Why See The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking?

Now in its third smash hit year!

Join world-renowned mixologist and raconteur Anthony Caporale for a boozy romp through the history of spirits and cocktails in this new play with drinks and music!

Now playing at the New World Stages, The Imbible sweeps audiences along a 10,000-year journey through history and across the globe accompanied by craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters acapella group!

The Huffington Post says The Imbible is "an absolute must-see!"

Sit back and enjoy the music and drinks while Anthony holds forth on the history and science behind alcoholic beverages, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, and - like any good bartender - keeps his guests laughing throughout the night!

The New York Times declares The Imbible is "the best Fringe deal!"

Combining Anthony's encyclopedic knowledge of beverage history and decades of bartending experience with his legendary skills as a storyteller and entertainer, The Imbible treats audiences to a completely original and thoroughly enjoyable evening of immersive theatre utterly unlike anything they've ever experienced!
