2016 New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee Christian De Gré (Fatty Fatty No Friends) and award winning company Mind The Art Entertainment (Beware the Chupacabra & Whiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg) present a dark and twisted new song cycle about the horrors and wonders of death. Starring a macabre mix of Broadway veterans and Mind The Art all stars, A Drink with Death embarks on a journey to the underworld through the eyes of the mythical Mexican ambassador of death, La Muerte. As a handful of lost souls come face to face with their own demise, they take a final shot with La Muerte en route to whatever afterlife they believe in. Hailed as “Burton-esque, funny and heartbreaking, dark and light hearted, old school yet completely modern” join in the drunken celebration of our very own mortality.

“A creepy-carnival vibe. Simply put it’s twisted and wonderful.” –Time Out New York

“De Gre’s macabre songs are impressible sombre and earnestly spirited” –NY Theater Now

“De Gré’s Sondheim-esque operettas are the perfect answer to the accusation that there is no new musical theater of quality being made.” –OffTheBeatenTrackTheater
