The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking

Written by Anthony Caporale
Directed by Nicole DiMattei
"Absolutely must-do in NYC!"
Hailed as “remarkably compelling” by Time Out New York and “an absolute must-see” by The Huffington Post, THE IMBIBLE sweeps audiences along alcohol’s 10,000-year history across the globe, accompanied by three complimentary craft cocktails and the vocal stylings of The Backwaiters acapella group! Anthony pours through beverage history, the science of alcohol, and its economic and political impact on our cultural development, all while brewing beer, distilling spirits, and singing with the Backwaiters. Presented in its entirety in a bar, THE IMBIBLE treats audiences to a completely original and thoroughly enjoyable evening of immersive theatre utterly unlike anything they’ve ever experienced! Guests leave educated, entertained, and buzzing with spirit.
