New York Times said, “The qualities that have made Garry Trudeau’s comic strip ”Doonesbury” a national treasure are all present in the musical-comedy version.” Produced and directed by Mark Falconer, with musical direction by Will Buck (Oh, Brother! at Feinstein’s/54 Below.)
