TONIGHT! Friday, January 20 I ABBIE  Abbie Hoffman embodies the Sixties like no other activist. As the most outspoken leader of the counter-culture’s revolution, he remains one of the best-known figures from one of America’s most turbulent times. “Abbie” begins as a 1987 lecture delivered by Hoffman, and is based entirely on his speeches and writings. Historical photos and videos accompany Abbie’s telling of candid tales from his youth and education at Brandeis and Berkeley, and from the Chicago 7 and the debilitating experience of living underground–creating a revealing portrait of the man called “the clown prince of the Sixties.” Written with the permission of Hoffman’s wife. Presented straight from the West End Theater in NYC. “You couldn’t ask for a better meeting of subject and performer…Abbie is heartfelt.”  Andy Webster, The New York Times.

The show also features many great, surprise guests from SNL, SC, BWC & The PIT!

Yet, Bing is a consummate professional and knows “the show must go on!” at all costs. What follows is one character’s journey through grief and agony as, alone on stage, he attempts to compensate for the bands absence by singing all 5 parts and harmonies to all the classic holiday songs, requested by the audience… and occasionally with the audience’s help!
